Published on August 22, 2014 Email To Friend    Print Version

The five-member Lesotho delegation is being led by Makabelo Mosothoane, minister of education and training.

While in Barbados, the delegation will hold wide-ranging discussions with CXC officials, pay a courtesy call on Senator Harcourt Husbands, parliamentary secretary in the ministry of education, science, technology and innovation, and sign a memorandum of understanding with CXC on Tuesday.

Among the matters to be discussed is CXC’s method of implementing continuous assessment in all of its examinations. The Council is seen as one of the global leaders in continuous assessment. The delegation will also discuss the Caribbean Advanced Proficiency Examination (CAPE), which CXC introduced in 1998 as a replacement for the British A’ levels.

“CXC is happy to welcome another delegation from an African country as the Council is viewed by other examinations boards world-wide as a leader in several aspects of examinations administration,” stated Glenroy Cumberbatch, CXC Acting Registrar.

The Examinations Council of Lesotho (ECoL) was established in 1986. The Council is a non-profit making organisation which is responsible for conducting public examinations, national assessment surveys, and introducing and monitoring continuous assessment on behalf of the ministry of education and training (MoET).

In the past five years, CXC has hosted similar delegations from Botswana and Zambia.
