|The TVET Council is a statutory organization dedicated to improving the competitive position of Barbados through workforce development. Established by the Technical and Vocational Education and Training Council Act, 1993-11 of the Laws of Barbados, the Council is mandated to plan, coordinate and establish standards and qualifications for technical and vocational education and training. The main functions of the TVET Council are to:
Advise the Minister of Labour on policy relating to Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET)
Make grants or loans for the support and provision of TVET
Establish training priorities, tests, qualifications and accreditation
Establish occupational standards for TVET
Coordinate TVET at the tertiary level.
The Council subscribes to the tenet that technical and vocational education and training is the principle engine of workforce development. It can be used as an arm of economic policy to support business competitiveness and growth. It can be used as an instrument of public policy to address equity concerns about disadvantages in the labour market. TVET alone cannot produce economic growth or social equity, yet it is a fundamental enabling factor.
As a workforce development tool, TVET has a crucial role to play in:
Preparing the economy for the future
Helping to close Barbados’ productivity gap with its competitors and
Contributing to social inclusion.
“To be seen as the premier catalyst for workforce development in the region”.
“To develop a competent and competitive workforce in Barbados and the Wider Caribbean”.
