Pacific TAFE

Hello & Welcome to Pacific Technical and Further Education (Pacific TAFE)

Greetings and Welcome to The University of the South Pacific (USP), Pacific Technical and Further Education (Pacific TAFE) website. We trust that you will find our site informative and useful.

Pacific Technical and Further Education (Pacific TAFE) is a strategically amalgamated and integrated learning and teaching section, which offers high quality Skills Based Qualifications (SBQs), Foundation, and Preliminary studies.



The programmes provide employment opportunities at entry and para professional levels, pathways for higher studies at USP where approved, and career advancement for working people. The five learning and teaching units are;

  • College of Business & Commerce
  • College of Tourism & Hospitality
  • College of Arts & Humanities
  • College of Science, Technology and Environment
  • Workforce Development Training Unit (WDTU)

Pacific TAFE has achieved Registered Training Organisation (RTO) status with Australian Skills Quality Authority (ASQA).This means that Pacific TAFE can deliver qualifications which are accredited with Australian Qualifications Framework (AQF) and has global recognition by adding qualifications to its scope of registration.

The regional composition of staff and students, augmented by colleagues and students from outside the Pacific region gives Pacific TAFE a healthy diversity of nationalities, religions, cultures, ethnic groups and languages.

Pacific TAFE strives to bring internationally certified programmes in partnerships with international agencies to meet specific skills demand, which may not at times necessarily be met by university-credited programmes. Despite economies of scale being lower in the Pacific compared to developed economies, Pacific workforce should not be denied of certified programmes to bring out best practices in critically important areas. We are committed to fulfilling the challenge of providing the highest possible quality of education while addressing the changing circumstances and needs of the Pacific region. While we are pleased to be regarded as a good example of successful self-funding unit, we recognize that we must continue to be a dynamic institution responsive to regional and global developments.
