The Fiji National University and the Australian Pacific Training Coalition today signed the Partnership framework that aspires to strengthen the TVET system in Fiji.
The FNU-APTC partnership framework began in 2007 and focuses on developing work forces and improving employment opportunities for Pacific people domestically, regionally and internationally.
Australia’s Deputy High Commissioner to Fiji, Anna Dorney said the partnership signifies the shared commitment in creating a productive workforce for the Pacific.
Dorney said the partnership demonstrated a strong mutual commitment to provide high-quality training and building a skilled, demanding and productive workforce in Fiji.
FNU’s Vice Chancellor Professor Nigel Healey said the collaboration will enable the university to upgrade the resources that will provide quality training for their students and also collaborate to Australian recognition for new FNU qualifications.
APTC’s Chief Executive Officer Soli Middleby said all of their programs are designed and delivered as a response to industry’s skills market need. She also said the partnership will further solidify APTC’s relationship with FNU.
