"Dear Fijileaks Editor: The Fiji Technical College is a lot of Hot Air. How can they do skills training when they don't have proper workshops and training equipment? Does the Ministry have any idea what TVET is all about? FTC in Nabua has a budget of less than $30,000 to build a shed to conduct practical classes in. It took years and a lot of money to develop the TPAF to where it was before the interim government decided to merge it with FNU yet the Education Ministry wants to achieve the same in a few months. We are now starting to hear rumours that the FTC wants to take over the Technical Training Facilities of NTPC (The merged TPAF) as they are now realising the enormous cost of setting up their TVET training. As for now the so called skills training that the Minister is talking about are only theory classes. Attached is the advertised schedule of programs by FTC. They are not even attainment certificates, not aligned with any standards and are not worth the paper they are printed on. What is also disturbing is that they are offering the programs to Industry Workers thus duplicating the work NTPC is doing. To be fair, the idea of FTC was good but the implementation is a scam!"

Sounds like a dodgy racketeering training institute . But not surprising. It has become common to have dodgy dealings under the Bai- Kai order in Fiji.

mahen thinks he is clever with all his reforms. He is just making money for his government as his thesis is only 25 pages and about sugar.
