A new partnership agreement has been signed between the Australia-Pacific Technical College (APTC) and the Fiji National University (FNU) to allow the two institutions to work collaboratively over the next two years on the delivery of APTC’s Painting and Decorating and Applied Fashion Design and Technology qualifications.

The programmes will be accredited and delivered by APTC for the first three semesters, with the view that FNU will establish an equivalent programme from 2018.

This will enable continuation of the courses at FNU with the ability for graduates to also achieve an Australian qualification through the process of APTC’s recognition of prior learning.

APTC is an innovative development project funded by the Australian government, delivering Australian-standard skills and qualifications for a wide range of vocational careers for skilled workers across the Pacific.

Under the partnership, a major focus is on the capacity building of FNU trainers to ensure sustainability of the training in Fiji.

APTC will also improve the Fashion Design and Technology facilities at FNU Nabua Campus to ensure the training area and equipment is current and compliant with the Australian training package and the Health and Safety requirements.

The agreement was signed on June 10 at the FNU Nasinu Campus by APTC chief executive officer Denise O’Brien and the FNU chancellor Ikbal Jannif.
