Technical Vocational and Education Training (TVET) institutes will soon be offering the Caribbean Vocational Qualifications (CVQ) Certificate. This was disclosed by Chief Education Officer, Olato Sam during an interview with the Government Information Agency (GINA).
We have developed partnerships with foreign entities that have certainly supported our institutions such as the Government Technical Institute, the Linden Technical Institute that certainly are benefitting from those external collaboration,” he stated.
We have also done quite a bit of work to streamline the offerings so that young people in secondary schools are very aware of the potential pathways that they embark on through our Secondary Competency Certificate Programme (SCCP) which is TVET- based,” Sam explained.
It’s just a matter of supporting TVET education across the board so that it is accessible, relevant and can actually speak to the developmental needs of the nation.”
