On Tuesday 7th May 2019, Vanuatu Qualifications Authority (VQA) monitored the accredited courses' outcomes and delivery for Pacific Vocational Training Centre (PVTC). It is one of the steps required to do when conducting an external quality audit of courses provided by the registered provider.
Once the self-assessment done, the provider must summarise the findings of its internal monitoring in the Annual Internal Monitoring Report. This report is one of the key documents an external quality assurance panel will use when auditing or externally monitoring an accredited course.
- Mr Stephen, trainer for Cert IV in Electrical Engineering
- Mr Iliakimi Manua, trainer for Cert IV in Mechanical Engineering
Both trainers are Fiji nationals.
Finally the session ends with an interview with the PVTC manager, Mr Wade Evans, who is a professional in his trade from Fiji.
Mr Wade also explains there was one disabled person who enrolled for one of their program but couldn't continue since the learner did not get the financial and material help he was promised from an organisation. He was assured to be provided bus fares for travelling home to school and vice versa, and also a pair of safety boots. PVTC is working on getting back the learner on track by contacting the organisation who is supposed to help the learner.
PVTC was established in 2016 and first held its graduation in November 2018 where 2 of its graduates were females.
VQA continues to make sure PSET providers are delivering quality courses and recognised qualifications through registration with VQA and accreditation of courses.
