The BAC congratulates new Chief Education Officer

The BAC congratulates Dr Ramona Archer-Bradshaw on her new appointment as Chief Education Officer, and welcomes her as the newest member of the BAC’s Board Of Directors. Dr Archer-Bradshaw’s wealth of knowledge and experience in education brings immense value to the Ministry of Education– and her familiarity with post-secondary/tertiary education makes her an asset to the functions and role of the BAC.
She holds a Doctorate of Philosophy in Education with High Commendation from the University of the West Indies. She also holds a Postgraduate Diploma in Public Sector Management with Double Distinction at Erdiston Teachers’ Training College – one of the BAC’s registered providers. Dr. Archer-Bradshaw was previously the Deputy Principal and Acting Principal of Erdiston Teachers Training College.
During her tenure at Erdiston, she was a member of the Strategic Planning Committee and the Steering Committee for the Registration/Accreditation Process, granting essential knowledge when associating with the Council. Also, in more recent times during the COVID-19 pandemic, Dr Archer-Bradshaw was the Chairman of the committee responsible for transitioning from face-to-face to remote teaching and learning with the assistance of her team.
Overall, she has spent over 20 years of educational experience as a teacher, researcher and leader. She has presented several papers on education and had represented Barbados at the most prominent American interdisciplinary research association devoted to the scientific study of teaching and learning, known as the American Educational Research Association (AERA). In addition to this, she has presented papers at the UWI Biennial Conference and the Higher Education Development Unit’s International Conference on Higher Education.
As Dr Archer-Bradshaw takes up her new position, Executive Director Mrs Lisa Gale said, “Dr Bradshaw is no stranger to the Council, and her strengths will surely be consulted as the BAC continues to advance its work in assuring quality in higher education, and, more specifically, building out the National Qualifications Framework. We anticipate maintaining close ties as with all Chiefs of Education. We look forward to continuing the legacy of guidance and partnership between the Ministry and the Council.”
Mrs Gale added, “I take this time to also thank Mrs Joy Adamson who acted in the post, recommitting the BAC to continue bringing awareness to local tertiary providers of the need for registration, accreditation, and approval of new programme offerings.”
