The VAC qualifications are designed to provide graduates with direct career pathways into specific agricultural sectors. The qualifications are based on current government strategic policies and directives, industry needs and international shifts.
The qualifications are all founded on the Vanuatu Qualifications Framework to ensure national consistency.
The training package has been designed to allow for trainees to enroll in a full qualification, either full time or part-time, upon completion of which a trainee would graduate with the qualification award. Applicants may elect to undertake modules of interest/benefit and enroll as a short course trainee. These individual modules may be later combined with other modules to achieve full accreditation for the award. The courses are designed to allow for distance education.
