More than 25 Trainers from Pakataura village, Tasmalum South Santo area 1, have participated in a building training program coordinated by Vanuatu Institute of Technology (VIT) and accredited by the Vanuatu Qualifications Authority (VQA).
This is a flexible training program with the community that reduces costs while trainees are being trained on the job as they acquire competency.
Acting Principal of VIT, Wade Evans said, “The important thing is to ensure the quality of training is kept so there is constant support from the Youth Training Centre who is working closely with Vanuatu Skills Partnership to ensure that is paramount”.
The 25 trainees, consisting of both males and females, have gone through the theory part of their training and are now ready to implement the practical part of the training with the assistance of professional builders to complete the Sanma Provincial Council house in South Santo Area 1, Tasmalum.
Meanwhile, chairman of chiefs from South Santo Area 1, chief Tavuilandui Ropey, made an urgent call to all men, women and youths from Tasmalum area to work together with these young trainees.
The Council house is expected to be completed by September this year.
