The Education Planning Department is entrusted with the responsibility to ensure the efficient delivery of sustainable and quality education throughout the education system, from preschools through to tertiary-level institutions.
Functions of the Education Planning Department
Our services include, but are not limited to:
The EPAC (Education Planners Advisory Committee) was formed in November 2007.
The Members of the original EPAC Committee are - Ms. Jennifer Palmer Crawford, Ms. Clarice Cotton, Mrs. Jeanette Maitland, Mrs Carlene Morton, Mr. Freddy Knight, Mr. Calwyn Morton, Mr. Ian Gregory Morson, Mr. Steve Laplace and Mr. Quinton Morton.
"The committee was deemed necessary to assist in enhancing our education system ... The committee brings together individuals with varied experiences and a passion to enhance the education process.”
- detailed planning for the provision of accommodation needs at each level of the education system
- annual participation in budget preparation for each sector of the education system
- fashioning proposals for capital investment
- developing systems and procedures for effective delivery of school programs
- engagement in the formulation of policies/initiatives
- assessing and prioritizing the training needs of the education system
- conducting research as a means of improving the quality of education and teacher training in the education system where necessary.
Research supports our belief that the process of education is most effective and efficient when all stakeholders are involved: When the community (Church, Private sector Parents, Teachers, Youths, Adults) are involved they are more likely to embrace and support our efforts at the Ministry of Education.
Mr. Quinton Morton is the Director of Education Planning or the Education Planner.
