Twenty young Barbadians proved to be eager participants in the second Smooth Transitions Career Camp staged at The St. Michael’s School in the Barbados capital, Bridgetown, in August, 2018

The participants, in the age group 13 – 19, were drawn from a cross-section of that island’s secondary schools and spent a week learning more about their personality, interests, skills and suitable careers, in addition to how to prepare themselves for the world of work. Poise and deportment were introduced by a special guest, Miss Alexandria Secondary School, Ebony Forde.
After using The Career Key Test and other materials provided by CHOICES Career & Education Advice, the group researched careers suited to their personality and which they had never thought about and were challenged with mock interviews and the elevator pitch speech.
In addition to having the opportunity of practical experiences such as creating their own vision board to guide their future success, they also engaged in sporting activities, ice-breaker and team-building exercises, a treasure hunt and talent show.
According to Angela deFreitas, General Manager of CHOICES, whose company partnered with Smooth Transitions in presenting the career camp, “The career camp was a unique idea, conceptualised by Smooth Transitions, was well-received by those who participated and should certainly help them in moving forward successfully”. A transition camp for students moving on from 6th to 7th grade was held simultaneously and was equally as successful.

Hello St. Lucia and the students of St. Joseph's Catholic Secondary School. Thanks for participating in a great workshop.


More than 100 students from two secondary schools in the eastern Caribbean island of Antigua recently benefitted from a partnership between CHOICES Career & Education Advice and the Rotary Club of Antigua which has helped them in finding the right career path. The students aged from 13-18, were from the Christian Faith Academy and the Princess Margaret Secondary School, both located in the island’s capital, St. John’s. They were introduced to the Career Key, a self-assessment tool which helped them to identify their interests, skills, values, aptitudes and personality in a workshop entitled “Choosing the Right Career; Matching Skills & Subjects” which was presented by Angela deFreitas, general manager of CHOICES. The CHOICES career programme was identified several years ago when Mrs Evangeline Allen became president-elect of the Rotary Club and began negotiations with CHOICES towards implementing it as part of her presidency. According to Mrs. Allen, the Rotary initiative is about helping young persons to realise their full potential through good educational and career choices. The workshops at these schools were part of CHOICES 2017 Caribbean tours which have so far included several other schools in Antigua and also schools in Barbados and St. Lucia. CHOICES is this year celebrating 20 years of its flagship publication CHOICES Career & Education Magazine in Jamaica and the culmination of and 10 years of work with the Career Key in the wider Caribbean.
