*More than a hundred students from twenty schools in the Central division will soon undergo a two week Schools Employment Exposure Programme (SEEP).

This comes as the Employment Ministry launched the initiative in Suva today with an aim at ensuring students experience the world of work.

Ministry’s Permanent Secretary, Salaseini Daunabuna says half of Fiji’s population is under the age of twenty-seven and youth unemployment rate stands at 18.1 per cent.

“This programme is targeted at year 11 students to be placed in work places as observers so that you’re able to gain employment skills and have an exposure to the world of work. This we hope will assist you in your future career choices and the career paths that you craft for yourselves.”

She adds the schools will be divided into two batches and the first ten schools will start off the programme next week Monday.


Meanwhile, the Fiji Commerce and Employment Federation along with the Education Ministry and International Labour Organisation welcomed the programme.

A memorandum of Understanding was signed between the organisations.
