There are 2,795 students enrolled in the 13 Technical College campuses in Fiji.

Education Minister Dr Mahendra Reddy informed the Parliament that Lakeba based Ratu Sir Kamisese Mara campus which is the 13th Technical College opened earlier this year, is gaining popularity in the area.

Dr Reddy says there is a six percent increase in student enrolment from last year where 2,134 students were enrolled in 12 Technical Colleges.

“It is a three trimester program. Trimester one, they spend at the workshop, Trimester Two they are attached to an industry. For example if it is an electrical fitter mechanic student, they will be attached to an electrical company and if they are carpentry joinery student they will be attached to carpentry Joinery Company so entire trimester two they spend on the industry in training and in Trimester Three they come back.”

63 percent of the students enrolled last year were males while 37 percent were female students.
