Grenada Education and Training



Schooling is compulsory and free of charge for children between the ages of 5 and 16 and virtually all children participate in the education. The education system is built on a British model.

There are both state and private schools. There are most private schools in the lower seven-year primary school and only a few in the five-year secondary school.

There is a lack of premises, which often leads to overcrowded classrooms and a messy study environment. From the mid-2010s, the Government, with the support of a multimillion loan from the Caribbean Development Bank (CDB), has begun work on renovating school buildings and building a few new schools and in other ways also tried to improve the quality of education.

A structural problem is that the education that young people receive is not properly adapted to the needs of the labor market. This has meant that many of those who get a higher education find it difficult to get jobs that match their skills.

In the capital Saint George's there is an American-owned university, St George's University, with, among other things, medical education. Saint George's also has a technical vocational school, a teacher's college and a higher education in agriculture and fishing. The University of the West Indies, a collaboration between English-speaking Commonwealth countries and territories in the Caribbean, has a branch in the capital. However, many grenadies apply to Jamaica, the United States and the United Kingdom for university studies.
