Critchlow Labour College returns to Linden

first_img– new programmes being offeredFollowing several years of absence from Linden, Region 10 (Upper Demerara- Berbice), the Critchlow Labour College was re-launched in the community with offers of newer and more diversified educational opportunities for students. The re-launching exercise took place at the Linden Enterprise Network (LEN) in the presence of numerous officials and residents. Among those present were Member of Parliament (MP) Audwin Rutherford, Trade Unionist Lincoln Lewis, and Regional Vice Chairman Elroy Adolph, among numerous others.In delivering the feature presentation, MP Rutherford said the institution’s role inA section of the gathering at the opening of the Critchlow Labour College, Lindenmaking students job-ready and also assisting them in matriculation is very important, as he pointed to the scores of persons who have benefited over the years, noting that the country would forever be grateful to the institution.The MP encouraged all to make best use of the services offered, while he stressed the need for an Organisation of Tertiary Education Providers in Guyana, and urged the institution to fill this gap. “I think it’s timely that we provide skills for the oil and gas industry,” he posited.In addition, Rutherford said the institution must also understand the present shortcomings of employees, and must fashion its programmes according to challenges which Guyana faces, as well as to seek collaboration with non-governmental organisations (NGO) and community development councils. He said Critchlow Labour College must also assist students in becoming entrepreneurs, in addition to equipping them to become job ready.In his remarks, the Principal, Ivor English, noted that it is significant that the event took place at a time when the institution is preparing to observe its 50th anniversary. He expressed how proud he felt to be part of that history. He said the intention is not only to focus on the social sciences area, but to have an active programme in agriculture.The Principal outlined that the flagship course continues to be the industrial and social studies programme, and that it will be commencing with that programme, since it allows persons access into the University of Guyana and Teachers College.English noted that programmes such as Social Work, Caring for the Elderly, Child Care, Sociology, Psychology and English are presently being offered, in addition to Certificate courses in Further Access to Education.The Principal said Texila University has found its footing out of that institution, and noted that the institution has developed a syllabus for Master’s Degree in Food Security, which will be launched in collaboration with Texila American University. Additionally, he said the institution has a synergy with the MatPal Maritime Training Institute.New Programmes (1 year) include Certificate in Sustainable Agriculture, Certified in Sustainable Forestry, Certificate in Fisheries and Agriculture, and Certificate in Sustainable Mining.According to the Principal, the institution, which will operate out of the Linden Technical Institute, is awaiting a minimum of 30 students before commencing.last_img read more

Man admits setting fire to bridge

first_img“I think \ was a fair result for everybody involved,” Lunsford said. “Unfortunately, it won’t bring back the bridge, but it’s a just result for everyone.” At the time of his arrest, Gastelum told police he had started the fire to keep warm. But at his arraignment, he pleaded not guilty, claiming that another homeless man ignited the blaze by tossing a burning cigarette under the bridge. Doubts about Gastelum’s mental competence delayed his trial for several weeks in April while psychiatrists evaluated his ability to help in his own defense. Gastelum’s stepfather, Rudolf Rector, expressed relief that his stepson would not serve too much more time in prison. “I feel good,” Rector said. “He looked awful today, with all gray streaks in his beard and hair. But at least this gives my wife \ a little peace. She’s still worried though, because she’s afraid he’ll go right back under the bridge.” NORWALK – A homeless man accused of setting fire to the Beverly Boulevard bridge Nov.1 pleaded guilty Thursday and was sentenced to two years in state prison. Nelson Gastelum, 29, pleaded guilty to the felony charge of “recklessly causing a fire of a structure.” He was arrested Nov. 4 after the fire destroyed the bridge – a major east-west thoroughfare. The loss of the bridge caused traffic snarls for months as motorists struggled to find alternate routes. Family members told the court during his preliminary hearing that Gastelum had been living for a year under the bridge, which spanned the Rio Hondo Channel between Pico Rivera and Montebello. District Attorney Brock Lunsford said Gastelum will probably serve less than the two years after the Department of Corrections takes into account the jail time he has already served. Rector said he had arranged for a room for his stepson at a local mental health facility, but he couldn’t predict how long Gastelum would stay with the program. “He has a hard time following the rules,” Rector said.

Two in five students drop out of courses at LYIT – report

first_imgStudents at Letterkenny IT have some of the highest drop-out rates in Irish institutes, according to a new report.The Higher Education Authority has recorded that 39% of students who started at the institute in 2007/2008 did not finish programmes.LYIT had the best retention rate in the country for level 8 degrees (13% dropout), while areas of concern include the 42% of entrants to Level 6 courses who did not complete their programmes. Over 770 students enrolled at LYIT in the year of the study. From this cohort, 474 completed their programmes and 302 dropped out.This is the first time that completion rates have been studied across all HEA institutions and universities in Ireland. Computing and technology degrees were identified as having the highest dropout rates across the board.The HEA ranked LYIT’s Computing course among the 19 courses with the poorest completion rates in universities and ITs nationally. 48% of students who enrolled in this course failed to make it to graduation.LYIT President Paul Hannigan has welcomed today’s report. Speaking to Donegal Daily, he said completion rates are a complex issue. Mr Hannigan said: “This is a multi-variative issue that takes into consideration a lot of issues other than student points and abilities, you have to look at socio-economic background, etc.”Mr Hannigan said other HEA analysis shows that Letterkenny IT has one of the best retention rates of any institute or university in the country, when all aspects such as the background of students and points levels are considered. “From that perspective it’s saying the service we provide here in terms of staff engagement is very strong and that shows in student surveys,” he said.The lowest combined course completion rate – across all Irish colleges – was computing at 55%. The highest retention levels were in schools of education and health and welfare.Mr Hannigan said there is an obvious issue relating to retention in Computing.He said: “The main aspect is around students’ expectations around what the programme actually provides. Students come in initially to study computer programming and there’s a maths requirement around that. So maybe the expectations on the course didn’t fit what they actually expected.” Looking at the detailed field of study areas showed that hotel, restaurant and catering studies were found to have the lowest completion rate (53%) in Ireland. No specific data was provided for individual institutes.Regarding the low completion in catering, Mr Hannigan said the figures were surprising compared to student numbers at the Killybegs Campus of LYIT.“From our perspective, we have had really good progression through the courses at Killybegs and the employment rate at the end of them is nearly 100%,” he said.Mr Hannigan added: “The biggest thing why people don’t complete courses in LYIT from our own experience is that they are going to get a job somewhere, so that’s not a negative, that’s a positive. There’s a whole load of factors involved in this. If I had a solution to this issue, going back 30 years, I’d be a millionaire.” Mr Hannigan’s comments came prior to the official launch of the Institute of Guidance Counsellors National Conference 2019, which will take place at LYIT this April.He said the major event will bring positive opportunities to the region.“We were delighted to be asked to host the event by the local IGC branch. We’re going to have possibly 400 guidance counsellors here, so it’s very important for us to show off the Institute, to show off the region and show our possibilities for further development,” Mr Hannigan said.Two in five students drop out of courses at LYIT – report was last modified: February 14th, 2019 by Rachel McLaughlinShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:educationLYITlast_img read more

Lake Junaluska drawdown will begin Feb.7th

first_imgLake Junaluska will open its dam and begin drawing down the lake on Sunday, Feb. 7. The lake drawdown, which occurs every few years, offers a number of benefits to the life and health of Lake Junaluska, including removing silt, cleaning litter and making necessary repairs to the dam and sewer system. The lake will be filled again in time for Easter.Silt deposits come from runoff into the Richland Creek and Factory Branch stream watersheds, which feed into Lake Junaluska. The work conducted will follow U.S. Army Corps of Engineers permit requirements.“From the very beginning, over 100 years ago, sediment has been deposited in the lake and has to be removed every few years,” said Lake Junaluska Executive Director Jack Ewing. “The lake is one of the greatest assets of Haywood County and it is important for it to be maintained for its beauty and recreational value.”Another benefit of the drawdown is removal of litter that collects on the edges and bottom of the lake.Additionally, during the drawdown local business RCF Construction will refurbish one of the three gates on the dam and rebuild a manhole that is part of the Lake Junaluska sewer system. Both Lake Junaluska and the Town of Waynesville sewer lines are located in the lake.The drawdown will follow the Polar Plunge, a popular winter event sponsored by the Haywood Waterways Association on Saturday, Feb. 6.From beginning to end activities associated with the lake drawdown typically take seven to eight weeks. This time frame can be affected by rain and snow, or lack thereof. The process is scheduled to be completed by Good Friday, ensuring the lake will again be filled for the annual Easter activities, including the Friends of the Lake 5K on Saturday, March 26, and the Easter Sunday service at Stuart Auditorium on March 27.Richland Creek will continue to flow through Lake Junaluska. Fish ducks and other wildlife manage well in the shallow waters until the lake refills.“While wildlife become concentrated during a drawdown, we are told by experts that there are no ill effects on them,” said Ewing. “In fact, people who fish say that the fishing is just as good after the lake comes back up as it was before the drawdown.”The Lake Junaluska walking path will remain open, though pedestrians are cautioned to watch for heavy equipment at the lake entry points set up for this project along U.S. 19. There will be no boating on the lake until the lake is restored to full pool.For more information, contact Rachel Watkins at or 828-454-6702. To register for the Polar Plunge, visit read more
