Eighteen teachers were yesterday awarded certificates after completing three years of training in the field of information technology.

The teachers, who are now referred to as IT administrators, were chosen from across the country.

According to a press release from the Guyana Education Access project (GEAP) as part of its project, which is due to come to an end on December 7, extensive computing facilities have been placed in each of the seven schools that have been or are being built and refurbished.

The release stated that in order to ensure there was sufficient capacity within schools and within Regions Six and Ten to manage these networks, GEAP developed in partnership with the Cyril Potter College of Education and the National Centre for Education Resource Development (NCERD), a course to enhance the skills of a set of teachers who will be responsible for managing the IT networks in these schools.
