Education Minister, Senator Ruel Reid, is praising the Early Childhood Commission, ECC, for its implementation of a programme designed to improve the quality of teachers in the sector.
The Zone Lead Teacher Programme was launched yesterday by the ECC.
More than 11,000 teachers will benefit from peer to peer training and mentorship, to improve the quality of the services within the sector.
Minster Reid says the programme, which he describes as a ‘train the trainer’ initiative, will strengthen the foundations of the country’s education system.
He says, for this reason, it’s important to invest in improving the grade of the teachers in the early childhood sector.
