As promised we made good on our commitment to strengthening one of the core components of the system, teacher training:

  1. The Cyril Potter College of Education has had its largest intake of, approximately 751 trainees, in 2015. The technical teacher training programme has commenced in collaboration with GTI.
  2. The Mentorship and Induction programme for new teachers has been embedded in the system with widespread and consistent monitoring being done in all Regions.
  3. Teacher training has been expanded to Kwakwani, Charity and Mahdia to ensure under-qualified and untrained teachers receive the necessary capacity building. Distance education training programmes continue in Regions 1 and 9 as well as the other satellite centres across the country.
  4. The Guyana Improving Teacher Education Project came to an end in 2015 with the significant strategic objectives being attained.
