THE University of the South Pacific is offering hands-on Technical, Vocational Education Training (TVET), considered to be a key in a country's advancement in development.

A statement from USP yesterday reported a key benefit of the program was that it would provide training for skilled manpower, leading to Fiji's technological advancement and help ensure sustainability.

It reported that under the strategic plan, the TVET programs offered at USP would provide pathways to higher studies.

"Those programs which articulate into higher studies will also be internationally accredited," according to the statement.

It said the programs were specially designed for students to build on their skills and professional competence to ensure better results in the workplace.
