Vocational Skills Programmes

The JENNÈS Programme aims to empower the Youth and Women of Saint Lucia by offering fully funded vocational programmes, designed to increase participants' skills and marketability.

There are currently seven (7) programmes under the JENNÈS Project, each running for three (3) months, with three separate cohorts throughout the year.

The main vocational programmes originally offered were Digital and Creative Entrepreneurship, Early Childhood Development, Health Aide, and Hospitality.

Additionally, there are the business-oriented Coaching and Incubator Programmes, which target young and aspiring entrepreneurs.

Prior to beginning any of the above programmes, a mandatory Digital Literacy for Professionals course must be completed six (6) weeks prior. This course acquaints selected participants with the online tools needed to prepare their assignments.

* Digital Literacy for Professionals is a prerequisite for all programmes. Learn more.
