Teachers train in Business Competitiveness

In preparation meanwhile, Four of the island’s teachers were among a group of 91 Eastern Caribbean Currency Union (ECCU) teachers and youth officers who received training in Business Competitiveness.

The teachers, who were from the Montserrat Secondary School (MSS) and the Montserrat Community College (MCC) were exposed to information designed to increase their knowledge and understanding of business competitiveness during a workshop hosted by the Eastern Caribbean Central Bank (ECCB) on September 24th.

According to the ECCB the interactive workshop was scheduled to usher in the activities for Financial Information Month 2014 (FIM).

The workshop, which particularly targeted teachers of business, economics, accounts and related subjects, was expected to build capacity among secondary school teachers whereby they could help sharpen the skills of their students in the areas of entrepreneurship and value creation opportunities.

The ECCB’s Corporate Relations Department Adviser, Sybil Welsh, facilitated the workshop which covered key areas such as: Value based pricing and purchasing; Business competitiveness checklist; Competitive advantage and Development of a competitive business idea.
