Education structure

The education structure at GVP

Since 2015 onward the Gwendoline van Putten School has gradually moved from a Dutch to a Caribbean educational structure: the system of the Caribbean Examinations Council (CXC). This educational structure originates from England and was amended to the Caribbean way of teaching and culture. At the Gwendoline van Putten School, currently three CXC programs are offered: the Caribbean Certificate of Secondary Level Competence (CCSLC), the Caribbean Secondary Education Certificate (CSEC), and the Caribbean Vocational Qualification (CVQ). In addition to the CXC programs, the GvP School offers Praktijkonderwijs (PrO), the practical stream.

The language of instruction is English, and our educational approach is dedicated to the regional needs and demands of the Caribbean. All students are therefore exposed to the foreign languages Spanish and Dutch.
