Development model l.jpg
Development Model

  • Existing national training entities offered disparate training programmes at several levels – Certificates, Diplomas, Associate Degrees, Bachelor Degrees and Master Degrees

  • Articulation between programmes not clearly defined

  • Infrastructure at the existing institutions were inadequate

  • Industry input for alignment of the programmes, and the cadre of graduates being produced

  • Fragmented R&D

April 2008


Development model6 l.jpg
Development Model

  • Strategy for expanding access and enhancing quality was to integrate existing institutions and/or functions under UTT umbrella

  • Development of relevant teaching curricula identified as a key factor

  • Development of R&D capacity also identified as an important requirement

  • TTIT is the first integrated institution (2004)

  • Teachers Colleges at Corinth and Valsayn and Technical Institutes at San Fernando and Port of Spain followed

    Steelband - The Beginning

    "Pan as an item was not invented b

    y any person. It evolved and there

    are a number of people, including

    myself, who advanced it through

    certain stages of that evolution."

    (Elliott Mannette, October 25, 2000)

    Between 1838 and 1883, the beating of skin drums was an integral part of Carnival celebrations. When a ban on all drum-beating was imposed in 1884, Carnival celebrants had to look for an alternative to the skin drum. They turned to bamboo after they discovered that dried bamboo of various diameters produced different sounds, when cut to differing lengths and struck with wooden sticks. Bands that used bamboo to produce music were called Tamboo Bamboo bands and the first report of such a band taking part in Carnival was in 1891. With the passage of time, Tamboo Bamboo bands were integrated into Carnival and flourished until the 1930s.
