Our team of staff is made up of young and energetic qualified Solomon Islanders who are committed to help you succeed in your study. In total, we have nine (9) members in our team—seven (7) full-time staff, and two on a part-time basis.

All our teaching staff are content specialists and have contributed immensely to the development, improvement, and delivery of our programmes. Overall, our common goal is to help you develop and acquire solid foundational knowledge, skills and scholastic attributes to help you succeed in your higher education endeavors in future.
