a)Skills in Schools - Global Citizen in the 21st Century - Today’s students will graduate into a world where the demands of our professional, personal and public lives grow more complicated every year.
Instead of slowing down, these trends are gaining momentum. As a result, our students need to be more globally aware, better able to navigate the digital world and more engaged as 21st century citizens.
Parents, families and schools have to play a key role by supporting the development of 21st Century Skills and 21st century citizenship. Providing the child with a 21st century education will give them opportunities to develop the skills, knowledge and mindsets they need to be successful in college, career and life.
b)E-testing– Education for Employment Foundation (EEF) is introducing digital or e-Assessment systems into Schools and Colleges. This would initially involve the introduction of EEF’s state of the art, cloud based, e-Assessment tools for setting class room based, formative assessments as required by teaching staff. A further longer term project to use this technology for high stakes based qualifications would then be taken up. Technical and Teaching staff would be trained in the deployment and use of the e-Assessment systems with support given by EEF in order that robust and reliable assessments of knowledge, understanding and skills can be developed and used by teachers in the State. The e-Assessment systems would provide question design, test setting, and delivery, immediate feedback to students and teachers, and data analysis.
c)Training for teachers and school heads in the areas of Mathematics, Commerce and Leadership- Education for Employment Foundation (EEF) have a broad portfolio of training to support teachers, trainers, administrators and education managers.

The goal of this arrangement is to raise the performance of the ITI and to upgrade its capability in serving the community.
g)Pre and Post Assessment- Education for Employment Foundation (EEF) is introducing Assessment systems and processes into Institutions for pre training skills auditing purposes (benchmarking etc.) and for post training performance review (performance of student, institution, course). This could be by paper based testing or involve the introduction of EEF’s state of the art, cloud based, e-Assessment tool for setting invigilated, assessments. The proposed pre and post- learning assessments would be designed to extract information required by the department, by institutions, employers and learners and to meet the needs of the Department and the State. These would be robust and reliable assessments of knowledge, understanding and skills. Institutions include educational and training establishments, employment offices and career guidance offices. Staff training and quality control procedures would be set up to ensure smooth understanding, implementation and management of these assessments. The e-Assessment systems (paper based, IT based or mixture of two approaches) would provide question design, test setting, delivery, immediate feedback to students and teachers, and data analysis.
