them.” Training, he said, will take place at all levels.
“We have been able to take this training regime forward due to substantial financial support from the Republic of China on Taiwan, ROC.
He said that for instance there is training for Substitute Teachers where they would be exposed to proper training as it pertains to classroom control and management, work preparation and compilation.
“We also have training for Principals athat would assist them in becoming better managers and leaders,” remarked Mr. Blake.
The Senior Education Officer went on to highlight that there was training for Education Officers and Guidance Counselors that would help them to work more closer with the school in helping to further enhance the education system.
He said of particular interest to the ROC was the training of young men and women who are leaving school shortly, in the field of Agriculture.
“Each high school has been asked to identify four students who are interested in Agriculture and they in turn will be trained, given finance, supplies and even land to do undertake their projects,” stated Mr. Blake.
Agriculture, he said is significant for our survival, the single lone industry that any country can survive from.
The Senior Education Officer pointed out that some aspects of the training would be done on a single basis, while other aspects would be continuous or as refresher courses.
He said that facilitators for these training sessions will be drawn from Educators who are active as well as those who have retired from the service.
Mr. Blake concluded by expressing his excitement about the training sessions, remarking that it would greatly enhance the education system that we already have and that all the training will be designed to impact student experiences positively.
