Students attending the technical and vocational training centres at Mahaicony, Leonora and Upper Corentyne will begin receiving a monthly stipend, Government announced on Friday.Cabinet, at its most recent meeting, agreed to a proposal for the Education Ministry to pay stipends to students at technical and vocational training centres at Mahaicony, Leonora and the Upper Corentyne.

It was also noted that the completion rate for courses given in collaboration with other institutions, such as the board of industrial training where stipends were given, was much higher.”The stipends approved with effect from September 1, 2016, will be paid to students of the centres as follows – Mahaicony 00, Upper Corentyne 00 and Leonora 00 per month.Meanwhile, Cabinet has also approved the appointment of members of the National Accreditation Council (NAC) for a period of two years.
