Local Students Recognised for Completing (STEP) Foundation Course

The H. Lavity Stoutt Community College (HLSCC), in coordination with the Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners (STEP) in the BVI, recently congratulated students who have rpassed STEP's Foundation course. The course is the gold standard in the trusts and estate industry, coveted by employers in the offshore trust arena.

At a brief ceremony held at the offices of O'Neal Webster, Vanessa King, Chairperson of STEP BVI, welcomed all students and stressed that they were embarking upon a course of study that would lead them to obtaining the premier
international qualification within the field. HLSCC Vice President, Dr. Bryan Penn, lauded their success and noted his pleasure in seeing so many students coming through the ranks of the financial services industry. He stressed that HLSCC, through the Financial Services Institute (FSI), was committed to supporting the industry and to investing in the development of local staff. FSI Director, Andrew Burns, who served as tutor for the course, congratulated the students on their exemplary performance and stressed that their success was not only recognised in the BVI, but also internationally as STEP is a global organisation.

FSI delivers STEP courses and also coordinates face-to-face support for Diploma level modules. Anyone interested in learning what the STEP Programme has to offer should contact Mr. Burns at aburns@hlscc.edu.vg
