On Thursday 21st April, 2022, the Labour Department, which falls under the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry, Fisheries, Rural Transformation and Labour (MoA), hosted the virtual presentation of the Labour Market Analysis Training Manual.

The Labour Market Analysis Training Manual (LMATM) emerged out of a concerted venture to enhance technical capacities and underlying competencies of both prospective and existing labour market analysts across the various sectoral spaces of St. Vincent and the Grenadines (SVG).

Commissioned by the Department of Labour alongside its strategic partners and other stakeholders intimately connected to labour market planning and policy making, this LMATM represents the most comprehensive training guide and tool to be used for trainers and trainees in different types of training environments.


The presentation was conducted by lead consultant Mr. Dwayne Devonish of the University of West Indies, Cave Hill Campus. On May 16th -20th, 2022, Mr. Devonish would lead a series of training sessions with key stakeholders as part of the Labour Market Analysis and Training Consultancy.

This is a capacity building component of SVG Human Development Service Delivery (HDSD) Project which was implemented by the Government of St. Vincent and the Grenadines with the support of the International Development Association (The World Bank).
