The Ministry of Justice and Community Services in partnership with Stretem Rod Blong Jastis mo Sefti (SRBJS) seeks to encourage an environment where staff actively maintain and develop their professional knowledge, skills and expertise. To support this aim, staff from Agencies and Offices in the Justice and Community Services sector and relevant non-government organisations, may apply for financial support through the Vocational Study Support Scheme (VSSS) to cover the basic costs associated with undertaking part time vocational study.

Interested applicants must complete an Individual Application for Part-Time Study. Please note that the application must be received at least 4 weeks prior to the due date for enrolment fee payments. For Semester 1 2018, applications will not be accepted after 5pm Friday 12 January 2018. Note also that the institution will have its own admission procedures that applicants need to fulfill.


The application must be justified on the basis of clear links between the individual's training needs and the proposed vocational or professional education, and also requires management endorsement.

Once an application is received by SRBJS, it will be assessed along with other applications as part of a competitive process and applicants will be advised promptly of the results. The complete application process is outlined in VSSS Application Procedure.


Staff from across the Justice and Community Services sector can consider this opportunity, and investigate the range of vocational and professional education offerings from Vanuatu Institute of Technology (VIT), University of the South Pacific (USP), Australia Pacific Technical College (APTC) and others.
