The Ministry of Education is on a mission to upgrade the skills of teachers within the country’s education system.
According to the country’s Education Minister Mr. Michael Browne four years ago the ministry embarked on a programme to upgrade the skills of teachers in the area of special education.
He pointed out that to this end, a number of teachers were sent off, to the Southern Caribbean University to pursue degrees .
“we recognized that there was a point in time when the previous administration did voluntary separation and any organization that does voluntary separation, the people who are going to leave are those who are most marketable and the ones who are most marketable are those with the most skills,”the minister said
The Antigua and Barbuda Education Minister added that since taking up the Education Ministry he has been rebuilding the education system, by allowing teachers to upgrade their skills.
