A two-week workshop aimed at improving students' performance at the early stages got underway in Dominica Monday morning. The workshop which is being held at the Windsor Park Stadium conference room has targeted teachers grades K to 3.
Assistant Chief Education Officer Dr Jeffrey Blaize says the workshop will be aimed at ensuring that the teachers are adequately trained in continuous and professional development. He says teachers’ growth and capacity is paramount to the Ministry of Education.
Meantime, Dr Blaize says as a means of developing sustainability and capacity, the facilitators of the workshop will be local Dominican teachers.
He says although the ministry has seen gains in student performances, there is still room for improvement.
