Accordingly, the mandate of the Department of Workforce Development (DWD) has expanded beyond the notion of employment or vocational training to include professional development and careers.

The DWD is responsible for the implementation of recommendations contained in the National Training Plan, establishing industry standards and coordinating and implementing training programmes to develop and prepare suitable job searchers with the appropriate online jobs in Bermuda – and matching them with employers.


The DWD is made up of two sections: Career Development & Training Our Career Development section is responsible for the accurate assessment of individuals for employment and career development, as well as working with employers on the placement of prepared individuals in available and suitable posts.
