The Loss of a Colleague - Mr. Fernando Carter

Sad Loss

Fernando Carter

The Ministry of Education, Technological and Vocational Training (METVT) and the teaching fraternity were thrown into shock on Monday 15 2024 as we learnt of the sudden death of Mr. Fernando Carter, Senior Education Officer, Curriculum Section.


Mr Carter started his teaching career in 1978 and taught at the Garrison (now Graydon Sealy) Secondary, Alleyne School and Christ Church Foundation School where he was the Head of Department (General Studies) at the latter school. He was promoted in an acting capacity as Education Officer in the METVT in February 2010 and was appointed as Senior Education Officer in July 2016.


Fernando has assisted the METVT with the formulation and execution of many policy initiatives and has actively contributed to curriculum reform as part of the transformation process. He was a valued member of the METVT team and will be greatly missed. Condolences extend to his family and friends.

May he rest in peace.
