What do we do at the CTVET?

Career Guidance and Development

The CTVET Act of 2004 requires the Council “to provide information and vocational guidance to persons about the choices available during their progress from general education to post- secondary technical and vocational education and training” as well as “to assist persons in finding apprenticeship places in industry and admission to technical institutes.” The CVET meets these requirements through its Career Guidance and Development Unit.

Assessment Records and Verification Exercise (ARVE)

The ARVE is a mandatory quality assurance verification exercise that takes place before certificates are approved for printing. The officers of the Assessment and Certification Unit conduct this activity. It is a complete audit of all documented evidence of each candidate’s work. This includes the candidates’ portfolios and evidence that they have completed all mandatory and elective units.

Conduct and Guide the Quality Assurance Process

Through the CTVET Act of 2004, the Council is mandated to “ensure through its inspectorate that curricular, standards, schemes and guidelines formulated by it are implemented by RTOs and TIs.” The Act also requires the monitoring of registered TIs and other tertiary institutions and regulation of their facilities. The Council carries out these functions through the Quality Assurance and Approval Audits of RTOs and TIs that eventually lead to the registration and licensing of RTO and TIs.

Development and Review of Occupational and Facility Standards

Occupational Standards define the knowledge, skills and attitudes required for effective workplace performance. They specify what a person should know and do to effectively carry out the functions of a particular job in the context of the work environment. As required by the CTVET Act of 2004, the Council undertakes curriculum analysis and establishes training and apprenticeship programmes and vocational qualifications that are relevant to the needs of Guyana and where appropriate the needs of CARICOM Member States.

The Council for TVET Act of 2004 requires the CTVET “to take appropriate steps to increase and improve the training of instructors, examiners and other training functionaries.” Under this function, the CTVET undertakes the continuous training of staff of TIs and RTOs to ensure conformity with the Quality Assurance (QA) requirements of the Competency-based Education and Training (CBET).

Prior Learning and Assessment Recognition (PLAR)

Prior Learning is the formal and non-formal learning experiences gained in an occupational area over a period of time. Assessment and recognition serve to formally determine the level of proficiency of the individual and certify or give recognition to persons who have demonstrated prior learning. Persons can be certified for the work they do by meeting all of the PLAR requirements.

Monitor and Guide the Implementation of CBET at TIs and RTOs

Competence-Based Education and Training or CBET is a functional approach to education. It emphasizes that learners need to gain the necessary knowledge, skills, understanding and attitudes or values to work successfully in their profession or occupation. In keeping with the CTVET Act of 2004, the Council developed a national system of Competency-Based Modularized Training and now monitors and guides the implementation of CBET at RTOs/Tis as part of the Quality Assurance process.

Director of the CTVET, Mr. Patrick Chinedu Onwuzirike, today joined the Ministry of Education at Parika Salem Secondary School, as the Caribbean Examinations Council (CXC) conducted the last leg of in-training audit for the students who began pursuing CVQ in 2019 for the first time in Guyana. The students joyfully exhibited their well planned, prepared and documented portfolios, including pieces of work they produced. They were able to answer questions posed by the CXC auditor about the process they followed, the materials used, innovations developed, challenges experienced and their recommendations for improvement

Mr. Onwuzirike observed that, “I am rather optimistic that pretty soon these Parika Salem students will join students from the other 8 pilot schools to receive, for the first time, CXC issued CVQs and Statements of Competences in Guyana. Parika Salem Secondary piloted the Visual Arts Occupational Area. Despite the COVID-19 challenges, the Ministry of Education, the school, the teachers and students preserved and will very soon reap the fruits of their labour.”
