I.M.P.A.C.T

Inspiring Matriculation through Performance Assessment and Curriculum Transformation

The Division of Education, Research and Technology (DERTech) proudly presents I.M.P.A.C.T. (Inspiring Matriculation through Performance Assessment and Curriculum Transformation), a long-term performance enhancement project that is geared toward improving students’ competencies thereby unveiling their full potential.

The recently concluded 2023 Secondary Entrance Assessment (SEA) examination resulted in 159 of Tobago’s students (15%) scoring less than 30%. This apparent decline in performance necessitates a systematic and strategic approach to improving students’ performance thereby influencing higher levels of matriculation.

I.M.P.A.C.T will replace the traditional vacation program and will target the following three tiers of students:

a)    Those who scored 0-30% at the 2023 SEA exams

b)    Those who scored 31-50% at the 2023 SEA exams

c)    Prospective Standard 5 students who are deemed at risk based on their Mathematics and English Language scores at their End of Year Exam.

Sessions will commence on Monday 17th July, 2023 and resume at the beginning of each term of the academic year 2023/2024 in the first instance. Cycle 2 will run for four weeks until Monday 14th August, 2023 between the hours of 8:00am to 2:30pm on  Mondays – Thursdays. Face to face instruction will be conducted at 20 centres island wide with lunches to be provided at each session. Registration begins at 1:00pm on 17th July, 2023 and closes at 12:00 noon on 14th August, 2023.

I.M.P.A.C.T strategically focuses on improving the holistic (academic and co-curricular) development of all learners in the education sector through quality and equitable teaching and learning strategies that will unveil learning potential and provide varied learning experiences.
