    Where to begin? There is validity bin the general statement – we need skills development where skills refers to trades and broader competencies. Yes, education at the broader level needs to be tied to the needs of the country. Our challenge is the rigid belief that there’s is a pecking order for jobs and careers where trades and some new skills/professions ‘doh make de cut’. Is doctor, lawyer, programmer, business person. The education vision should include robust career development and career awareness program influenced by business, industry and regional/global reality. Culturally we need agility re-orientation ourselves. Cannot be lifelong learners if we don’t embrace or encourage lifelong beyond high school ‘subjects’.
