Governance in Guyana

Guyana’s Ministry of Education is the government body responsible for the provision of public education in Guyana. Its objective is to provide free, universal education from pre-primary to secondary school level. The Ministry of Education is also responsible for the development of policy for all levels of education in the country. Guyana’s Regional Democratic Councils are also involved in the provision of education in their respective regions. Examinations are administered by the Caribbean Examinations Council (CXC). The CXC works in collaboration with ministries of education throughout the Caribbean to develop common curriculums in order for secondary school pupils to gain the Caribbean Secondary Education Certificate (CSEC) and Caribbean Advanced Proficiency Examination (CAPE).
