B’ville gets Australian training


Fifty teachers have upgraded their qualifications by participating in an Australian and internationally recognised course at Bougainville Technical College.
Speaking at the graduation last Friday, Nicola Simpson, second secretary (education) from the Australian High Commission in Port Moresby commended the graduates for their commitment to improving vocational and further education in Papua New Guinea and the Autonomous Region of Bougainville.
“This graduation is special because it marks an important step forward in strengthening the capacity of the country’s technical schools, business colleges and polytechnics,” Simpson said.
The 50 participants include 18 women, almost one-third of the group.
The Papua New Guinea-Australia partnership strongly endorses gender equity in Papua New Guinea’s education sector because it has proven beneficial for individuals, communities and the nation.
