The plans included budget plans which could be presented to the partners and stakeholders to secure funds for the purchase of EQUITV equipment.
In the opening speeches, the Acting Assistant Secretary for Standards and Guidance Division, Mrs.Annemarie Kona, stated that EQUITV was a vehicle to drive the SLIP and one of the innovative measures to deliver education to the untouched and unreached. This was fully supported by the Acting Secretary for Curriculum Development and Assessment Division, Mr.Modercai Baine, who also echoed the same sentiments by adding that media is an innovation that will be used to roll out the Standards Based Education Awareness and Advocacy. He urged the Provincial Divisions of Education to work in partnership with the National Department of Education to see that the children receive quality education.
The Project Leader, Mr.Akinori Ito and his deputy Mr.Chicko Yamaoka were happy to see that most provinces had a dissemination plan.
The Manageress for the National Education Media Centre, Ms. Hatsi Mirou congratulated the Provincial Education Advisers and their teams for the completion of their Provincial Dissemination Plans.
