Abstract

The main aim of this policy paper is to critically examine the Technical, Vocational, Enterprise Education and Training (TVET) policies in Fiji and the impact of these policies on the availability of skilled workforce to the private sector in Fiji. This policy paper found that TVET policies need to be reviewed in order to streamline it to the needs of the industry. Currently, the implementation of this policy is poorly done with the Ministry of Education being the centre point of attention and the employer needs are on the peripheries of this policy design. It is recommended that employer needs should be given paramount importance in the design and implementation of TVET policies in Fiji.
