35 percent increase in CFBC Enrollment

A government release quotes the Minister of Education, Nigel Carty, as saying that he was advised by college officials that since the programme has been in place enrollment has increased by approximately 35 percent.

College officials also reveal that there has also been a significant increase in persons taking science, language and mathematics courses.

The new program called REACH, Recognising Everyone’s Ability to Climb Higher, has been a catalyst for some persons leaving secondary school to pursue post-secondary level education and has resulted in a noteworthy increase in the enrollment, said the release.  

The minister said that government found that it was important to reduce the kinds of challenges that young people had as they sought to make the important decisions to further their education.

Minister Carty stated, “One of them was the fact that parents or guardians might not have been in the position to give the requisite support to give the student the comfort to move into the Clarence Fitzroy Bryant College (CFBC), the Advanced Vocational Education Centre (AVEC) or the Nevis Sixth Form College. What we have done with the REACH programme is to remove that hurdle by providing the requisite funds to support the child throughout his or her two years at the college of their choice.”

The Minister said that the progress the Federation has made, as an independent nation, is largely due to the country’s advancements in education. As such, there are implications for the future.

The new school year at the CFBC began on 18th August.
