dc.description.abstract This study investigated whether there were mechanics in place to build Technology Education (Tech. Ed.) and Caribbean Vocational Qualifications (CVQ) curricula in an education district in Trinidad and Tobago. It also investigated what capacity-building support mechanics the participants perceived were necessary for the sustained and successful implementation of both curricula. Participants in the study were two principals and seven teachers. Data were collected through interviews and through the administration of questionnaires. The findings revealed that the successful implementation of the Tech. Ed. and CVQ initiatives were influenced by factors relating to: 1) resources; 2) culture; 3) professionalism and teacher philosophy, training, and experience; 4) support for learning; 5) curriculum design and enactment; 6) contact hours/teaching time; and 7) leadership. en_US
