By Josepheen Tarianga
The Vanuatu Institute of Technology (VIT) has hosted its first Open Day successfully, despite the rainy weather.
Acting Principal of VIT, Wade Evans, said this Open Day is a milestone as it is their first and therefore a very special day for the institute.
“An Open Day is one of the main ways a tertiary institute sends out a strong message to everyone about its courses, its training facilities and the expertise of its staff,” Mr. Evans emphasised.
According to the Acting Principal, for students who will be leaving school soon, Technical, Vocational Education and Training institutes like VIT are the conduit to employment. Therefore, the Open day is an opportunity for the young people to explore existing opportunities.
He added by visiting VIT facilities and listening to the presentations, students will find a calling that will be their pathway for the rest of their lives.
The VIT Open Day showcased different programs that the institute has. Different schools attended and were invited to ask questions and receive information on the courses the institute offers to any interested students.
