Update: 2:42PM IN its 10th year anniversary, Australia Pacific Technical College (APTC) has provided internationally-recognised Australian skills and qualifications to more than 11,000 Pacific islanders from 14 Pacific island forum countries.

Speaking at APTC's Samoa graduation ceremony, Samoan Prime Minister Afioga Malielegaoi said APTC's presence in the Pacific had provided Pacific islanders with the access to quality education.

"The graduands here today are an example of a job-ready workforce that is now equipped to make a difference and help drive social and economic development of this country," Mr Malielegaoi said.

The anniversary celebrations took place in Samoa yesterday coinciding with the graduation of 87 Samoan graduates from the college.

Other celebrations are being planned for APTC campuses in Fiji, Papua New Guinea, Solomon Islands and Vanuatu.
