The month of March was an extremely busy one for CXC’s stakeholder engagement programme. During March, teams from CXC met with stakeholders in Turks and Caicos, Cayman Islands, Grenada and Guyana.
Engagements were held with parents, third form students, the private sector, technical staff in the ministries of education, private educational institutions, ministers of education and in the case of Grenada, the Prime Minister.
While all the meetings were important, two highlights from March include a very exciting and interactive meeting with 30 private educational institutions in Guyana on 15 March. The institutions expressed gratitude for the opportunity to interact directly with CXC and were very eager to collaborate with CXC on several of the initiatives targeting private institutions including the national private institutions educational fair.
A second highlight was the courtesy call on Dr. The Right Honourable Keith Mitchell, Prime Minister of Grenada. Prime Minister Mitchell indicated that he is happy with the work that CXC is doing and paid tribute to CXC’s contribution to education and regional human resource development. The Prime Minister also discussed the opening of the Grand Bacolet Youth Rehabilitation Centre, the island’s first juvenile rehabilitation centre. CXC has agreed to partner with the Government of Grenada to ensure that participants of this programme can be certified in their area of interest.
Stakeholder meetings will continue in April with visits to St Kitts and Nevis and Montserrat during the week of 4- 8 April.
