The Cook Islands Tertiary Training Institute

UNEVOC Centre (Uni/Research) since 2015

At the Cook Islands Tertiary Training Institute (CITTI) we pride ourselves on our ability to identify opportunities, overcome challenges and work with and for our communities – work that is occurring within a rapidly changing environment – literally. Climate change; an aging workforce; new technologies; a tougher business environment with an increased emphasis on entrepreneurial activities; the need for higher level qualifications to meet the country’s employment needs; the need to create a seamless transition from secondary school to tertiary training; meeting the ever growing needs of our youth; the need to ensure qualifications are portable to the global market; the need for all islands within the country to have access to tertiary training; meeting National, Regional and Funder policies and priorities – all these factors affect the things we do.
