Financial training culminates with multiple fairs at ITVET

The two-day training is interactive and includes presentations from various institutions. Deputy Chief Education Officer, Carol Babb, spoke of how the continuous work of the international organization has led up to three fairs at the ITVET Compound.

“First it started with four schools and then we’ve expanded to all Belize City primary schools and all the high schools on the south side of Belize City. We are having training with educators across the country so that they can go back and train their teachers, parents and students.  We have personnel from PricewaterhouseCoopers; you know these people are accountants—they are trained in money management and budgeting and they are training with our local educators. So we are training forty educators, we are training adults and continuing students; we are also training ITVET educators. And along with that, we also have the high school challenge getting ready for tomorrow. The students are being mentored by PWC personnel and also by our own local business persons. Tomorrow is the Belize Community Fair where we will have the finals for the high school challenge where the student will compete for the best solution to waste management. And we will also have a Vendor’s Fair where different organizations such as health, education, banks and other organizations will be displaying their resources. We will also have the Business Showcase where the primary schools will show their best products—it has to be original, it has to be creative; they must brand it and they must know how to promote it as well.”


While the training component of the program concluded today, on Wednesday, a High School Innovation Challenge will be held also at the ITVET.
