The Organisation

The Vanuatu Skills Partnership aims to develop new approaches for a national skills system that better links skills training to economic outcomes within a quality assured framework.

Provincial Skills Centres, now incorporated into the structure of the Ministry of Education and Training, have been established by the Partnership to facilitate access to a range of demand-driven skills training and business development support.

The Partnership operates as a coalition for change within a complex local political environment.
