ST. GEORGE’S, GRENADA, 13 August, 2014: The theoretical training towards the Caribbean Vocational Qualification (CVQ) for Imani trainees attached to schools is being rated as excellent.

The training sessions are been conducted at four centers across the island; The St. Andrew’s Anglican Secondary School, the Grenville Home Economic Centre, Grenada Boys’ Secondary School and St. Rose Modern Secondary School.

It caters to the needs of the participants training in areas of Early Childhood Care, Commercial Food Preparation and Library services.

Program Manager, Earle Williams, says the CVQ training is encouraging. He explained that from visits to the various centers it is amazing to see and hear the level of participation and enthusiasm from the trainees.

He commended the trainees for sacrificing their summer vacation to participate in the classes; “They have a sense of purpose and they see the value. They would give up their holidays to be a part of the classes.”

Williams highlighted that at the end of the theoretical training the participants are expected to return to their job sites and complete the practical aspect; which will be closely monitored, by the National Training Agency (NTA).

In addition, he mentioned that at the end of the two-year training program, the NTA will collaborate with the Ministry of Youth, Sports, and Religious Affairs to certify the trainees.

He says with a CVQ certificate, seeking employment within the Caribbean becomes easier, because, “At the end of the program, the certificate gives them the opportunity to seek employment in that particular area, anywhere in the Caribbean.”

Meanwhile, Library and Information Service Facilitator, Imoe Phillip-Charles, describes her trainees as enthusiastic and hungry for knowledge. She expects that each trainee will return to their work place more equipped with organizational skills and patience, to make their library functional.

Some of the trainees said the training is timely; as it gives them the opportunity to be more accurate and efficient when they return to the job site in September.

They welcomed the opportunity to learn new things and touch up on areas where there was previously little knowledge.

All CVQ Classes will break for the entire Carnival season, until the following Monday August 18th.
