Dominica to host CVQ Forum

CVQThe government of Dominica, in collaboration with the CARICOM Education for Employment (CE-FE), will host a two-day sensitization program on the Caribbean Vocational Qualification (CVQ) in Dominica, from March 9-10, 2016.

The announcement was made by Minster for Education, Peter St. Jean, during a press conference on Friday.

According to Saint. Jean, the program serves as part of the government’s “continuous effort to strengthen the region-wide implementation of the Caribbean Vocational Qualification (CVQ), and to specifically improve Dominica’s position to implement CVQs nationwide.”

The forum will be industry-led, and will be co-hosted by the CARICOM Secretariat, the Caribbean Association of National Training Authorities (CANTA) and the Dominica Technical and Vocational Education and Training Council (DTVETC).

Saint. Jean said that the forum will be used to attract the attention of the private sector to the new CARICOM-approved TVET Strategy.

“The forum will bring to the attention of the private sector the new CARICOM-approved TVET Strategy, detailing the seven pillars upon which the Region has agreed to build its TVET development agenda,” he said.

The CVQ’s initiatives for reinforcing economic competitiveness within the region will also be discussed during the forum by industry leaders in Dominica.

“The CVQ and its implication for strengthening the economic competitiveness of the region will be featured in the forum, giving industry leaders the opportunity to contribute to a progressive plan for its implementation in Dominica,” St. Jean noted.

The results of the CARICOM Trade and Competitiveness Project, specific to Dominica, will also be shared at the forum.

    don’t miss this opportunity girls and boys. To put it bluntly ,you were born with knowledge and wisdom to do things without attending a school or college. You did not have to go to school to drive a vehicle, build a house, find a safe place when crossing the road, make a garden. “realistic”. you must be safety conscious followed by a verifier. Holding this certificate improves your chances of getting a job anywhere in the Caribbean. “Good luck”
