Inducted Teachers

A number of teachers from the six primary schools and the Albena Lake- Hodge Comprehensive School benefited from an Induction programme that was conducted by the Department of Public Administration of the Anguilla Public Service.
The two half-day sessions were held on March 23, 2015 and March 24, 2015. The sessions took place at the Teachers’ Resource Centre from 9:00 a.m. to 12 noon both days.
The programme is an annual ‘information-sharing’ event which is organized primarily to familiarize teachers with the Anguilla Public Service, its operations, policies and procedures. The exercise is an opportune time to highlight some of the specific processes and guidelines which govern the employment of the teachers in the Anguilla Public Service.
During the programme, the Honourable Deputy Governor seized the opportunity to explain to the teachers How Government Works. He also shared with them some of the goals of the Anguilla Public Service and advised them that even though policy development was promoted by the Permanent Secretaries and other senior officers, they have the responsibility to positively affect policy development and implementation, even from that level.
In her presentation, Mrs Angelina Carty discussed with the teachers the Dignity and Worth in the Role of a Teacher/Educator. She reminded them that it was a privilege to be involved in the education of the next generation; potential leaders of Anguilla. Additionally, Mrs Carty challenged the group of teachers to ‘be a source of knowledge, support and inspiration (to their students) and to exercise understanding and professionalism despite obstacles of difference and difficulties’.
Other presentations included topics such as Policies, Rules and Regulations in the Anguilla Public Service, Who is Who in the Service, Expectations of Teachers, Communicating with Parents and Teachers, Social Security and You, Compensation and Benefits, Pensions, Recruitment and Professionalism in the Workplace.
Some of the teachers took the opportunity to share their views on issues that impact them individually and collectively – as a group of educators. They were encouraged to work hard and give 100% at all times. Teachers, by nature of the profession, are expected to possess and maintain high standards.
The facilitators for the sessions were Mr Stanley Reid, Honourable Deputy Governor, Mrs Kathleen Rogers, Permanent Secretary, Public Administration, Mrs Lana Horsford-Harrigan, Director, Human Resource Management, Mrs C Charmaine Rogers and Mrs Ornette Edwards-Gumbs, Deputy Directors, Human Resource Management, Miss Sherise Brooks, Human Resource Management Officer,
Ms Rosanna Browne, Representative from Social Security, Mrs Charissa-Ann Busby, Administrator, Public Service Pension Fund, Mrs Emma Ferguson from the Anguilla Teachers’ Union and Mrs Angelina Carty.
