Sixteen retired school teachers are now ready to take up teaching assignments in Tuvalu.

This after signing their employment contracts before the government of Tuvalu and Ministry of Foreign Affairs representatives this week.

Minister for Employment, Productivity and Industrial Relations Jone said: “Of the 16, nine are returning teachers and seven are new teachers deployed for the first time under the Fiji Volunteer Service Scheme and are former head teachers.”

Team leader Isoa Musuqio from Sawakasa, Tailevu, is very appreciative with Government for this initiative where they can utilise their skills and experiences to help and assist Pacific Island Countries like Tuvalu in improving their education system.

“We are coming in as general teachers especially on numeracy and literacy and this are the areas that needs to be improved to boost external examination results for primary schools in Tuvalu,” Mr Musuqio said.

“We all look forward to this assignment in supporting the Fijian Government’s initiative in assisting in the development of our neighbouring countries, especially in their human resource needs.”
