AN executive team from the education ministry in Papua New Guinea has expressed interest in the mainstreaming of the Technical Vocational Education Training (TVET) education in schools in Fiji.

The team who met with their counterparts here in the country also expressed interest in exchanging or recruiting TVET teachers from Fiji to help facilitate the programs in PNG.

Team leader Peter Kant said they found processes of a teacher's registration and challenges in maintaining a Fiji Education Staffing Appointments interesting.

Mr Kant was positive that future agreements between the two countries would be confirmed once the reports were presented to PNG's Minister for Education.

Adviser Dr Cameron Nobbs congratulated the Ministry of Education in Fiji for the achievements and gave his well wishes for the progress of the ministry in future.

Education permanent secretary Dr Brij Lal said the PNG team had wanted to see how the education group was functioning and look at some of the initiatives that they could probably go and modify in their country.

Dr Lal said they were looking at the different sectors of the ministry.
