Students across Guyana have benefitted from renewed investment into education, as the government has worked to skill youth in preparation for their future careers.

Improvements in Guyana’s technical and vocational education and training (TVET) institutions now allow them to offer the internationally-recognized Caribbean Vocational Qualification (CVQ). The qualification was introduced in 2016 after the education sector met the required teaching and facility standards, thanks to investments by President Granger’s government.

Higher educational standards are key to attracting greater investment in our country to create even more jobs. We now have students at 37 vocational colleges working towards their CVQs in such areas as engineering, carpentry and graphic design.
