Government placing emphasis on technical training

DLP candidate for Christ Church West Verla Depeiza says the portion of university fees no longer paid by government, has simply been re-allocated to other educational areas for young people.

She says many people are walking around with university degrees but lack the skills required for business.

Greater emphasis is therefore being placed on technical training as she notes government continues to subsidise courses at the Barbados Community College and the Samuel Jackman Prescod Institute of Technology.

She also says those students who cannot afford to pay the 20 percent tuition fee have been given options.
