To provide work attachments for their students, Montfort Technical Training Institute (MITT) in Savusavu brings the industry into their school.
This concept applies to the students studying Carpentry and Joinery who worked to complete orders of chairs and desks from some schools in the three provinces of Cakaudrove, Bua, and Macuata.
“Instead of arranging placements for practical experience, students work on furniture orders and are closely monitored and assessed by their own teachers,” described MITT Principal, Bro Gibi John.
The school cut their Mahogany Trees to provide the timber and sell the furniture. The process provides income for the school and the practical component of the course.
FHEC Chair, Mr Steve Chand salutes the school management and teachers for their dedication and commitment to providing quality education and training.
