MORE than 50 students can now benefit from the new $1.1million training facilities at the Valelevu Youth Training Centre.

Fiji’s Minister of Youth and Sports Laiseania Tuitubou said the new facilities would support young people to fulfill their aspirations and would act as a catalyst to inspire many to dream and achieve their dreams.

“In terms of equality of opportunity in training, the centre is encouraging more women and persons with disabilities to enroll together with more of our Indo-Fijian youths so we can develop a more diverse and inclusive offer,” Mr Tuitubou said.

The fully-equipped double storey building will provide music and cultural classes free of charge up until certificate level 4.

The training program is now recognised by the Fiji Higher Education Commission and those who graduate are able to find work, often in the uniformed services or in the entertainment industry.

The training centre now also have a new recording studio known as the Tuitubou Studio.
