THE STVINCENT and the Grenadines Chapter of the Global Career Institute (GCI) honoured its students for their academic excellence at an Award Ceremony and dinner on June 10, at Grenadines House.

A release from GCI states that more than 40 students were present to receive medals and certificates, many having been certified mainly in Geriatric Nursing Care.

TheYearly Academic Excellence Award was awarded to Monette Samuel Pierre. Other students received medals and certificates of completion.

GCI has been in operation in St Vincent and the Grenadines for just over one year and the entity said it is already making an impact on the local education sector.

Its chair, T.A Simone Blackwood, said the feedback thus far has been amazing. She said that GCI has been able to contribute to the economy of St Vincent and the Grenadines by providing training and employment.

“We have a coordinator on the ground working with the students and the experience has been amazing and the feedback from the students has been overwhelming”.

GCI was founded in 2016 in Trinidad and Tobago, where it is headquartered, with the aim of assisting areas including auxiliary healthcare careers, entrepreneurship, and activating critical thinking. Outside of Trinidad and Tobago, GCI also operates virtually in Barbados, Grenada, Jamaica and

SVG. It is focused on Caribbean Integration, Regional Networking and Community Building, the release states.

Through GCI, persons can access affordable online and hybrid Certificate and Diploma Programmes in such areas as Healthcare, Entrepreneurship and Business Management, and Journalism.
