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.
