To discuss and validate the curriculum framework for the proposed Eastern Caribbean Institute of Tourism (ECIT), representatives from all member states of the Organisation of Eastern Caribbean States (OECS) participating in the OECS Network of Excellence for Tourism and Hospitality Training and Education (NETHTE) project assembled in Antigua and Barbuda from February 22 – 23.
The curriculum to be developed by member states for ECIT programs will be centered on the competency based training and education approach.
The curriculum framework is particularly important, as it will serve as a guide to ensure consistency and quality across all member states in the design and development of any programme offered by ECIT’s network of partner institutions.
The OECS member states of Anguilla, Antigua and Barbuda, the British Virgin Islands, Dominica, Grenada, Montserrat, St Kitts and Nevis, Saint Lucia, and St Vincent and the Grenadines, were represented at the workshop in Antigua.
The OECS NETHTE project is being implemented with funding support from the European Union, through its tenth EDF Programme of Economic Integration and Trade of the OECS region.
