Update: 10:40AM FIJI will soon send a group of teachers to Tuvalu under the Fiji Volunteer Scheme (FVS).

This was confirmed by the Ministry of Information in a statement yesterday.

Public Service permanent secretary, Parmesh Chand said there were Fijian teachers serving in Marshall Islands, Nauru and Vanuatu.

Eleven teachers left our shores for Vanuatu a few  days ago to serve for a term of two years.

"There were 12 teachers in Marshall Islands and they decided to recruit six more at their own cost so there are totally 18 Fijian teachers in Marshall Islands; 12 under the FVS and six under their own funding arrangement," Mr Chand said in the satatement.

"There are six teachers in Nauru. They went last year and recently 11 teachers left for Vanuatu. Currently, we are also working on about nine teachers who will be going to Tuvalu."
