APTC Welcomes New Students

The Australia-Pacific Technical College (APTC) has welcomed more than 700 Pacific Island students undertaking training in technical and vocational courses with a two-day orientation programme.

The orientation sessions at APTC campuses in Fiji, Papua New Guinea, Samoa, Solomon Islands and Vanuatu, provided valuable information to new students on APTC facilities, student support services, regulations, and their responsibilities.

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

APTC chief executive officer, Denise O’Brien, warmly welcomed the students, encouraging them to make the most of their time at APTC.

“We want to ensure you have access to personal development and the ability to build your expertise to enable you to be a valuable employee and contributor to your family and community.

“Study hard, commit to a high standard of work ethic and do everything in your power to make the most of the opportunity that has been presented to you,” she said.

Ms O’Brien said she looks forward to seeing students successfully complete their six-month programmes, and join the growing pool of over 10,000 APTC graduates.
