By Aaron Humes: The Caribbean Examinations Council (CXC) Registrar and CEO, Dr. Wayne Wesley, has met with the Jamaica National Secondary Students Council (NSSC) to build a closer relationship as part of meetings with similar student bodies across the region to rebuild an inclusive decision-making process.
Student organizations will be engaged on CXC’s plans and given the opportunity to share feedback and concerns.
CXC plans to work through its National Committees, including representatives from Ministries or Departments of Education and the teaching profession, tertiary institutions, teachers’ unions, nationally-recognised subject associations, teacher training colleges, national secondary school student associations or leaders, national parent-teacher associations, chambers of commerce and the general community.
These according to CXC have been inactive in some territories but are required by Article Nine of the Agreement Establishing the Caribbean Examinations Council
CXC will consult with the Committees on areas such as syllabus content, the appointment of Examiners, candidate performance, CXC’s annual report and any other matters relating to examinations.
Dr. Wesley told the Jamaican body that the Council leadership is committed to revitalizing the National Committees and that they are a formal mechanism through which communication and sharing of information can iron out differences and promote inclusivity.
Members of the NSSC Executive shared suggestions and concerns during the meeting, which included the re-deployment of CXC’s mobile app and interactive sessions with students on Instagram. Ree-Anna Robinson, National Public Relations Officer of the NSSC, expressed appreciation to CXC for the opportunity to be involved in the decision-making process and transformation of the organisation.
The Council is preparing for its annual administration of the Caribbean Secondary Education Certificate (CSEC) examinations and Caribbean Advanced Proficiency Examination (CAPE), usually given in the months of May and June.
