The Ministry of Education and Training mission is to provide student-centred education that is accessible, relevant, sustainable, responsive and of good quality, to guarantee every young person:

  • A well-managed and accountable education system which focuses on building the human resources of Vanuatu, improving learning, living, and working opportunities, and enabling young people to contribute to the productive sectors in both rural and urban areas.

The Ministry has three major objectives:

  1. To improve the quality of education
  2. Increase equitable access to education for all people at all levels of education in Vanuatu

Australia has a direct interest in a prosperous and stable Vanuatu. Australia is Vanuatu’s largest development partner, providing approximately 39 per cent of total Official Development Aid (ODA) to Vanuatu (excluding China which does not publish ODA figures). The Australian Government works closely with the Vanuatu Government to support economic growth, stability and poverty reduction in Vanuatu.

Early education and essential health services are areas where Australian investment makes the biggest contribution to human development in Vanuatu. Australia works with the Vanuatu Government and communities to increase access to, and the quality of, early education to improve literacy and numeracy. Working with the Vanuatu Government, we aim to improve access to resilient, quality essential health services, with a focus on workforce development and primary care. We are prioritising improvements in maternal and reproductive health.
