Guyana: The Ministry of Labour and the Board of Industrial Training (BIT) of Republic of Guyana shared a glimpse of the life journey of Natiesha Albert who is a resident of Region Ten, Linden. On January 6, 2023, while sharing the bit of information, BIT stated, “Natiesha Albert, a resident of Linden, Region Ten, like others across the country, learned about the Board of Industrial Training’s (BIT) vast vocational and technical programmes a few years ago.”
As per the official post, this discovery prompted her to begin training in the agency’s extensive Garment Construction programme in 2021. She said that it was a life-changing experience for her because it allowed her to express her fashion aesthetic on a whole new level.
This includes bringing her family along for the ride as she designs stunning clothing for them to wear. Her BIT journey did not end there, as she became certified in Small Engine Repairs in 2022.
Natiesha told BIT officials that this additional achievement is due to the Minister of Labour, Joseph Hamilton’s speech urged people to learn two or more life skills in order to secure jobs in the country’s emerging industries.
She stated that his words of encouragement made her realize how important it was to be a part of the country’s development, which led to her decision to enter a male-dominated profession. A decision she does not regret because it allowed her to gain an interesting skill despite being the only female in the programme.
She thanked BIT for providing her with the opportunity to become a qualified individual who can meet the needs of the country’s labour force. Natiesha’s journey, on the other hand, is far from over, as she plans to receive Heavy-Duty Equipment Operation (HDEO) training this year.
“She will be one of many multitalented BIT graduates once this feat is completed,” it concluded.
