CETC 5 Decades of changing Women, changing families, changing communities, changing the Pacific. PDF Print E-mail

The Secretariat of the Pacific Community (SPC) Community Education Training Centre or better known as CETC is celebrating this week its 50th golden anniversary.  CETC had its humble beginnings 50 years ago as a home economics course and has over the years developed after five decades into an award winning program in community development and business enterprise.

CETC is unique in that it is the only residential-program that has existed to provide technical and vocational training for women in the community development sector. It has been training women and entrepreneurs of the pacific communities in a comprehensive, regional capacity building program, the largest number of graduates being from Fiji. CETC was the recipient of the Fiji Business Excellence Award both in 2010 and 2012, the latter being in the Achievement category.  

The majority of the previous students now work in service agencies both in government and non-government sectors to contribute to their national development goals.  The CETC has achieved significant milestones over its 50 years of service to the Pacific island countries and the most recent ones are being the first ever training programme in Fiji to be registered and accredited under the Fiji Higher Education Commission and Fiji Qualifications Framework.
