Every summer, the Bank offers several students the opportunity to gain on-the-job training in a range of fields. The students, chosen from local (and occasionally regional) tertiary institutions, are placed as much as possible in departments across the organisation that are related to their field of study.

SPISE (Students Programme for Innovation in Science and Engineering)
Each summer, the Bank sponsors a secondary school student, aged 16-18, to attend SPISE, a four-week programme for young people in the region who aspire to a career in a STEM-related field. The programme, which is sponsored by the Caribbean Science Foundation, is based on MIT’s MITES (Minority Introduction to Engineering and Science) programme.
