Technical Vocational Education

Vocational education is a skills-oriented education offered primarily to students completing Grade 8, others dropping out from post primary institutions and the wider community. The Manus vocational education and training centre programmes are designed to provide skills that are relevant for community development and for preparing individuals for meaningful and peaceful coexistence with others.
