This publication is an overview and guide to the Comprehensive Teacher Training Programme (CTTP), a four-course education programme of study for untrained Caribbean primary school teachers designed to prepare them to pass Caribbean Examinations Council (CXC) examinations for entry into teacher training colleges. The programme offers courses in English, mathematics, social studies, and integrated science. An opening section describes the programme and its format. A section on the lessons describes their content, format, objectives, components such as exercises and assignments, and the school-based assessments for social studies and science. Another section describes the students' learning packages. The next section presents a study flow chart which outlines the steps in the process: material distribution, start-up session, supply purchase, beginning of study, learner checkpoints and self-assessments, telephone assistance, end module tests and their scoring and recording, continued study, advice from tutors, and student journals. A section on other activities describes related questionnaires, term tests, audio tapes, and telephone, peer and face-to-face assistance. Final sections explain testing, sitting for the CXC examinations, CXC grading, and face-to-face sessions. Lists of materials, supplies, and textbooks are included
