Closer collaboration within the teaching fraternity in President Ramotar calls for closer collaboration within the teaching fraternity in the Caribbean
Calls for more functional cooperation in the training of teachers across the region came from President Donald Ramotar when he addressed the regional opening ceremony of the Caribbean Union of Teachers 36th Biennial Congress.
The President speaking on Guyana’s experience said that the Government has given its commitment to seeing the development of a cadre of professional teachers.
The Cyril Potter College of Education continues to churn out over 1000 teachers annually, but a significant number would normally seek opportunities overseas, claiming that the salaries received by teachers in Guyana are not competitive.
C.U.T. President Marvin Andall said the Caribbean Union of Teachers continues to remain relevant as it assists local unions in advocating for better salaries and working conditions for teachers.
The opening ceremony was injected with a taste and experience of the Guyanese culture, with the treatment of folk songs and cultural dances.
The conference continues until Friday.
