THE GRENADA NATIONAL TRAINING AGENCY (GNTA)
The Grenada National Training Agency (GNTA) as empowered by the GCTVET Act of 2009 is the agency mandated to co-ordinate, facilitate and enable the development and growth of Technical and Vocational Education and Training in Grenada Carriacou and Petite Martinique. The Agency through modes of training intervention intends to help in ensuring that there exists a supply of trained and skilled workers to service labour market needs and thereby contribute to higher levels of productivity in the Grenadian economy. The organization by way of policy seeks to have developed and approved occupational standards derived from industry specifications and to guide the training, assessment and certification within the Grenada TVET System. The Grenada Council for Technical Vocational Education and Training (GCTVET) created by an ACT of parliament in 2009 is empowered to approve standards for the award certification leading to Caribbean Vocational Qualification (CVQ’s) and National Vocational Qualification (NVQ’s). The GNTA has established industry lead groups responsible for vetting standards as well as specifying and recommending standards to be approved.
The National Training Agency (NTA) is based in Grenada. Its mission is to ‘enhance the employability of Grenada’s workforce’. The NTA provides CVQ and NVQ certification to candidates from Approved Training Centres. The New Life Organization (NEWLO) is an approved Training Centre that undertakes training in NVQ/CVQ.
