As part of ongoing teacher education efforts, educators from across the Eastern Caribbean will gather in St. Lucia from 3rd to 4th April, 2018 for a major regional teacher education conference under the theme: “One Voice in Re-Engineering OECS Teacher Education.” The conference, organized by the Education Development Management Unit of the OECS Commission, is supported by the United States Government. It recognizes professional development as a critical issue affecting the Eastern Caribbean where untrained or under-trained teachers at the primary school level ranges account for 11 percent to 38 percent of the teaching force. The OECS Commission and partners recognize that improved teacher quality is essential to addressing this challenge. Conference participants will identify methods for strengthening teacher education and improving teachers’ professional development in order to ultimately impact the quality of teaching and learning throughout the OECS
