BACKGROUND of the SLCTVET
The Saint Lucia Council for Technical Vocational Education and Training (SLCTVET) was formally established by an Act of Parliament in November 2007 to coordinate and monitor formal, informal and non-formal TVET programmes at the national level. It is a tripartite body made up of Government, Employers and Unions.
The SLCTVET works in collaboration with the TVET Unit of the Ministry of Education, Innovation, Gender Relations and Sustainable Development to coordinates the provision of TVET within the school system.
In May 2013, the SLCTVET was granted permission to award the Caribbean Vocational Qualification (CVQ). This was done after careful scrutiny and auditing of the Council's operations and quality assurance procedures.
