Never too old

LEARNING never stops, so says 54-year-old Losalini Matavesi.

The mother of three children graduated on Friday with a Certificate Four in Training, Assessment and Evaluation from USP's Centre for Vocational and Continuing Education (CVCE).

"I can't remember a time when I never studied," Mrs Matavesi said.

She adds the certificate adds to four other qualifications already in the bag — a Diploma in Education, Degree in Arts, MBA in Marketing and a Certificate in Tertiary teaching.

"I believe equipping yourself with the proper qualifications is important and I will always promote this to everyone who listens.

"I would like to advise those school leavers, those that are not doing anything, to pursue studies at tertiary level, especially in the CVCE programs because it will prepare you for a job and higher education."

Mrs Matavesi is employed at the Fiji High Education Commission and as a consultant trainer at USP.

"My qualifications before allowed me to set exam papers at secondary school level but this certificate will now allow me to assess at a tertiary level."
