Fourteen teachers from Fiji are already working in Tuvalu and another 16 will go next month under the Fiji Volunteer Service Scheme.

Tuvalu's High Commissioner to Fiji Temate Melitiana said the programme, which started in 2014, has had a positive effect on education in Tuvalu.

He said the teachers, some of whom had retired, were mostly former head teachers and brought a wealth of experience, knowledge and expertise.
