Lecturers from the Cyril Potter College of Education and the School of Education and Humanities, University of Guyana, participate in Intensive Coaching sessions at CPCE

The Ministry of Education (MOE), through the Guyana Improving Teacher Education Project (GITEP), today commenced the first of a series of intensive coaching focus group workshops aimed at further strengthening the quality of teacher educators at the Cyril Potter College of Education (CPCE) and the School of Education and Humanities (SEH), University of Guyana (UG).

Today’s session was held at the CPCE auditorium and was attended by teacher educators from CPCE and its satellite centers countrywide, as well as, lecturers from the SEH, UG, both from the Turkeyen and Tain campuses.

“We have some consultants from the Mount Saint Vincent University, Canada, here to commence the first in a series of intensive coaching workshops in four subject areas which are Mathematics, Literacy, Science and Special Needs Education.

This series of intensive coaching will serve to significantly improve teacher performance in their respective subject areas, which will ultimately lead to improved instructional effectiveness,” Project Coordinator, Mr. Tota Mangar stated.

GITEP is a project funded by The World Bank in collaboration with Government of Guyana, and Commonwealth of Learning. It focuses on three main components; namely:

  1. Improving the Quality and Efficiency of Teacher Education Delivery;
  2. Building Human Resources and Capacity for more Effective Teaching and Learning; and
  3. Communication, Project Management and Monitoring and Evaluation.

GITEP commenced in 2011 and concludes mid 2015.
