Jamaica: 2,000 students to learn coding via Amber Group, MOE partnership

The Amber Group is partnering with the Ministry of Education, Youth and Information (MOEYI) to introduce coding in schools via the Pilot Coding in Schools Programme to promote and develop the teaching and learning of coding in public schools across Jamaica.

Under a memorandum of understanding (MOU) between the two entities, 2,000 students from grades four and nine from 20 primary and secondary schools respectively across the island will benefit from this initiative.

Speaking at the official signing of the MOU on Friday, May 7, Amber Group’s Head of Sales and Business Development Floyd Garrett, emphasised Amber’s commitment to developing the necessary software development skills to fast track the incorporation of technology for growth and innovation in Jamaica and the region.

The Amber Group had earlier this year partnered with the HEART NSTA/Trust to train coding and software development skills to young Jamaicans.
