Four Institutions First On Fiji Framework

Four higher education institutions in the country are the first to have their own developed qualifications accredited on the Fiji Qualifications Framework (FQF). This means the qualifications will be recognised throughout the Pacific region.

The approval for accreditation was issued by the Fiji Higher Education Commission on the advice of the Fiji Qualifications Council.

The approved programmes include seven programmes from Fulton, A university College, two from the College of Theology and Evangelism, two from the South Pacific Academy of Beauty Therapy and three from Vivekananda Technical College.

Being accredited on the Fiji Qualifications Framework means that these qualifications are recognised by the Pacific Register for Qualifications and Standards (PRQS).

The Pacific Register of Qualifications and Standards (PRQS) is a regional database of all quality assured qualifications and standards offered in each Pacific Island country.

“We salute these four institutions for being the first to have their provider qualifications accredited on the FQF and other higher education institutions are urged to do likewise,” said FHEC Executive Chairman Dr Richard Wah.

“When programmes are given such recognition, the institutions will in turn earn that respect and trust.”

Dr Wah explained that one of the FHEC’s major focuses is on quality assurance of institutions and the programmes they offer.
