Claude Tupou signs contract as Education CEO following further negotiation

Claude Tupou has signed his contract yesterday Tuesday 31 to officially become the new CEO for Tonga’s Ministry of Education and Training (MET).

This came after Tupou agreed to quit as acting CEO in March and became Deputy CEO for Secondary Schools, a  position he previously held.

The government announced at the time the shift was to allow further negotiations on Tupou’s contract agreement.

MET said this morning Tupou has signed “his contract yesterday, thus his contract as the new CEO for Education and Training was effective as of yesterday, 31 May 2016”.

“He will be stationed at the Ministry’s Head Office, Vuna Road as from today, 1st June 2016”, the statement said.

Sometimes when a business is growing, it needs a little help.

We are the largest New Zealand-based Tongan news service, and our stories reach Tongans  wherever they are round the world. But as we grow, there are increased demands on Kaniva News for translation into Tongan on our social media accounts and for the costs associated with expansion. We believe it is important for Tongans to have their own voice and for Tongans to preserve their language, customs and heritage. That is something to which we are strongly committed. That’s why we are asking you to consider sponsoring our work and helping to preserve a uniquely Tongan point of view for our readers and listeners.
