Education Ministry teaming up with BMA


Share post:

THE MINISTRY OF EDUCATION and the Barbados Manufacturers’ Association (BMA) will soon be working together on a number of incubator projects for young entrepreneurs.

Chief Education Officer Karen Best made the disclosure after a tour of the exhibits from the island’s primary and secondary schools at BMEX yesterday morning.

“Very soon the ministry and the Barbados Manufacturers’ Association will be having discussions. We are going to be looking at setting up the incubators along with personnel from the UWI [University of the West Indies] because we have a lot of persons with the skills, but they just need to get that push so that we can see the innovative aspect of our young people coming through,” Best said.

She said the ministry continued to focus on the dual track approach to education because “not all students can be academics”. (YB)
