The Government of Belize (GOBZ) has received financing from the Caribbean Development Bank (CDB) in an amount equivalent to US$2,000,000 towards the cost of the Education Sector Reform Project and intends to apply a portion of the proceeds of this financing to eligible payments under contracts procured under this project. Payments by CDB will be made only at the request of GOBZ and upon approval by CDB, and will be subject in all respects to the terms and conditions of the Financing Agreement. The Financing Agreement prohibits withdrawal from the financing account for the purpose of any payment to persons or entities, or for any import of goods, if such payment or import, to the knowledge of CDB, is prohibited by a decision of the United Nations Security Council taken under Chapter VII of the Charter of the United Nations. No party other than GOBZ shall derive any rights from the Financing Agreement or have any claim to the proceeds of the Financing.
Improving access, quality and governance of education in Belize
GOVERNMENT OF BELIZE MINISTRY OF EDUCATION,YOUTH AND SPORTS
To be implemented in the five school years 2011/2 to 2015/16
I think most people will agree with me that when it comes to the potential for improving our individual and collective lives, for forming better persons and better communities, for contributing to social and economic development there are no greater expectations of any other sector than of the education sector. Indeed it is for this reason that governments across the world invest heavily in education. In Belize, where we invest in excess of 25% of our national budget in the education sector, we are certainly no exception to this rule. Compared to Costa Rica, Cuba and Barbados, Belize is the biggest spender on education well above the international FTI benchmark of 20% of recurrent budget and remaining constant at around 6.5% of GDP over the last few years. Therefore, we are certainly at the high end of the education investment scale when we consider our education budget as a proportion of our economy. This signals the priority that the Government of Belize continues to give to the education sector.
Attention:Managing authorities of all educational institutions at the pre-primary, primary, secondary, and Technical and Vocational Education Training sectors
Persons who are offered employment as teachers under any school management
From: Chairman, Belize Teaching Service Commission
It is imperative to note that for the school year 2012 – 2013, all new teachers recruited for employment MUST hold a valid Licence to Teach. The attention of prospective teachers is also called to this announcement. This request is in reference to Section 29 (1) of the Education and Training Act, 2010, which mandates that “A person who does not possess a valid license to teach shall not be employed as a teacher.”
It is my hope that when you visit this site, you will learn more about the services our Ministry provides, the projects we are engaged in and the plans we have for the future growth and development of Belize's education system.
