Training Programmes in UK for OT Citizens: A Possibility

by Warren Cassell

The prospect for Montserrat students to have easier access to educational opportunities in the United Kingdom looks bright.

A high level meeting to discuss the opening up of training programs in the UK for students from Overseas Territories is scheduled for later this year

This information came earlier this week, from Minister of Education, the Hon Collin Riley while speaking on Radio Montserrat. He says if negotiations at the Joint Ministerial Council Meeting in December are successful, this will become a major development for Montserrat.

“In terms of our relationship with the UK the Dam is about to break. We have to make sure we keep negotiating. We don’t get everything in one cycle but if we have access to the UK universities on the same terms as those who live on the mainland UK, many of our problems with training will be solved,” said Riley.

The Education Minister says he wants every student on Montserrat who has the capability to obtain a professional or general education degree to go and study.  Nonetheless, he says they are unable to send everyone every year because of funding limitations.
