She added that while the average number over the years has been around 140 to 180, this year has seen 300 students coming on board.“While we are cognisant that many of you would be furthering your studies at the University of Guyana and other institutions, it is very important to note that demonstrating critical important qualities is pertinent in securing your dream job, or possibly getting your feet into the world of work. It is on this note that I urge you to inculcate attitudes and qualities that will hold you in good stead”, she told the students, who assembled at the Bladen Hall Multilateral School’s auditorium.The REDO reminded students that participation in the work study programme is no guarantee that the agency or company to which they would be sent would employ them after they would have completed their stint. She stressed that the experience would help the participants to better understand a number of issues that are important in the world of work.“Remember, you are not only representing yourself but, importantly, your school and the Department of Education, Region Four. Whatever you do will either give us praise or create embarrassment for us; so irrespective of how insignificant it may seem, do the right thing always,” she admonished.last_img read more
