Government To Push Technical And Vocational Education

The government of SVG will seek this year to make a further push for enhancing technical and vocational training.

There has been in the past a Stigma towards Technical and Vocational Education, as persons thought it was not a pathway to development.

Education officials said that the government is now seeking to create multiple pathways for self-actualization for students.

Students sitting the Caribbean Secondary Education Certificate (CSEC) examination will be doing Caribbean Vocational Qualifications (CVQs) in the electrical installation and plumbing for the first time this year.

Training will also be offered this year in Trinidad and Tobago to some sixteen teachers to pursue a range of TVET subjects areas such as plumbing, auto-mechanic and building construction.

There are about 234 persons enrolled at the four Technical Institutes here, namely at Barrouallie, Campden Park, Kingstown and Georgetown.
