In a statement, SODELPA parliamentarian Mikaele Leawere said he received complaints from students claiming to be enrolled in classes this year but unable to complete their courses.

Mr Leawere said students believed that Aptech’s services were to cease to allow for relocation, however, five months later and students still had not been updated on their classes.

“Despite students following up with the school and raising concerns, it seems to be falling on deaf ears.”

A team leader with the Fiji High Education Commission, Mr Akuila Savu, confirmed to Newswire that Aptech was registered on March 06 this year.

Mr Savu also said that the Commission was currently investigating some complaints against Aptech.

Newswire was unable to contact any representative from Aptech in Fiji.  Questions have been sent to the parent company in India.
