Who We Are
The Higher Education Development Unit (HEDU) was established in 2008 to facilitate institutional strengthening initiatives across the Barbados Community College (BCC), Samuel Jackman Prescod Polytechnic (SJPP) and Erdiston Teachers’ Training College (ETTC). The need for these institutions to be constantly strengthening their systems is now more crucial as higher education is changing at such a rapid pace.
HEDU is intended to work alongside the three institutions to provide support especially when a common shared service solution can be implemented and economies of scale realised.
The Higher Education Development Unit together with its sponsors will host the second Annual International Conference on excellence in higher education under the theme "The Economy of Collective Strengths: Learning Through Innovation in Multidisciplinary Education." The conference will be held at the Hilton Barbados hotel, in Barbados; October 21-24, 2012.
