4.2. Develop and promote young people’s core skills and competencies in line with Bermuda’s employment needs;
4.3. Establish partnerships with businesses and professions to create and maintain training schemes;
4.4. Encourage and promote entrepreneurship;
4.5. Undertake surveys to present a fuller picture on the status of young people in Bermuda
