News Release: HAMILTON, Bermuda – The Department of Workforce Development is now accepting applications for the 2022/23 Graduate Trainee Programme. 

As part of the Bermuda Economic Recovery Plan’s Youth Employment Strategy, the two Graduate Trainee Programmes held thus far have provided twenty-one (21)  recent college/university graduates with coaching, employability skills training and one-on-one support to develop their personal brand. They have also had the opportunity to gain industry experience in their area of study.

After the programme, participants benefitted from a three-month work placement sponsored by the Department of Workforce Development to assist with transitioning into their careers.

Minister of Labour, Jason Hayward, said: ” The first two offerings of this programme have proved to be a success and align with goal four of the Ministry’s Youth Employment Strategy, to expand apprenticeships and internship opportunities. I look forward to the start of the third cohort of graduates joining the programme. We are committed to our youth’s continued support and development to ensure they are prepared to become Bermuda’s future leaders.”
