CARICOM Skilled Workers Program launched with secondary school teacher attachments

By Aaron Humes: Belize is to benefit from the arrival of teachers from other CARICOM [Caribbean Community] countries following the launch of a CARICOM Skilled Workers Program on Monday.

The Skilled Workers Program, which is supported by the European Union, is intended to provide opportunities for the learning of best practices in the administration of the regimes of the CARICOM Single Market and Economy (CSME). It is hoped there will be the development of practical skills through the work-related attachments to assist Member States to implement the CSME and decisions of the Organs and Bodies of the Community. The program is also intended to create effective advocates for CARICOM integration through the exposure given to participants. Thus, the targeted groups have been selected for the critical role they can play in implementing and sustaining training and advocacy at the national level in respect of the CSME, in particular, the Free Movement of CARICOM skilled nationals.

The launch of the program will coincide with the component for Secondary School Teachers. Nineteen CARICOM teachers are being placed on two-week attachments to Secondary Schools in Barbados, Belize, Guyana, St. Kitts and Nevis, and Trinidad and Tobago during the period 6-17 March 2023.

Other components of the Skilled Workers Programme which will be rolled out later this year involve, attachments to the CARICOM Secretariat for CARICOM Youth Ambassadors; attachments to other CARICOM Member States for Border Control Officers, and National CSME Focal Points.
