Eighteen lecturers from the T.A Marryshow Community College (TAMCC), School of Applied Arts and Technology recently received training in Competency-Based Education and Training (CBET) methodology.
The training was part of an ongoing Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) signed in 2017 between the National Training Agency (NTA) and the T.A Marryshow Community College to build capacity at the institution to implement C/NVQ programmes.
The training was facilitated during the month of July by the Quality Assurance and Standard and Planning Coordinators using the Training and Development CVQ level 4 occupational standard.
The instructors have completed the classroom component of the training and are currently building their portfolios and preparing for assessment.
Participants were high in praise for the facilitators who they say delivered an excellent and well organised training which emphasized competency building and skills.
The lecturers say they will incorporate the new methods and learning styles into their classroom instruction to allow students to produce their own knowledge, make sure students understand what’s being taught and engage interactively.
