The resources are available for you to download and use as required. These resources are provided free of charge and do not replace official Vanuatu Qualifications Authority accreditation forms.

The format of each resource differs depending on its purpose. You can alter the resources to suit your training provider’s particular needs and requirements.

Some of the resources are in template format where you need to add information and details that are relevant to your proposed course. Some of the resources are sample documents that you can use to plan activities. And some are information documents to help you throughout the accreditation process.

The Vanuatu Qualifications Authority would like to encourage you to take advantage of these resources and make use of them.
