CARICOM Education for Employment Program

The CARICOM Education for Employment Program (C-EFE) was designed to support the economic development of the Caribbean region through the strengthening of its Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) system. It supported education and training institutions and National Training Agencies (NTAs) in the region to move from a traditional, academic, supply-driven training system to a more responsive, applied, demand-driven one that will meet the needs of the labour market and provide learners with skills required by the labour market. The program was funded by the Government of Canada through Global Affairs Canada (formerly the Department of Foreign Affairs, Trade and Development), and administered via Colleges and Institutes Canada (formerly the Association of Canadian Community Colleges).

This 3 year project was a partnership between Lakeland College, BVC, and Parkland College, and its implementation started in April 2013.
