Students encouraged to resume studies in 6th Form Pathway Programme


Children who dropped out of high school before completing five years of study are encouraged to continue their education through the Sixth Form Pathway Programme.

The Education Ministry has now made it mandatory for children to complete seven years of high school instead of ending at 5th form.

Portfolio Minister Fayval Williams noted that some children’s circumstances may prevent them from completing the first five years, so the Pathway Programme allows them to resume their studies at grade 12.

The children would have to meet the requirements, which included being under the age of 18.

Minister Williams added that an allowance will also be made for those who dropped out of the 6th form programme, to resume studies later on.

The Education Minister is also urging parents to invest in their children beyond grade 11.
