Minister within the Ministry of Education, Nicolette Henry, said that having the right set of staff is the first step towards ensuring that the New Opportunity Corp (NOC) can fulfill its mandate.
In an interview with the Government Information Agency (GINA), Henry said that staff should be properly trained to ensure that the psychological and social aspects of the students’ welfare are taken care of and not only the remedial aspect.
The Ministry of Education, Department of Youth, is taking steps to professionalise the New Opportunity Corps (NOC). To start the process, the services of a juvenile justice officer from the United States of America will be utilized.
