Managing Both Quality and Access at Higher Educational Institutions in Tobago
Julien Sealey, Beverley
Online Submission
This paper will focus on the island of Tobago and indicate what practical solutions are best suited for administrators to manage quality and access at higher educational institutions on the island. The key areas to managing quality identified are the inclusiveness of a quality plan, administrators desire to see quality as an institutional culture and consideration of the cost of staff's attitude to the institution whilst not ignoring the impact the physical environment has on the senses and the significant role it plays in quality standards on campus. Tobago also presents its own features in managing access to higher educational institutions on the island. The distance and rural feature of the island is significant in that it places some local communities at a disadvantage. Higher education needs to be more accessible to men and persons with disabilities whilst also focusing on key programmes which will meet the demands of the labour market and foster development of Tobago and its people.
