Although many programmes have been engaged with a view to preparing youths for the world of work, the Ministry of Education is yet working towards introducing a skills for life programme in the very near future.According to Education Minister, Shaik Baksh,Brett Favre Vikings Jersey, the programme which is deemed as vital will be complementary to the Behavioural Communication Certificate Programme (BCCP) which was initiated at some schools with much success.The Minister pointed out that the BCCP, which came on stream some four years ago, compares with a Caribbean programme called the Caribbean Certificate of Secondary Level Competency (CCSLC).He said that students at the end of the third year in the secondary school system can take this programme.He added that some Caricom countries, with the exception of Guyana,St. Louis Cardinals Randal Grichuk Jersey, have included the programme in their systems.“Guyana is a bit hesitant at this point because we feel that the BCCP is a comparable programme.We will enter into discussions with the Caribbean Examination Council (CXC) and to a large extent the CCSLC is modelled after the BCCP.”The Minister emphasised that Guyana may have pioneered the technical and vocational programme, even as he noted that there are some challenges that the Ministry faces with the continuance of the programme.According to the Minister, the sector does not have a sufficient quota of qualified teaching staff in either the technical or vocational aspects,Michael Carrick Jersey UK, adding that “we are moving towards training more and more people.”He pointed out that, while there is a technical teachers’ training programme at the Government Technical Institute, only about 12 teachers graduate annually.For this reason, he said that the Ministry is prepared to open another centre in New Amsterdam with a view to doubling or even tripling the number of teachers that are trained in the system.“A task team was set up and has already reported. They have had discussions with the CPCE and the technical institutions, and we are hoping within a matter of a few months we will have a large intake of persons to take the technical teachers’ trained certificate.”Additionally,Ander Herrera Jersey UK, the Minister said that the plans are apace to upgrade the Carnegie School of Home Economics. He noted that a new board has already been appointed at the school, even as he added that the Ministry intends to merge the Carnegie School with the Craft Institute and the Kuru Kuru Cooperative College.This move, according to the Minister, will be engaged during the course of this year.According to the Minister, the Ministry at the moment has in place, in terms of technical and vocational education, a vibrant technical and vocational council headed by a former Dean of the Faculty of Technology of the University of Guyana and a former Deputy Chief Education Officer,Custom Chelsea Jersey UK, Technical Education.The Minister said that the body is solidly made up of persons to address the question of the Caribbean vocational qualifications,Mike Singletary Bears Jersey, which is the qualification standardising technical education across the region.
