SCELL, The University of St. Martin’s School of Continuing Education and Life Long Learning, held the first day of its Supervisory 2-Day Boot Camp on Tuesday, September 20 at USM. The second day of the Boot Camp will be held on Wednesday, September 21st, 2016.

The training was well received by St. Martin business community and over 120 participants registered.  Just to name a few of the organizations:  Princess Juliana Airport, White & Yellow Cross, Total Cleaning, Telem Group, Port of St. Maarten, N.V. GEBE, L ‘Esperance Hotel, TEATT, Orco Bank, Nagico Bank, First Caribbean Bank, Travel Planners and many more.


The Supervisory 2-Day Boot Camp introduced participants to key traits and characteristics of effective Supervisors.  In addition, participants were introduced to topics such as: Communication Styles & Methods, Leadership Traits, Coaching & Mentoring techniques, Active Listening Skills & most importantly how to empower employees to excel in their positions.

Supervisors left the Boot Camp looking forward to Day Two and ready to apply the skills they learned utilizing 21st century role playing exercises, real world scenarios and engaging in cooperative and collaborative learning exercises.

Dr. Natasha Gittens, Director of SCELL stated: SCELL has planned a follow up session for all attending participants in November.  We understand that training is not effective unless participants are able to apply their new knowledge, receive constructive feedback and participate in round table discussions with their peers.  I encourage organizations that did not register employees to attend this phenomenal training register for the upcoming Supervisory Boot camps on:  September 27 & 28th & October 18th & 19th.


Supervisors were very impressed with Day One of the Boot Camp and stated:

“The presenter was well prepared for the training and it met my satisfaction to the highest level. “
