Executive Summary: The two main objectives of this study are to: 1) provide an electronic and physical data base of all researches and studies conducted in Tongan education in the last 15 years, and; 2) provide data on the employability and experiences of the graduates of the Tonga Institute of Education(TIOE) and the Tonga Institute of Higher Education (TIHE) that have graduated in the last five years (2007 – 2011). The study showed that graduates of both TIOE and TIHE have very high employability status. Data has also shown that graduates from both institutions spend minimal time in trying to find employment. Almost half the graduates from TIOE and two-thirds of the graduates from TIHE find employment within 3 months and one-fifth from TIOE and one-thirds from TIHE found employment in less than 5 months.Most graduates from both institutions were happy with their jobs but need improvement in their skills. A database had also been put together as reference point for Tongan students, teachers and interested persons recording studies and researches that are related to Tongan education. This database can be updated regularly to help anybody but especially the students at both TIOE and TIHE.
