Curriculum framework equips students with relevant skills

THE newly implemented Fiji national curriculum framework provides the pathway and ensures children have the right skills and competencies to take on the challenges and opportunities of the 21st century.

The Curriculum Development Unit's Luisana Fotofili made the comments at a workshop between Education Ministry and Fiji National University officials in Lautoka.

"We at the Curriculum Development had to have a change of mind-set first," she said.

"We realised that to provide quality education, we need to have a quality curriculum. As a team we developed a vision and a mission statement. Our vision is to develop a quality curriculum that is flexible and responsive to changing needs of our children.

"This vision guided us to identify the way forward and the first and foremost was to revise the national curriculum framework."

She said the strengthening the curriculum processes initiated a thorough consultation process to allow the stakeholders to buy and take ownership over that same vision.

"We prepared a budget proposal to develop the syllabi from the national curriculum framework and the resources to support it.

"The education in Fiji will contribute to the spiritual, intellectual, cultural, social, emotional, aesthetic and physical development of students."
