Frequently Asked Questions

What is the National Training Agency?

The National Training Agency is the national coordinating agency for technical and vocational education and training in Grenada.

What is a National Vocational Qualification (NVQ)?

This is an occupational/work-based award that is achieved nationally through assessment and training. NVQs are based on national standards of competence drawn up by representatives from each industry sector, and against which assessments are done. To achieve an NVQ candidates must prove that they have the ability (competence) to carry out their job to the required standard which describes the competencies expected in any given job role. Typically, candidates will work towards an NVQ that reflects their role in a paid or voluntary position. NVQs are available in five levels and are accredited by the National Training Agency.

What is a Caribbean Vocational Qualification (CVQ)?

This is an award that represents the achievement of a set of competencies which define core work practices of an occupational area, consistent with the levels articulated within the regional qualification framework. To earn an award, candidates must demonstrate competence in reaching CARICOM-approved occupational standards developed by industry experts.

What is the value of the CVQ award?

The CVQ is a recognized qualification that facilitates the free movement of skilled people through the CARICOM region. The CVQ:

  • Provides a basis for articulation and accreditation
  • Provides broad-based preparation for employment
  • Is an alternative route to further/higher education
  • Complements and has parallel standing with academic qualifications
  • Provides enhanced employability and higher earning potential
  • Facilitates apprenticeship with actual work experience
  • Equips candidates with the knowledge, skills and attitudes for the workplace
  • Allows previous work experience and skills to count towards achieving the CVQ
  • Allows for continuity where a candidate can complete the CVQ at another centre/school if training is interrupted.

Where is the CVQ recognized?

The CVQ is recognized within all CARICOM countries.
