As part of ongoing teacher education efforts, educators from across the Eastern Caribbean will gather in St. Lucia from 3rd to 4th April, 2018 for a major regional teacher education conference under the theme:  “One Voice in Re-Engineering OECS Teacher Education.”
The press briefing aims at sensitizing the media on the outcomes of the conference

WHAT
The conference seeks to bring together regional leaders in education to focus on a collaborative approach to the strengthening of the education of teachers. 

The conference will bring to the fore recent research conducted on teacher education in the region, their implications and recommendations, programme specific efforts managed by the Education Development Management Unit in response to the OESS as it relates to teacher education and explore how regional leaders might support teachers and pre-service teachers in functioning as highly skilled professionals.

About The Organisation of Eastern Caribbean States

Back to www.oecs.int

The Organisation of Eastern Caribbean States (OECS) is an International Organisation dedicated to economic harmonisation and integration, protection of human and legal rights, and the encouragement of good governance among independent and non-independent countries in the Eastern Caribbean. The OECS came into being on June 18th 1981, when seven Eastern Caribbean countries signed a treaty agreeing to cooperate with each other while promoting unity and solidarity among its Members. The Treaty became known as the Treaty of Basseterre, so named in honour of the capital city of St. Kitts and Nevis where it was signed. The OECS today, currently has ten members, spread across the Eastern Caribbean comprising Antigua and Barbuda, Commonwealth of Dominica, Grenada, Montserrat, St. Kitts and Nevis, Saint Lucia, St Vincent and The Grenadines, British Virgin Islands, Anguilla and Martinique.
