SUVA, Fiji (Fiji Sun, Jan. 13, 2014) – The Public Service Commission is looking at assigning six retired teachers to teach in Tuvalu under the Fiji Volunteer Scheme this month.

This would be the first batch of retiree teachers under the scheme to be assigned to teach in Tuvalu.

The Commission’s service delivery and facilitation director, Kelera Nukutaumaki, said they have advertised applications for retired teachers who possess a Bachelor of Education degree to teach numeracy and literacy to Tuvaluan schoolchildren.

Ms Nukutaumaki said under their policy teachers between the ages of 55 to 70 years, having a clear medical and police record, would be assigned.

Meanwhile, there are currently 12 retired teachers teaching in the Marshall Islands with six teaching in Nauru.

The teachers assigned to teach in Vanuatu will leave at the end of this month for a two-year contact.
