The Education Department is urging schools to follow the SLIP framework when using TFF Funds.

Acting Deputy Secretary for the Education Department Titus Hatagen said this will help schools have proper plans and also be accountable.

Mr Hatagen said, many schools do not follow the SLIP framework resulting in most schools having incomplete projects.

The Acting Deputy Secretary made this statement when leading a delegation from the Education Department to West New Britain recently for a visit to schools which have been receiving TFF funds in 2015 and 2016.

Hoskins Secondary one of the pioneer secondary schools is visible with TFF funding making tangible changes. Principal James Ravakai said funds have seen L-40 staff accommodations being built.

The head of the institution said nearly K135,000 has been used with some diverted to fuel expenses and labour.

According to Mr Ravakai, there have been significant developments in building additional classrooms and staff houses. Currently a 10-bedroom unit for single teachers is under construction.

However, the Education Department is urging school administrations and boards to follow TFF guidelines.

Many schools in West New Britain are on track in receiving TFF funding however there is an urgent need for proper planning.
