KINGSTON, Jamaica — On Sunday, November 3 some 1000 East Rural St Andrew constituents will graduate from the joint 3-2-1 Education Plan with certification from the National Council on Technical and Vocational Education and Training (NCTVET) according to Member of Parliament for the constituency, Damion Crawford.
“On Sunday, 1000 residents from East Rural St Andrew will be graduating from Diageo’s Learning for Life programme as part of the 3-2-1 project,” Crawford said in the constituency's newsletter released Thursday.
“This was also done in conjunction with the Bars to Go Group of Companies. I am immensely proud of the students and what this means for their job prospects and socio-economic empowerment.”
The newsletter also said that this cohort is the first set of constituents who have benefited from the joint Diageo project, which took on a J$2 million price tag.
The ambitious 3-2-1 Education Plan was launched in December 2011 and is aimed at ensuring that after five years, there are three CXC subjects per household, and 10 years thereafter two A-Levels per household, which is to be followed another five years later with one degree per household in the East Rural constituency.
The education programme is also said to include a Mathematics camp, Grade 4 literacy, homework centres, Internet cafes and night schools for adults who wish to take CXC exams.
