Driving future success


The Samoa Qualifications Authority (S.Q.A.) yesterday received support from Bluesky Samoa to promote the availability of information on career choices for secondary school students throughout the country.

The assistance from Bluesky came in the form of $10,000 to allow the Career Advisory School Roadshow 2014 to happen. Sponsorship and Event Coordinator, Tonu’u Paul Smith, said the company was delighted to be able to help.

“This is a good opportunity for us to invest in our youth’s education and to empower them for the future, as they will be the leaders of tomorrow,” he said.

“Bluesky will also make use of this opportunity to share with students the career opportunities on offer at Bluesky as a prominent telecommunication company in the country.

“We want to inform the youth about any and all the opportunities that will be available to them upon the completion of their studies.”

Acting Chief Executive Officer of S.Q.A, Easter Manilla Silipa acknowledged the support from Bluesky, noting that such support will ensure young people of Samoa are given opportunities to make the right choices about their chosen careers.

According to Ms. Silipa, this is not the first time they have received help from Bluesky.

“The C.A.S School Roadshow 2014 will feature presentations by selected professions to inform and share their knowledge and experiences to help students understand particular subjects to study for careers of their choosing,” she said.

“This will ensure better employment views and a better future for students when they leave school”.

Maotaoalii Aliisolia, a Senior Sergeant who was present during the launch, said the Roadshow is a great opportunity to share some of his experiences with the students.

“Just this year, a lot of people have applied to become police officers during the recruitment that we had,” he said.

“The Roadshow will help people who applied to be well aware of the requirements they need to satisfy if they want to pursue a career in a business or an organisation they wish to work for.

“It’s important that students are aware of what they are taking and the requirements they need to get there”.

S.Q.A. and Bluesky started the road show last week.

“At the moment, we are now targeting Year 12 and Year 13 students both in Upolu and Savai'i,” said Mrs. Silipa.

“Hopefully, with the continuous support of Bluesky and other organisations that want to help, we will be able to extend our services to not only students but also employees who want to expand their knowledge in the field that they are working in.”
