Morobe’s Provincial TVET Inspector, Mr John Moses, said parents will continue to pay fees for students attending TVET institutions in the province, in order for their children to attend class.
This is due to the delay of Tuition Fee Free payments into schools.
Mr Moses said a decision is yet to be approved by the Provincial Education Board regarding the fee.
The delay of the Tuition Fee Free payments into schools has been a concern since the fee subsidising program was established by the Government in 2012.
The Provincial TVET Inspector for Morobe, John Moses, says parents will pay fees this year in order for their children to attend class.
There are currently 11 TVET institutions in Morobe, including 3 Catholic-run agencies.
The schools have 139 teaching staff assigned to these institutions.
However, there are still vacancies that the Provincial Education Administration will soon have teachers attend to.
Morobe’s Provincial TVET Inspector has called on all teachers to return to their respective schools today.
Teachers should have their Resumption of Duty Summary Sheet or RODSS signed and delivered to the district education managers to send to Port Moresby.
