MOE To automate several other services for the public
Riding high on the success of its Online Staff Letter Application System, the Ministry of Education is not stopping there, but is moving swiftly to offer a similar service for other transactions done by teachers and members of the public.
This assurance came from Dr. the Honourable Lovell Francis, Minister of State in the Ministry of Education during his address on Friday 8th February, 2019 at the Presbyterian Primary Schools’ Board of Education Teachers Convention at the Southern Academy for the Performing Arts (SAPA), San Fernando. He said the success experienced has led to other ideas.
“We are going to automate all transfers, teachers and students we are going to automate all paper work. The idea of coming to the Ministry to do these mundane things which used to take days or weeks will now be cut down to hours. Think about the teaching time that would have been lost, think of the time for productivity that would no longer be squandered. Think of the frightening word called efficiency” he said.
Dr. Francis assured the hundreds of teachers and stakeholders gathered that the Ministry of Education has gone through a significant transformation over the past few years. He said officials of the Ministry of Education continue to work tirelessly to improve every aspect of the Education system.
Among those in attendance were His Worship the Mayor Junia Regrello, Mayor of San Fernando and Moderator of the Synod of the Presbyterian Church of Trinidad and Tobago, the Right Reverend Annabell Lalla - Ramkelawan.
The Presbyterian Primary Schools’ Board of Education Annual Teachers Convention was held under the theme “Keeping The Passion.”
