Teacher vetting process moving smoothly

Minister of Education Jerome Fitzgerald says even with the large number of teachers to be vetted before the 2016-2017 school year the process is currently moving smoothly.

Every year teachers within the country must go through a process before being allowed to educate the country’s developing minds.

With help from the Royal Bahamas Police Force (RBPF) Mr. Fitzgerald says the process would not hold up the opening of schools come September.

“We’ve been working closely with the police department and we have now sent them names from March/April we’ve tried to pre-vet them so once we accept them the vetting is done ” he said

“I hope this year that won’t be a hold up and we’ve been working very closely on coordinating with the public service so it’s a lot of people to process in a short space of time but I feel a lot more comfortable with the process and that part of it.”

The minister says he is also pleased with the number of math and music teachers coming out the College of The Bahamas (COB) as of late.

He noted that without issue there has been a need to bring in foreign aid for the more specialties technical and science areas but according to the minister there have been no problems with this.
