Vanuatu Qualifications Authority (VQA) advises the parents who seek to enrol their children in courses accredited by the Vanuatu Qualifications Authority Board, and offered by Post-School Education and Training (PSET) provider/institution in Vanuatu.

Under the VQA act No.1 of 2014, VQA is mandated to ensure a quality assured PSET through the registration of training providers and accreditation of PSET courses.

VQA works closely with the industry and the institutions to ensure that the courses that are delivered are accredited, which means that
๏‚ท They are developed using the National Competency Standards that are themselves developed in collaboration with industry, that way students graduate with skills that meet the industry needs;
๏‚ท They are aligned appropriately with the Vanuatu Quality Assurance Framework (VQAF) and that registered PSET provider can issue a nationally recognized post-school education and training qualification;
๏‚ท They facilitate pathways to other qualifications in Vanuatu or in the Pacific region;
๏‚ท Qualifications are recognized and are sealed โ€œofficially accreditedโ€.

VQA also advises all institutions that are not yet registered to contact the VQA office and start the procedures so that they can also have their courses accredited.
In addition, VQA urges registered providers that continue to deliver non โ€“ accredited courses to seek assistance from the VQA to apply for approval to deliver accredited courses.

VQA also reminds any registered provider that is delivering non โ€“ accredited courses that it is subject to breaching the Conditions of registration and the VQA [Amendment] Act No.36 of 1999, subsection12(1A) which states โ€œA registered provider must not deliver unaccredited courses.โ€

Currently, VQA has accredited 61 PSET courses from different registered PSET providers, listed below. The list of accredited courses is regularly updated on the VQA website: www.vqa.edu.vu
List of accredited courses and registered providers that were approved to deliver these courses.
The Chief Executive Officer of the VQA, David Lambukly, says โ€œThe Vanuatu Government has established the Vanuatu Qualifications Authority to regulate the Post โ€“ school Education and Training (PSET) sector in Vanuatu and to ensure that courses that are delivered and assessed in Vanuatu are quality assured, credible and recognised nationally and internationally. VQA is the right place where parents can seek information if they would like to enrol their children in a PSET institution.โ€

The CEO further alluded that โ€œfor transparency purposes, VQA added a menu in its website about the decisions of the Board in relation to PSET Sector in Vanuatuโ€.

Vanuatu Qualifications Authority is the sole national regulator of the Post-School Education and Training sector in Vanuatu.
PSET sector in Vanuatu means all providers or organisations that offer education and training that occurs outside of the Early Childhood, Primary and Secondary Education system using a structured mode of delivery.

Post-School Education and Training includes:

1. Higher Education Level at University;
2. Technical and Vocational Education and Training;
3. Theological Colleges and Religious Institutions;
4. Apprenticeship;
5. Non-Formal Learning;
6. On-the-job Training;
7. Pre- and In-Service Professional Training
