NTI Launches Citizenship Course

This course will equip every Barbadian with the knowledge, skills and values needed to be citizens of good character and competence in a SMART Barbados that is engaging with a digital world.

The course is designed to help participants gain self-confidence and a better understanding of their place in society. Through the use of various learning tools, participants will:

  1. discover how to assess their skills and chart a path to their desired goals;
  2. understand the importance of integrity and striving for excellence as key elements to accomplish their goals;
  3. build self-awareness as they learn the necessary skills to communicate and work well with others;
  4. understand the importance of respectful and positive interactions that improve relationships at home, at work and in our communities.

Ultimately, it is designed to help build a strong sense of national identity and what it means to be Bajan contributing to the development of Barbados.


NTI is part of Government’s Retraining and Retooling programme (ReRe), itself a construct within The Barbados Economic Recovery and Transformation (BERT) Programme.

“The Re-Re Program, which involves the Retooling, Empowering, Retraining and Enfranchising of workers has to be at the core of the International Monetary Funded (IMF) program over the next four years. This is the next phase of the Barbados Economic Recovery and Transformation (BERT) program that is a comprehensive retraining of Barbadian workers in an effort to make the workforce “globally fit for purpose”.
