Provincial Skills Development

Provincial Skills Development

Provincial skills development and workforce planning in geographically disadvantaged areas is a priority area for the Government. Specific sectors identified in the Province Skills Plans 2015-2018 include agriculture, horticulture, forestry, livestock, fisheries and aquaculture, tourism and hospitality, construction and property, transport and logistics (including maritime), and cross-sector (governance, leadership, management, information technology, business).

Vanuatu Government Scholarships will seek to actively support Provincial skills development outside of the urban economic and commercial centre of Port Vila. If you wish to be considered in the category of Provincial Skills Development you must:

  • Be currently working in a specific Provincial area (outside of Port Vila); OR plan to return to the specific Province on completion of your study program to contribute to its ongoing skills development;
  • AND
  • Have a letter of support from your Province Secretary-General, specifically within the context of the relevant Province Skills Plan 2015-2018.
