By BBN Staff: The Caribbean Examinations Council® (CXC, the Energy Unit of the Caribbean Community (CARICOM) Secretariat and the Caribbean Centre for Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency (CCREEE) collaborated to further the principles of renewable energy and sustainable development, through future practitioners.
The CARICOM entities hosted a two-part webinar on 11 and 12 June 2020, highlighting key areas in sustainable energy design, to support candidates preparing for the Caribbean Advanced Proficiency Examination® (CAPE®) Green Engineering examinations in July.
The online sessions featured regional lecturers and professionals, who shared insights on content from the syllabus, within the context of current energy trends and practical applications.
These instructive and interactive sessions are part of an ongoing collaboration between the CARICOM Secretariat and CXC, to establish a framework and build capacity for the development and promotion of renewable energy. Efforts to improve Caribbean students’ awareness of, and capacity in sustainable energy issues have also been bolstered by the Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency Technical Assistance (REETA) Programme, a collaboration between the CARICOM Secretariat, CXC and the German international development agency, Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit GmbH (GIZ).
“One of the mandates of the Council is to provide learners from across the Region with access to high quality resources that support teaching, learning and assessment of the different products offered by CXC®. The partnership with the CARICOM Secretariat and the GIZ is very timely and is one of the strategies being implemented to achieve this mandate,” Dr Carol Granston, Pro-Registrar and Deputy CEO of CXC .
CXC noted that it has long recognised that teaching and learning extend beyond the walls of the classroom and has implemented a number of initiatives to provide opportunities for collaboration and sharing of information and resources, through virtual communities of learning.
CARICOM thanks all presenters for sharing their knowledge.
Dr Devon Gardner, Program manager for Energy and Head of energy unit at CARICOM secretariat, lauded the joint initiative by stating, “The Caribbean Community (CARICOM) Secretariat is pleased to have supported this initiative and, with the contribution of regional experts who facilitated, agree that significant benefits would have been derived by students and teachers who participated. CXC® must be commended on its efforts to build capacity among the youth in the Community. Forums such as this are a valuable contribution to the regional energy sector.”
