“Excellent” was the single adjective used by Ms Grace Alleyne to describe the performances of candidates at the inaugural sitting of the Caribbean Certificate of Secondary Level Competence (CCSLC) examination.Alleyne is the Coordinator of the programme offered through the Adult Education Association (AEA). According to her, 10 candidates participated in the programme in June, 2015.This is the first year that the programme, which is administered by the Caribbean Examination Council (CXC), was undertaken by local candidates with AEA being one of the few CXC-certified institutions through which it was offered.AEA, as well as the other institutions offering CCSLC, had mere months to prepare for the examination since classes in this regard started last December.The programme, which is appropriately dubbed “A Second Chance”, is one that is designed to give persons a “second chance” at obtaining CSEC equivalent qualifications aimed at ensuring that they are suitably qualified for the world of work.The ‘Second Chance’ programme, Alleyne said, has for some time been offered in other CXC territories, and is premised on CXC’s recognition that some of the youths in the Caribbean are not able to benefit from the formal education structure.An analysis of the 2015 CCSLC results offered through AEA reflects laudable results which translate to 71 percent of the grades obtained being at the ‘Master’ level while the remaining 29 percent of the candidates secured ‘Competent’ grades.The ‘Master’ level, according to Alleyne, means that candidates were able to secure between 75 per cent and 100 percent while ‘Competent’ means that candidates gained between 50 per cent and 74 percent. Another level of performance is ‘Developing Competent’ (0-49 percent) but none of the AEA candidates fell into that category.Latoya Zephyr was also among the candidates to participate in the inaugural sitting of CCSLC.Best performing CCSLC candidate produced by AEA, Altiya Swan.The candidates, who participated at the 2015 examination, were drawn from the AEA’s day and evening classes and, according to Alleyne, the subjects written were Integrated Science, Social Studies, Mathematics and English.Among the top performers are Altiya Swan who received ‘Master’ grades for Mathematics, English Language, Integrated Science and Social Studies and Brandon Singh who received ‘Master’ grades for English Language, Integrated Science and Social Studies.While Swan and Singh attended day classes, Latoya Zephyr was among the AEA students who took advantage of evening classes. She, like Singh secured ‘Master’ grades in Integrated Science,Cheap NHL Jerseys, English Language and Social Studies.According to Alleyne, all of the candidates who wrote English Language received ‘Master’ grades while 83 percent of those who wrote Integrated Science received a ‘Master’ grade.She said that “there are many people who need a chance to succeed. These may include those who did not do well at the CSEC examinations and those who for various reasons were unable to write the CSEC examination.”“These persons must not be ignored or feel left out. There is not only one path to success. Many persons can (belatedly) attain success just as their peers who were able to take quantum leaps ahead of them,” asserted the Coordinator.As she insisted that there is hope, Alleyne noted that AEA provides opportunities for success through the provision of an educational opportunity, though the CCSLC that is tailored specifically to cater to those who need a second chance to succeed. Alleyne, moreover, disclosed that persons can be afforded another level of certification that can not only allow for them to gain knowledge, but also the competence and effective qualities to enter the work force and be of value to their respective organisations.According to CXC, the CCSLC handbook is structured to represent the integration of knowledge, competencies and effective qualities that are critical to the dynamics of lifelong learning, global competitiveness and sustainable development in the region as the programme responds to the changing demand of education.The achievement of the CCSLC certification will, at least, show that the candidates have acquired competencies such as: oral and written communication, mathematics literacy,China NFL Jerseys, problem solving, critical thinking, informed decision making, managing of emotions, working in groups, managing diversity and change, handling conflicts, developing a positive self-concept and social and citizenship skills.These competencies were strategically incorporated into the CCSLC programme based on the advice of experts.Moreover, it is the view of Alleyne that “it would be advantageous to our country if this programme is embraced by the employers both in the public and private sectors as the necessary knowledge, generic competencies, attitude and values that all secondary school leavers should have.”“It is not only enough that we produce students who have knowledge in particular subject areas, but individuals with competencies who can be both efficient and effective workers who have the capability for upward mobility eventually leading to organisations with leaders who are both efficient and effective and who demonstrate good characteristics of good leaders.“These factors are critical in the development of our nation,” asserted Alleyne.Those desirous of taking advantage of the ‘Second Chance’ programme can do so by visiting the AEA office at 88 Carmichael Street, South Cummingsburg, Georgetown (opposite Independence Park) or calling its office on telephone numbers: 592-225-0757, 592-227-2273, 592-227-2173.Other academic classes offered at AEA are: Upgrading Mathematics and English Language;Third and Fourth Form: English Language and Mathematics; Pre CSEC and CSEC: English Language, Mathematics, Office Administration,China Jerseys, Principles of Accounts, Principles of Business, Social Studies and Human and Social Biology.
