The SBO Service Center was established by the Island Government to coordinate and support the accreditation process and organization of advanced SBO courses. It is seen as an investment in those seeking to further their education and, thus, in the economic future of the nation as a whole.

A formal education is an important determinant of individual earnings as well as economic growth. Given the demand for skilled workers in the labour market, if the nation is to stand any chance at all of surviving economic challenges, an investment in vocational education and training at the secondary level is essential.

Individuals must therefore acquire the necessary education and skills and knowledge to increase their value in the labour market and the SBO Center along with its partner SBO educational institutions have provided the avenue and link to the business community and the labour market.

Education, training and experience are the three main mechanisms for enhancing the human capital which is at the forefront of SBO education.

SBO/SVE education is very important in improving and further developing the skills of the nationĂ¢??s workforce.
