Approximately 15,000 educators from the Caribbean Community (CARICOM) are set to benefit from professional development training specially designed for them to assist students in overcoming the learning losses occasioned by the Covid-19 pandemic.
The training is part of the Learning Recovery and Enhancement Programme, known as Let’s REAP.
This programme has been developed collaboratively among the CARICOM Secretariat, the Caribbean Development Bank (CDB) and the Organization of Eastern Caribbean States (OECS). The programme was launched in July 2021.
The expected outcomes of Let’s REAP are to increase equitable access to quality education and training, enhance learning outcomes for students and increase their capacity to meet grade level expectations.
