The NTI Citizenship Course

To ensure that participants have a comprehensive understanding of the concept of citizenship, they must enrol in and complete, at a minimum, the Course Essentials component of the NTI Citizenship Course which can be accessed by clicking the images above.

This eLearning course is designed to be completed at one’s own pace and convenience, and the full course takes approximately 13 hours to finish. The Citizenship Course, like all courses on the NTI Learning Management System, is provided free of charge to all Barbadian citizens.

The course focuses on various aspects of our civic responsibilities and rights as citizens. It equips participants with the tools required to enhance communication, collaboration, and active engagement in community, church, and country. Additionally, it aids individuals in exploring personal goals, assessing their skills, comprehending the functioning of our government, and understanding the roles and responsibilities of our official leaders. Ultimately, the course delves into the very essence of being a Barbadian and what it signifies for Barbados to be a Republic.

Course Module Structure

The topic begins with the Course Essentials – what you need to know before starting. You must finish this before moving on to the five Course Modules. Each Module must be completed in order.

Citizenship – Module 1

Excellence & Integrity

Citizenship – Module 2

Effective Communication Skills for Everyday Life

Citizenship – Module 3

Developing New Competencies

Citizenship – Module 5

Understanding My National Identity


“My name is Miss Amelia Joseph, and this year was a good year for learning! I found the NTI platform on Instagram when I signed up for the Coca-Cola Growing Together training for small businesses. After successfully completing that training, I was encouraged and inspired to do the Personal Financial Management and Citizenship courses. I am happy to say that I also passed both those courses and received my certificates. I said all of that to say that these courses were very helpful and informative, especially the Citizenship Course where I learned about Integrity, Team Work, Working with Others and what it means to be a true STARR Bajan to the bone. I also learned all about Parliament and how it works and about our judicial system. The Citizenship course made me wonder if I, too, could become a lawyer or maybe a Justice of Peace (JP) or something else miraculous to become a hero in this country. Just being a part of something new and different and also receiving a certificate at the end felt phenomenal. Lastly, I would like to say come aboard and become a STARR Bajan. It’s free, it’s informative, it’s great! Don’t let this opportunity pass you by.”
