Plans for QMS Coaching

Plans for QMS Coaching Signed

The VQA is working with the TVET program, funded by the Australian Government, to assist training providers that have been suspended. Plans are underway to offer a coaching program, which will help them establish a quality management system (QMS) for their organisation. Having a QMS in place is one of the major requirements for being a Registered Provider.


VQA Act Passed

VQA Act Passed by Parliament

The Vanuatu Qualifications Authority Act was passed by Parliament on 2 May 2014. It must now be gazetted before it becomes law. When this happens, the Vanuatu National Training Council will officially change its name to the Vanuatu Qualifications Authority, and it will take responsibility for all post-school education and training in Vanuatu, not just for the technical and vocational education and training sector.
