(ZIZ News) — The St. Kitts Teachers Union (SKTU) is providing opportunities for teachers to expand their practices through its 2nd Annual Summer Training Workshop.
This is being done through a partnership with the Canadian Teachers Federation.
According to President of the SKTU Ron Dublin-Collins, the workshop aims to enhance the ability of teachers to effectively pass on knowledge to students.
“By focusing our teachers on professional development, we seek to provide teachers with tools to plan for, implement and reflect the high quality development that introduces, models and encourages in the classroom This partnership between the St. Kitts Teachers Union and the Canadian Teachers Federation seeks to empower our teachers so that we can do more and our development partnership will provide remarkable benefits this year to our teachers and our learners,” he said.
CTF’s Team Leader Deidre Buckley-McKie reaffirmed the Canadian Federation of Teachers’ commitment to help provide quality education.
“We do recognise that you have made a personal choice to join us to learn how to better support the children of the Federation of St. Kitts and Nevis. We are ready to work with you and we are eager to begin this professional development,” she said.
“The four workshops offered during the Summer Institute have been tailored to develop skills and competencies to support each and every member in your classrooms. I can assure you that we will work hard along with our co-teachers to offer the best professional development possible. Together we will work toward the common goal of quality education for all students,” she added.
The two week workshop was officially opened on Monday with the symbolic ringing of the bell by SKTU’s General Secretary Emeritus Carlene Henry-Morton.
