Message from Chairman of Board of Directors
On behalf of the Board of Directors of the Bahamas Technical and Vocational Institute (BTVI), I am pleased to welcome you to our BTVI family.
As Chairman of the Board, it is my pleasure to lead this august body of visionary and successful leaders. We have been mandated by the government of The Bahamas to work with BTVI’s management to map out an innovative and progressive future in a technologically advanced world. We take this responsibility seriously. We recognize BTVI as the bastion of technical and vocational education and training in the country. BTVI plays a pivotal role in the expansion of a skilled labour force; therefore, we play a significant role in nation building.
At BTVI, we have a clearly defined mission: to “Provide learning opportunities that enable individuals to be globally competitive and economically independent.” Our very vision speaks to the “high standards in preparing adults throughout the archipelago for the world of work.” We are determined to ensure that this institution continues to be a hub for diverse technical and vocational offerings, taught at high standards, in preparation for a multifaceted workforce that demands the best.
Indeed, quality is fundamental for the Board as we work towards a broader national vision. We are obligated to ensure that the training systems at BTVI remain relevant and on the cutting edge, graduating skilled labour to match the market demand.
On behalf of the Board of Directors, I thank you for your support of this significant, viable institution. Welcome to our family of learners!
BTVI Board of Directors
