President Major-General (Ret’d) Jioji Konrote, says the World TVET Conference will help us to refine our education and vocational training.

Speaking in Suva yesterday, at the first conference of its type in the Pacific, Mr Konrote added this would allow a smoother transition for our children from school to employment.

President of the International Vocational Education and Training Association (IVETA), Carmel Thompson, said she was thrilled that Fiji was hosting the conference this year and had applauded the organisers for making the event a reality.

More than 200 overseas delegates from 40 different countries are attending the three-day event.

The theme for this year’s conference is: “Quality, Innovation and Skill Mobilisation in Technical Vocational Education and Training – an internationalisation process.”

The World TVET Conference is hosted by the Fiji National University (FNU) in partnership with the Pacific TVET Association.
