GRADUATES from the Technical Vocational and Education Training (TVET) studies will find employment faster than graduates with higher degrees.

Chief of TVET-FNU Dr Isimeli Tagicakiverata said there was a lot of demand for skilled workers in the hospitality and service industry, construction industry and manufacturing and agriculture.

"These are key areas identified by government for human resource development and for our national development," he said.

"Add to that the fact that, historically, graduates from FNU with trade certificates and diplomas have found jobs all over the world because of the high demand for specific skills such as welding, plumbing, engineering and so forth.

"Thousands of applications have been received and the response has been tremendous because of the TVET scholarship funded by government with a grant of $5million for FNU-TVET programs."

Dr Tagicakiverata said they received applications from all over Fiji, from the outer islands such as Taveuni, Qamea, Ovalau, Kadavu, Yasawa, Beqa and all provinces of Viti Levu and Vanua Levu.
