The OECS Commission, Caribbean Development Bank and CARICOM Secretariat invite your media house to virtually cover the launch of 'Let's REAP!' on Wednesday, September 28 at 11AM (AST).
COVID-related school closures in the Caribbean affected approximately 1.7 million children across 21 countries, disproportionately impacting marginalised and vulnerable students.
In July 2021, the Caribbean Development Bank, CARICOM Secretariat and OECS Commission, developed the Learning Recovery and Enhancement Programme (Let’s REAP!) to provide schools leaders and teachers across the region with a roadmap to both bridge the learning gaps that have emerged or worsened due to COVID-19 and accelerate learning outcomes for all students, while improving inclusion.
The first cohort of 3000 educators will commence training in October 2022.
