Teachers to benefit from online training


Share post:

Hundreds of teachers will be better trained to handle virtual learning when the Michaelmas school term begins next week.

Minister of Education Santia Bradshaw said this yesterday during the launch of the teacher training online workshop on Digital Education And Distance Learning Pedagogies In The Caribbean.

The workshop was funded by the Inter-American Development Bank and training facilitated by Tampere University of Applied Sciences in Finland.

“Despite the challenging environment, my Government remains committed to educational reform and the provision of quality education. I am confident that the participating educators will be better able to manage the available technologies to offer better quality education to all of our students. As we emerge from this pandemic, we will be stronger, more resilient and capable of adapting to the ‘vagaries’ of the 21st century to create sustainable development,” Bradshaw said. (TG)
