St. Vincent Education and Training



The children have compulsory schooling between the ages of 5 and 16. The school is free of charge, but spending on school uniforms, transport and books can be a challenge for poor families.

Almost all children go to preschool for at least a year before starting at the age of 5. Then follows eleven school years, divided into a six-year and a five-year stage. The proportion of children who complete all school years has increased after an expansion of schools in the 1990s and is around 90 percent.

Most schools are state-run, but there are also private schools run by churches but largely funded by state funds. There is a shortage of educated teachers.

For higher education there is a teacher's seminar and a technical institute. Since 2001, there is also a medical education that cooperates with schools and hospitals in the USA and Canada.
