Ministry of Education, Guyana

The Admin Department deals with the following;

  1. Transcripts
  2. Security for schools and MOE locations
  3. Oversight of MOE Sports Ground (the ground is rented for various occasions)

Conceptually, education policy making and monitoring is differentiated from education implementation. This is a logical position and is one of the main reasons for the current structural formation. However, at another important level, education is too complex and far reaching a process to be left in the hands of a few, albeit competent professionals based at the centre.

There are three Deputy Chief Education Officers, namely, the DCEO (Administration) who has responsibility for the Policy Implementation and Monitoring Unit; the DCEO (Development) who has responsibility for the Monitoring, Evaluating, Reporting and Development Unit, and the Deputy Chief Education Officer (Technical) for the Technical and Vocational Education and Training Unit.
