Mr. Steve Chand, the Chair of the Higher Education Commission – Fiji, is presently in Kadavu undertaking an assessment of the current infrastructure in schools and training institutions. The primary objective is to strategize ways to enhance their capacity. Additionally, the team is working to pinpoint pertinent courses tailored to the specific needs of the Kadavu Province, which will be incorporated into these educational institutions. This initiative serves as a follow-up to the Provincial Council Talanoa Session organized by the HECF, dedicated to addressing the skills shortage in Fiji. The on-site exploration and course identification aim to translate the discussions from the Talanoa Session into tangible actions for fostering education and skill development.
Mr Chand is accompanied by Senior Education Officer, Mr Aminiasi Voresara. At Vunisea Secondary School, the team was warmly received by Assistant Principal, Mr Atunaisa Kaitabu and HOD Ind Arts Mr Epeli Waqa.
