More than 30 officers from the Department of Corrections completed leadership and management training at the Bermuda College.

A spokesman for the Ministry of National Security said the department offered the course in collaboration with the Bermuda College’s division of Athora Professional and Career Education.

The programme, designed to equip corrections staff with leadership and management skills, ran from February 29 to May 13.

Basic officers, managers, civilian supervisors and senior officers who passed a qualifying exam took part.

First session participants: Darynda Caisey-Brown, Michael Christopher, James Codrington, Thereasa DeRoza, Deonie Furbert, Shawn Gibbons, Sabrina Bourne, Gladwin Simons, Dwight Richards, Julee Smith, Winnette Thomas, Laura Walker and Scott Turner

The spokesman added: “The course modules were meticulously chosen to align with the department's administrative and operational needs, focusing on targeted leadership outcomes.

“The programme's structure encouraged active participation and intentional learning, with participants being tested after each session to reinforce their understanding and application of the material.

“The training sessions, held weekly in two groups, were rigorous. They required a minimum passing mark of 70 per cent and culminated in a comprehensive two-hour final exam.”

Vance Campbell, the Acting Minister of National Security, said the training highlighted the department’s “focus on continuous professional development”.

He added: “The skills acquired by our corrections staff will not only enhance their leadership capabilities but also contribute to the overall efficiency and effectiveness of our department.”

Keeva Joell-Benjamin, the Commissioner of Corrections, said: “We believe that our staff are our greatest asset, capable of driving positive change within our department.

“The completion of this course reflects our dedication to providing continuous training opportunities that empower our team to excel in their roles."

Participants celebrated completing the course during the Bermuda College graduation ceremony last week.
