Governance in Solomon Islands

The Ministry for Education and Human Resources Development (MEHRD) is responsible for managing primary and higher education in the Solomon Islands. There are national, provincial and community levels of secondary education while technical and vocational training (TVET) and adult literacy programmes are administered by the Provincial Non-Formal Education (NFE) offices. Solomon Islands College of Higher Education (SICHE) provides teacher education and offer courses in industrial development, finance and administration, nursing and paramedical studies, marine studies and natural resources as well as first-year university courses. The National Education Board was re-established in 2004 to help manage several education reform and development programs funded by the EU, Australia’s Aid Programme (AusAID) and New Zealand’s Agency for International Developement (NZAID) including Pacific Regional Initiative for the Delivery of Basic Education (PRIDE) and the Education Sector Investment and Reform Programme (ESIRP) which aim to improve literacy and access to basic education.
