|The STEP Cayman Islands Council is proud to announce the creation of a scholarship programme, known as “First Step”, designed to facilitate an introduction for interested and eligible candidates to the trusts industry in the Cayman Islands.|
The scholarship will consist of full funding for the globally recognized STEP Entry Level Certificate programme administered by CLT International London, and will consist of a series of online lessons in the area of trusts and trust administration, concluding with a formal examination.
The certificate is the first “step” towards obtaining a full Trust and Estate Practitioner (‘TEP’) designation, which is the gold standard within the global trusts industry.
Eligible candidates must either be a Caymanian, status holder, or permanent resident of the Cayman Islands. It is anticipated that three full scholarships will be provided on an annual rotating basis.
Candidates must have a minimum of 5 ‘O levels’ and 3 ‘A levels’ (or equivalent) and a passing grade including in math and English. Alternatively, candidates must have completed secondary school. Educational qualifications outside of these requirements will be considered on a case-by-case basis.
Interested candidates should email firstname.lastname@example.org and request an application form. The deadline for applications is the 30th of November, 2021.
