VITE Vision and Mission Statement

VITE is the sole national teacher training institute providing training to over 300 candidates. Based in Malapoa, Port Vila we currently offer Cert.IV in Vocational Education and Training Teaching, and plan to offer the Cert.IV in Early Childhood Care and Teaching, the In-service Diploma in Primary Teaching, the Bachelor of Education in Primary and Secondary Teaching in 2021 onwards.

As an initial step in VITE’s reform agenda and as a starting point for strategic planning, the VITE staff reviewed their overall purpose and goals and from this generated new vision and mission statements more in line with future planning. These statements were approved by VITE Council in October 2014 and are as follows:


Our vision is to become Vanuatu’s Centre of excellence in teacher education and to produce teachers as leaders who will be equipped to learn and serve local communities using information and communication technology and international best practice.


Our mission is to

  • produce quality teachers
  • provide quality training and learning to the community
  • Tpromote an effective and supportive environment
  • enhance technological support to the community
  • engage in educational research activities

Our values

Professional values for teachers are measured according to valuable characteristics like

  • being responsible, fair, faithful, trustful,
  • having the right attitudes, integrity, respect for others and self,
  • display honesty, diligence, loyalty, cooperation, justice, commitment,
  • display effective teaching procedures,
  • use appropriate assessment and tools for the students and
  • professional conduct of behaviour.

These are reflected across all of the Professional Standards and are fundamental to all registered teachers regardless of post.

VITE Institutional Graduate Profile

Unlike the vision and mission statement, our graduate profile defines and specifies our core set of cognitive, personal, and interpersonal competencies that graduates should have when they graduate from VITE. Co-created with input from key stakeholders, as well as being guided from Delores Pillars of Learning, this profile is a clear visualization of priority goals for teaching and learning that can be easily communicated to trainers, parents, departments, and staff to align their collective efforts. Below are our four (4) sets of our Institute Graduate Profiles.
