Kingston, Mar 29 (Prensa Latina) In efforts to build the Caribbean”s capacity in the delivery of the Caribbean Advanced Proficiency Examination (CAPE)”s Green Engineering Syllabus, CXC will be hosting a three-day boot camp in Montego Bay, Jamaica.

The boot camp scheduled for April 4-6 will see participants from 13 CARICOM member states and associate members.

The main objective of the boot camp is to familiarise teachers with the resources that have been recently created to support the implementation of the CAPE Green Engineering Syllabus.

Earlier this year, educators from six Caribbean territories – Antigua and Barbuda, Barbados, Belize, Guyana, Jamaica and Trinidad and Tobago – met in Kingston, Jamaica, to develop a range of digital resources at a three-day capacity-building workshop intended to improve their delivery of CAPE Green Engineering syllabus across the region.

CXC is a member of the Capacity Building and Research Thematic Working Group (TWG) of the Caribbean Sustainable Energy Roadmap and Strategy (C-SERMS) Platform, and has been able to benefit from the ongoing technical assistance that is being provided GIZ Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency Technical Assistance (REETA) Programme.

When the boot camp is completed, participants will be able to demonstrate an understanding of the requirements of the syllabus, demonstrate an understanding of how to implement resources in the teaching and learning process, and use a range of resources to support diverse assessment strategies.
