The Australia-Pacific Technical College (APTC) has been listed as an approved institution under the education assistance provided to students who want to pay their tuition fees from the Fiji National Provident Fund (FNPF).
The new development is welcomed by APTC,says Carol-Anne Blecich, APTC’s Director Strategy and Development, as it will provide Fijian citizens with more options to access funding for further studies.
“In addition to having the opportunity to apply for a scholarship at APTC, Fijian citizens will now also be able to access FNPF funding to apply as a fee-paying student which increases the options they have for studying at APTC,” she added.
The approval by FNPF is an indication of the quality of programs offered by APTC and supports the standing of APTC as a solid organisation with strong systems and processes in place to ensure students are well-supported.
APTC is one of only seven approved institutions listed for education assistance under the FNPF.
APTC is an Australian Government funded initiative designed to deliver training in order to increase the supply of skilled workers in targeted sectors in the Pacific region. APTC has campuses in Fiji, Samoa, Vanuatu, Papua New Guinea and Solomon Islands.
