The National Accreditation Board in the Ministry of Education will host a one-day Symposium today, to discuss the possibilities and challenges of investing in tertiary level education.
A release from the Ministry says the Accreditation Board is spearheading a drive to mitigate the financial challenges encountered by clients who unwittingly engage the services of unscrupulous academic providers.
The theme for tomorrow’s Symposium is: “Investment in Tertiary Level Education: Its Possibilities and Challenges”.
The Forum will feature a presentation from Dr. Mineva Glasgow, who will speak on: Tertiary Level Education: the Financial Implications for Personal Investments.
A presentation will also be made by Curtis Floyd, a Director of the Accreditation Council of Trinidad and Tobago, who will speak on: Tertiary Level Education: Cross Border Challenges.
And, Chairperson of the National Accreditation Board, Dr. Roslyn Ambrose will also address the participants.
The Symposium is targeting Secondary School Teachers and personnel from Financial Institutions.
Minister of Education Girlyn Miguel is expected to address the opening ceremony, and remarks will also come from Chief Education officer, Lou-ann Gilchrist and retired Educator Joy Browne, one of the Directors of the Accreditation Board.
The Symposium opens at nine this morning at the NIS Conference Room.
