The Cayman Islands Further Education Centre toured Butterfield on Wednesday, 28 March 2012.  Students visited the Treasury Dealing Department hosted by Phil Turnbull, Manager Treasury Dealings and watched real-time currency trades take place.  The students met Human Resources and Marketing & Communications staff where they discussed the key competencies and employability skills expected by today’s top employers.

The students took part in a customer service teamwork training activity and demonstrated their employability skills to the HR team. Business teacher Mark Slade said “Butterfield were extremely helpful and friendly and treated the students as fellow professional workers. The students enjoyed the visit, learned about Butterfield and consider Butterfield a top Caymanian employer”
Deborah Davidson, E-learning specialist at Butterfield said “I thought the student’s questions were very good and showed the students were engaged and learning, which is what we are all about!” The Director of The Cayman Islands Further Education Centre, Robyn Kyne said “we are now encouraging more employer visits by our students where they can demonstrate the employability skills in actual working environments they are developing here at CIFEC.  We will be offering BTEC Level 3 in Business (equivalent to AP/A Levels) in September and this will start to include visits to local employers”.
