 2019 New Teachers Orientation

The latest cohort of teachers were welcomed to the Ministry of Education during an orientation exercise, held at the Uriah McPhee Primary School, on Wednesday August, 21, 2019. The two day workshop, which will conclude on Thursday August, 22, will allow the new educators to participate in sessions focused on a variety of areas, including best practices in the classroom, curriculum development, management, protocol, financial and health concerns. Delivering the keynote address was the Minister of Education Jeffrey Lloyd, who told the educators that the Ministry has embarked upon a number of new initiatives, to ensure that students are equipped with the tools to graduate and compete on a global scale. One of the strategies he highlighted was the integration of technology in the teaching learning process. He said a priority initiative at the Ministry of Education is to create a digital evolution, by creating tech smart schools throughout the country. The aim is to ensure that all students are exposed to the latest educational tools and be able to reap the rewards of having access to distance education.
