EdYou FM’s first IDB-Sponsored Radio training completed
Written by EDYOU FM Staff on October 25, 2022
Sixteen (16) teachers from primary schools in Regions Three, Four, Five and Ten today completed a two-week radio scripting and presenting workshop.
Under the guidance of veteran broadcaster and communications specialist Dr Rovin Deodat, the Primary School teachers were trained to plan, script and present educational content for radio. The scripts are being produced to reflect the Ministry of Education’s revised curriculum.
The sum used to offset the expense of this training was derived from a US $642,000 EdYou FM received from Inter- American Development Bank (IDB). This is the first tranche of money used from this sum.
This assistance falls under the project 5180/BL-GY-2; Support to Safety Nets for Vulnerable Populations Affected by Coronavirus in Guyana.
Projects under BL-GY-2 will target the production of 450 new radio programmes, catering for students in the nursery, primary and secondary school students (up to grade nine) in the areas of Mathematics, Language Arts, Science and Social Studies. It will also help to strengthen the radio station’s capacity with updated production resources.
