The Education Statistical Digest is reflective of data from the 2000-2001 to 2015-2016 Academic Year. Information for the period prior to the 2000-2001, is available in the 2012-2013 Digest online at or at under the publications tab. This document is prepared primarily by the Planning and Research Units within the Ministry of Education National Reconciliation and Ecclesiastical Affairs in St. Vincent and the Grenadines with assistance from the other departments within the Ministry.

The Planning and Research Unit within the Ministry of Education expresses its deepest thanks to the Early Childhood Administrators, Primary Heads and Secondary Principals for their assistance in completing the Annual School Survey which in turn facilitated the production of this document. We acknowledge that without your data submissions this objective would not be achieved and hence we pause again to say thanks. While we cannot identify each person who contributed in one form or another, we wish to express our deepest gratitude to all those who assisted and make special mention of Mr. Anil Sutherland, who has worked tirelessly in providing student performance data, Mrs. Dixianne Richards who designed the cover page and last but not least Mrs. Jozene Franklyn and Ms. Tamira Browne, who facilitated the initial collation of the data from the institutions without which the preparation of this document would not have been possible and also for their assistance in editing the publication.

The 2015-2016 Digest provides data regarding teacher qualifications, education expenditure by level, enrolment in Early Childhood, Primary, Special Education, Secondary Levels, Technical Institutes and Post Secondary / Tertiary Education.
