G.C. Foster College is now accepting applications for the Free ICT Technical Support Programme for January 2020. This programme is offered jointly by the Vocational Training Development Institute (VTDI) and NCTVET. Participants will be trained and certified to work in the growing BPO Sector.
Two students from the GC Foster College were certified as official Beach Volleyball Referees. Bradley Nelson and Chevanese Johnson, students in the Bachelor in Education programme at the College, successfully completed both theoretical and practical assessments established by the Jamaica Volleyball Referees Association (JaVRA). The certification course has qualified them to officiate at both local and International beach Volleyball games, as it has been sanctioned by the Jamaica Volleyball Association (JaVA) and the FIVB. The two will officiate at the 2019 NORCECA Beach Volleyball Tour and also in the 2020 Olympic qualifiers for female. G.C. Foster College lauds this accomplishment and encourages other students to capitalize on these opportunities.
Eleven athletes from the G.C. Foster College/Sprintec Track Club were selected to be members of the World Championship team that will represent Jamaica in Doha, Qatar from September 27 to October 6, 2019.
The members of the Jamaica contingent comprising of 55 athletes were revealed at the JAAA Press Conference held on Wednesday September 11 at the Courtyard Marriott in Kingston. This inclusion of G.C. Foster College / Sprintec Track Club is an improvement to the historic qualification to the World Championship in 2017 where 10 athletes from both entities were selected to represent Jamaica in London.
