Employment Training and Education Services, Ministry of Education Youth Sports and Culture
(ETES)

UNEVOC Centre (National Body) since 1995

Major activity:

Employment Training and Education Services (ETES) focuses in providing oversight of Technical and Vocational Education and Training in Belize. It is the quality assurance arm of the Ministry of Education responsible for all matters pertaining to TVET, particulary relating to assuring quality instruction at the Institutes for Technical and Vocational Education and Training (ITVETs).


ETES is the technical arm of the Ministry of Education that provides leadership and guidance in the management and operation of Technical and Vocational Education and Training in Belize. Consistent with its mission and goals, it monitors and supervises Technical and Vocational Education and Training providers ensuring that programs offered are of the highest quality. In recognition of the pivotal role that Technical and Vocational Education plays in the development of any nation, ETES has been given the mandate to continuously upgrade and revitalize technical and vocational education and training, with the aim of continuously meeting current and future national development challenges. In this regards, ETES is responsible for ensuring that youth and adults are provided with quality occupational employment training and education services that will empower them to become gainfully or self-employed and thus actively contribute towards the development of the nation.

ETES is presently comprised of the Units of Program Research and Development, Professional Staff Development, Quality Program Coordination, Testing and Certification, and Apprenticeship.
