Description

States in the Caribbean Community (Caricom) are exploring regional integration of TVET as a means of improving the quality of training to enable improved worker performance and labour market mobility of workers in the region. This involves reaching a consensus on (1) the basis for design of training programmes, e.g. the approach to standards, use of ompetency-based approaches, etc., and (2) the framework for recognition and certification of trainees/workers that facilitates upward mobility and lifelong learning. Current efforts to achieve regional integration are discussed with issues and problems highlighted for discussion.
