Ten graduate from APTC with leadership skills
Ten people who underwent studies at the Australia Pacific Training Coalition (APTC) received their certificates on Thursday morning after completing a leadership and management course.
The 10 recipients of the certificates had completed the course Certificate IV in Leadership and Management and together with 21 others received statements of attainment for the leadership and management training units.
The APTC training comes courtesy of the Government of Samoa's stimulus package under its second phase COVID-19 recovery efforts.
One of the graduates from the APTC training, Georgia Strickland of Malie, said she was glad she took the course though she had to juggle other responsibilities while studying.
"I am really glad that I started this course about leadership and management," Ms Strickland said.
The graduate said when the course started in mid-February last year, she found it difficult juggling between school, her employment as well as looking after her family but she is glad it is done.
APTC offers a wide range of vocational courses that help their students obtain international qualifications that can develop their career with the necessary skills needed.
To sign up for these course a person is required to have prior experience and relevant knowledge and the industry experience that he or she wishes to train in. Some of these courses they provide include hospitality, carpentry, commercial cookery, plumbing and tourism.
The graduation ceremony is a result of Australia's Technical and Vocational Education and Training investment in the Pacific region which includes ten countries: Fiji, Kiribati, Nauru, Papua New Guinea, Samoa, Solomon Islands, Timor-Leste, Tonga, Tuvalu and Vanuatu.
The goal of APTC is to develop a more skilled, inclusive and productive workforce that enhances Pacific and Timor-Leste prosperity.
The award ceremony held on Thursday morning is an example of the the end product of the Australian Government initiative in partnership with Samoa in developing a competent and qualified workforce for the development of Samoa and the Pacific region.
