Using digital publishing to improve dissemination of education statistics

OECS Media Statement

Training to use digital platforms to improve the dissemination of data continues to be a priority within the OECS region.

Education statisticians in Grenada were the latest to receive training from the OECS Commission’s Statistical Services Unit (SSU) and Educational Development Management Unit (EDMU) on best practices for the dissemination of national education data.

The four-day workshop, held from March 25 to 28 2019, assisted Grenada’s education statisticians to digitise their national education statistical digest. Data covered the pre-school, primary, secondary, tertiary and technical and vocational (TVET) levels for the academic year 2016-17.

Minister of Education, Hon. Emmalin Pierre; and Education Permanent Secretary, Mr. Kevin Andall visited the sessions and assured the Commission's delegation and the trainees of their continued support.

The training was funded by the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF) and was facilitated by Ms. Afric Abiola Sandiford, Information Management Officer in the SSU; Mr. Keith Thomas, Education Planner in St. Vincent and the Grenadines' Ministry of Education; with assistance from Ms. Molly Okuneff, Education Programme Specialist in the EDMU.

To date, the Ministry of Education in St. Vincent and the Grenadines has published two digital national digests, while Saint Lucia has published one. St. Kitts and Nevis and Grenada are on track to release their national digest in the coming months.

The roll out of training to digitise the national education statistics digest continues in the Member States.

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 eleven 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, Martinique and Guadeloupe.
