The St Vincent and the Grenadines Teachers’ Union, in collaboration with the Canadian Teachers’ Federation and the Ministry of Education, will conduct its two-week Summer Institute workshops for educators from July 14 to 25, 2014.{{more}}

These workshops will provide educators with the skills and confidence to reach every student with real, relevant differentiation, in order to equip students for 21st century success, to engage students with instructional technology, and to prepare students for Curriculum Standards success! They will also acquire the confidence and competence to successfully train fellow educators. The theme for the Summer Institute 2014 is “Inclusion: An Opportunity for All.”

The school stewards from across the country will also engage in two weeks of training in Labour Relations. These workshops will focus on the functions and structures of SVGTU, the role and duties of a school steward at the workplace, and the mechanisms of a grievance procedure.

All workshops will take place at the St Vincent Girls’ High School and will begin at 8:30 a.m.
