Detailed description of project Back

The overall objective of the Vanuatu Tourism Education and Training Project is to contribute to overall economic development and poverty reduction through growth of the tourism sector in Vanuatu. The specific objective is to improve capacity of VIT (Vanuatu Institute of Technology), Training providers and VIBA (Vanuatu Islands Bungalows Association) to deliver quality manpower, standard and services for the Hospitality and Tourism Industry in Vanuatu.

The project comprises four main components:

  • Planning, construction and Operation of the VIT Tourism and Hospitality Training Centre;
  • In-service Training Programs;
  • Rural Tourism Development Program;
  • Institutional Strengthening of the National Tourism.

Type of services provided

As per standard practice the evaluation focused on assessing relevance, efficiency, effectiveness, impact and sustainability.

Because this is a final, summative evaluation, special attention was paid to the impact and sustainability and to formulate recommendations which should be fed into, and applied in, both ongoing and future programmes. In addition focus was placed to the participation and contribution of an impact on the private sector.

The results of the mission were presented at a workshop at the end of the mission.
