By Zoila Palma Gonzalez:  Today, STEM U Foundation, in collaboration with St. Ignatius High School (SIHS) officially launched its premier Welding & NDT (Non-Destructive Testing) vocational program in Belize.

During the launch, Principal of Independence High School, Omar Longsworth commended his colleague, Principal of St. Ignatius High, Vanessa Neal for transforming the institution and introducing the groundbreaking Welding and NDT program.

Longsworth also commended the Ministry of Education, Culture, Science and Technology and Minister of State Dr. Louis Zabaneh for championing competency- based education in Belize.

“We are transforming our institutions because when students graduate from secondary schools, they should also have a skill. This is part of the education system and I commend Dr. Zabaneh for championing competency-based education in Belize and using policy making to ensure it happens. This is the way to go. The concept is to ensure that all students move forward, ensure that teachers can help students move forward and there is no space for failure,” Longsworth said.

Longsworth also expressed gratitude to Founder of the NDE Institute, Jarrus Mitchell who has partnered with Saint Ignatius High School to establish this program for Belizean students and reiterated the need for the successful expansion of the program in schools across Belize.

He further expounded on the innovative ideas including the implementation of Street Law in the classroom, also an initiative introduced by the Principal of St. Ignatius High.

Longsworth noted that welding skills are needed in Belize and the focus is for students to be able to create their own employment.

The Ministry of Education continues to strive for focus on Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math (STEAM) education.
