Testimonials

  • Jason Pinder

    My experience at Structural Systems has been a positive one.  My supervisors were helpful throughout the practical training. The Apprenticeship Programme allowed me to further my welding studies, more specifically at the Samuel Jackman Prescod Polytechnic.  Currently, I am attending at the Samuel Jackman Prescod Polytechnic where I am studying Electrical Installation.  My manager, supervisor and my workmates at Structural Systems are supporting me in my studies. 

    I would advise any youngster, who wants to acquire skills to apply at the Barbados Vocational Training Board and attend the Samuel Jackman Prescod Polytechnic.  My advice would be get a skill and “keep off the block”.
