A TOTAL of 197,000 students will be exposed to personal money management and investment in Fiji schools by next year.
And teachers are being encouraged to assess their students in a manner that focuses on their strengths.
Deputy secretary Professional at the Ministry of Education Nemani Drova said this was the aim of the last secondary schools workshop held at the Holiday Inn in Suva over the past two days.
Representatives of 14 Financial Education (FinED) Champion Schools from around the country were trained in assessment areas at Forms Five and Six.
He said teachers from Class One to Form Five were being encouraged to focus on formative assessments, which was a critical tool in helping students to understand how they could improve.
"Parents and the community also play major roles in this regard," Mr Drova said.
"We are at this point where we have realised that to fully identify the potential of each student, teachers, parents and the community need to work together to assist the development of students."
