It’s never too late to pursue new knowledge, explore a curiosity or find other ways to expand your horizons.
This was highlighted by Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama while opening the eighth technical college in Lautoka this week.
Bainimarama says some Fijians may be currently employed and looking to advance their career path.
He’s encouraged those in these situations to take advantage of the course offerings at the technical colleges around the country.
“The opportunity to better you through education remains open to any and every one. We recognize that full-time course loads do not suit everyone’s schedules. And for some of you, the short courses offered in the evening may be more attractive. You can spend your nights learning skills such as cooking, carpentry, welding, engineering and other skills that you can develop in your free time. I urge you all to see how a few hours in the evening can add up and, over time improve your standard of living by opening up new career paths and increasing your incomes.”
Bainimarama says the technical college does not only represent an opportunity for young people.
Fijians at every stage of their life can and do benefit from a continued education and age is no obstacle to understanding.
