This study provides a detailed analysis of the financing of technical and vocational education and training (TVET) in Fiji. The study team commenced its field investigations in August 2013 and completed them in October 2013. The Fijian Country Study Report into the Financing of TVET forms part of a region-wide program Research into the Financing of TVET in the Pacific, initiated under Australia’s international development assistance program in 2011. The aims of the program, as identified by its Research Brief, are to produce, in conjunction with host country governments and TVET stakeholders, a comprehensive empirical analysis of the existing systems for financing TVET in seven Pacific countries (Fiji, Kiribati, Papua New Guinea, Samoa, Solomon Islands, Tonga and Vanuatu), identify key financing issues within the region, and the policy implications they have for the future financing for TVET, to enable it to be more efficient and effective at both national and regional levels. The first task of the study team was to determine the scope of TVET in Fiji. The next tasks of the study team were to review the full scope of data available on the operations and finances of the TVET sector so defined, to assess its quality in terms of comprehensiveness, reliability, timeliness etc, to identify where gaps appeared and to devise means of covering those gaps within the time and resources of the study.
