Basseterre, St. Kitts, August 30, 2016 (SKNIS): The REACH (Recognizing Everyone’s Ability to Climb Higher) programme for students attending the Clarence Fitzroy Bryant College (CFBC) and AVEC (Advanced Vocational Education Centre) has been restructured and is now called SAFE (Supporting Advancement of Further Education).
Cabinet approved the programme on August 22, 2016
Students applying to the SAFE programme will be awarded on a needs basis based on criteria established by the Department of Social Services. The programme will cover the costs of registration, books and exam fees, in addition to a stipend of EC$250.00 per month to cover lunch and ground transportation. The annual incentive allowance of EC $1000.00 will be continued for students who excel in the disciplines of English, French, Spanish, Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Pure Mathematics and Applied Mathematics. These students must receive a Grade One or Two in these areas. Additionally, those students who receive grants will have to provide four (4) hours of voluntary service per month, which will be supervised by the Department of Youth Empowerment.
Students will be advised shortly of the venues to pick up the application forms. The completed application form should be delivered to the Department of Community Development.
