During her visit to Belize in August, President Tsai Ing-Wen spoke at the National Assembly and emphasized the importance of education and technical and vocational training. As a follow up to that commitment, 6 Belizean students (TAIWAN VOCATION VO) from ITVET (Institute for Technical and Vocational Education and Training) have been invited by the Government of the Republic of China (Taiwan) to participate in the 2018 Vocational Training Project in Hospitality Services. A total of 20 participants from Belize and the other Caribbean allies of Taiwan will receive approximately 397 hours of training. Participants will take Taiwan’s National Technicians’ Skills Examinations and their professional abilities, skills and knowledge are expected to be equivalent to the minimum standards of passing the skills certification of a Class C certified technician which related to hospitality management. The training starts November 12, 2018 and ends January 22, 2019 in Taiwan.
