Permanent Secretary for Education Iowane Tiko has been transferred to the Youth and Sports ministry from today, it was announced yesterday in a statement issued by the Department of Information.

He has been replaced by Alison Burchell, the Permanent Secretary for Youth and Sports. Her appointment at Education is effective from today. Both appointments, seen as major reshuffles by the Public Service Commission, were agreed to by Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama, the statement said.

Mr Tiko was appointed Permanent Secretary after previously serving as the Director of Curriculum Advisory Services.

South African national Ms Burchell was appointed a Permanent Secretary in February 2016.

Two weeks ago on January 17, the Public Service Commission announced the swapping of Permanent Secretary roles for Jitendra Singh, who served in the Agricultural Ministry to that of Permanent Secretary for Public Enterprises, with incumbent David Kolitagane.
