MUT proposes setting up of virtual school to provide services to vulnerable students
The MUT is currently discussing a proposal with the Ministry for Education and Employment to set up a virtual online school to provide teaching and learning to students who are vulnerable and are not attending schools. The MUT understands that students who cannot attend school during this scholastic year, due to their health conditions, shall be provided with an alternative which caters for their requirements. To this effect, the MUT is finalising discussions with MEDE, which is the employer and service provider, regarding the setting up of the virtual school. It is understood that this shall not affect the workload of educators in schools as the service shall run in parallel with dedicated educators.
