CETCs graduates publication released PDF Print E-mail

This year the Centre released a publication dedicated to all CETC graduates and, specifically to Taromi Solomona of Cook islands, who graduated in 2008 and died on duty as Island Councillor for Manihiki in March 2011.  

This publication is part of the CETC’s strategy to document and analyse the impact of its training programmes. The strategy is designed to continually enhance the structure, relevance and focus of the training and capacity building provided by the Centre.  

Focusing on graduates of CETC from 2004 to 2010, this publication charts their work placement on their return to their home countries and their perception of the CETC training they received. This publication discusses their lives and work as a living testimony to the benefits they gained from studying at CETC.

CETC’s programme development has taken a step further with the establishment of curriculum experts for the different subject areas.

The first teams to meet were the Health/Nutrition and Agriculture teams.  The experts were selected because of their technical expertise and experience in both teaching and work in their respective sectors.  

The Health and Nutrition team comprised Mrs Jimaima Schultz, manager of the Fiji National Food and Nutrition Committee; Dr Jimaima Lako, Lecturer, Faculty of Science, Technology and Environment at the University of the South Pacific (USP); Ms Vulori Sarai, Nutrition Coordinator at USP and Mrs Atelini Koroi, Health and Nutrition instructor at CETC, with online input from Karen Fukofuka, Nutritional Adviser from SPC’s Public Health Division.

Thirty-one women from sixteen Pacific Island countries graduated from the class of 2011 on Thursday, October 13. The Community Education Training Centre’s 48th Graduation Ceremony was held at the CETC campus in Narere. 

The certificates were presented upon completion of the seven-month training programme, Applied Community Development and Management Studies, offered at two qualification levels (Certificate Level II and III). 

The chief guest, French Ambassador Giles Montagnier, applauded CETC for continuing to revise and adapt its programmes to meet the emerging needs of Pacific women from grassroots communities.

 He congratulated the graduates on their achievements and hard work that had opened up new opportunities to advance and sustain the livelihoods of communities and villages in their home countries.
