The Ministry of Education and Youth has announced another leg of the Train the Teachers Initiative, under the Coding in Schools Programme.
This phase, which starts on August 22 and lasts for five weeks, is intended to involve hundreds of instructors of computer science and information technology (IT).
Both synchronous and asynchronous training modalities will be used for the course’s administration.
Prime Minister Andrew Holness introduced the Coding in Schools initiative in November of last year.
Under the program, around 15,000 teachers are anticipated to receive training to teach the curriculum.
In the meantime, 400,000 public school kids in Jamaica’s first through thirteenth grades will gain something.
