Tuvalu government request for teachers from Fiji
The Tuvalu Government has submitted a request to the Fijian Government under the Fiji Volunteer Scheme (FVS) for the engagement of nine retired school teachers to teach Maths and English at primary school level.
This request was raised after a series of meetings between the Permanent Secretary Public Service Commission, Parmesh Chand with the Ministry of Education Officials from Tuvalu and with the High Commissioner, Lutelu Favae and on receipt of endorsement from the Prime Minister and Minister for Public Service, Commodore Voreqe Bainimarama.
Chand said the request is also to process the logistics of identifying teachers prior to signing the Memorandum of Agreement two weeks’ time.
“The priority area of need identified by the Government of Tuvalu’s Ministry of Education is in the primary education. Teachers will be engaged to teach literacy and numeracy at that level,” Chand said.
He said the FVS has since advertised in the newspapers and radio seeking retired school teachers for this programme.
Retired school teachers who are willing to indicate their interest must first register their details with the National Employment Centre (NEC).
