Virtual lunch and learn sessions have been organised by the Ministry of Education’ as part of its signature school consultation process.

The first took place yesterday and the second is scheduled to take place on April 21, from 6pm to 7pm.

The meetings are via Zoom and present an opportunity for government to share information about its proposals while gaining feedback, said a spokeswoman.

This week, the government is launching an “engagement process” to determine the first two signatures to be introduced with the opening of signature schools at CedarBridge Academy and the Berkeley Institute in September 2022.

The public will be presented with 11 proposed signatures to be introduced to schools as part of government’s education reform plans.

A ministry spokeswoman said: “We’ve reached an exciting phase in the education reform process, which allows us all to work together and innovate in order to create a public school system that positions our students for long-term success.”

A report titled ‘Future World of Work: Bermuda’ shares international research on the types of jobs that could be available for young people in the future.
