ECCB Bright Sparks Programme Comes in for High Praise from Interns

The Eastern Caribbean Central Bank (ECCB) Bright Sparks Programme has come in for high commendation from three of its most recent participants.

Jenielle Brathwaite from Grenada, Olivia Langhorne from Saint Lucia and Christina Cho from Saint Christopher (Saint Kitts) and Nevis, speak glowingly of their internship experience on this week’s episode of ECCB Connects, the Bank’s weekly public education outreach programme.

The interns said they were grateful for the opportunity which allowed them to gain practical experience in a professional Information Technology (IT) work environment. They were also able to transition from internship to full-time employment at the ECCB.

The ECCB Bright Sparks Programme is open to young people from the eight ECCB member countries who have training in Information Technology, bringing them together for an all-expense paid internship in the Management Information Systems Department at the ECCB. Since the programme was launched in 2017, five of the region’s young IT bright sparks have benefitted.
