Contributed Michelle McIntyre Plummer, quality assurance manager, NCB Corporate Learning Campus, makes a point to her distinguished guests at the Book Merchant Limited’s Prime Mathematics Teacher Training Programme.
Contributed Some 700 teachers were trained in the summer under the Book Merchant Limited’s Prime Mathematics Teacher Training Programme held at the Shortwood Teacher’s College, St Andrew. In an effort to make the training experience of Scholastic’s Prime Mathematics users more enjoyable and engaging, the Book Merchant Limited invited users to its four-day summer training academy this year. To offset cost, the NCB Foundation donated some $250,000 towards the programme and even participated in a panel discussion after the opening ceremony alongside representatives from the Ministry of Education, the Ministry of Science and Technology and other educators. An area at the Shortwood Teacher’s College was transformed into training and display room as teachers and others were invited to the event.
