In order to address the underlying causes of low learning outcomes, the OECS countries developed a Regional Education Strategy "Every Learner Succeeds" whose focus is ensuring that all children learn and succeed in school. The strategy was developed in a consultative manner and has been endorsed by the OECS Ministerial Forum for implementation. With the aim of enhancing the quality of education, the Education Sector Strategy sets out the education priorities for the period 2012-2021. The “Every Learner Succeeds” regional education strategy is results based and includes the following imperatives: (i) improve the quality and accountability of education leadership; (ii) improve teacher quality, management and motivation; (iii) improve the quality of teaching and learning using learner-centered approaches; (iv) improve curriculum and strategies for assessment to meet the needs of all learners; (v) increase access to quality early childhood development services; (vi) provide opportunities for all learners to develop the knowledge, skills and attitudes to enable them to progress to further education and training and productive employment; and (vii) increased access to and relevance of tertiary and continuing education.
