THE student participation rate for Tertiary education in Trinidad and Tobago has now risen to a high of 57 percent, Tertiary Education and Skills Training Minister Fazal Karim revealed during debate on the Nurses and Midwives Bill (Amendment) in the Senate on Tuesday.
“When I assumed duties in 2010 we had a participation rate in the sector of 42 percent, but because of the expansion and the initiatives we have taken in the Ministry and in the People’s Partnership Government, I am pleased to announce that as of today, we currently have 67,000 persons participating in the tertiary education sector. Fifty five thousand of those are accessing the Government Assistance for Tuition Expenses,” Karim told the Senate.
