With the changing dynamics in the economy and the workforce, the University of the West Indies Open Campus Anguilla is highlighting its new set of workforce development programmes aimed at local professionals. The courses, which are part of the University’s Continuing and Professional Education (CPE) programme, are designed for persons pursuing tertiary education qualifications, as well as for university certified individuals who are seeking to enhance their knowledge in a particular area, or fulfil workforce development needs.
The new programmes were originally slated to be launched in September last year, but were deferred as a result of Hurricane Irma. The programmes which will be delivered locally in a face-to-face mode are now scheduled to begin during the week of 12th February 2018. They include the Certificate in Brand Management, Business Writing & Communication, Entrepreneurship and Small Business Management, Procurement Management, Internal Auditing, Accounting Information Systems, Family Law, Facilities Management and Occupational Health & Safety (OHS).

“These new programmes complement the established favourites like Supervisory Management, Law for HR Practitioners, Introduction to Counselling and Conversational Spanish,” says UWI Open Campus BOT Manager, Dr. Phyllis Fleming-Banks. “We are particularly excited because they are geared towards meeting the social and economic needs of our communities. The Certificate in Brand Management for example, is designed for a wide-ranging audience of marketing and non-marketing professionals and associates. Participants will be exposed to techniques to build a strong brand to drive company growth. We are also partnering with the public and private sector to present the Certificate in Occupational Health & Safety. These programmes, in particular our Law For HR Practitioners, which focuses on employment or labour law, are very timely and relevant,” the local UWI Representative said.
Interested persons are invited to contact the UWI Open Campus at anguilla@open.uwi.edu (telephone 497-8156) for further information.
