In Papua New Guinea, responsibility for managing components of different education sectors falls variously to national and provincial government and to communities. In all but vocational training, control of the core curriculum remains with national government. Associated with the diversity of cultures, it is claimed that the paths to development adopted by provincial governments require locally specific skills in their labour forces. Local control of the vocational training curriculum is intended to ensure that these are met. In the context of the decentralisation of services elsewhere, this paper discusses the implications of this policy in terms of the status of the activity and the gendered structures of its implementation and effects.
