TEACHER preparedness is critical to the effective implementation and ongoing monitoring, assessment, evaluation and improvement of curriculum development and delivery, according to the Curriculum Development Unit's Lusiana Fotofili.

She told a workshop for Ministry of Education and Fiji National University officials in Lautoka, the network producing quality teachers needed to be strengthened.

"We need visionary teachers who have the knowledge of their subjects and understand the culture of the children they teach and use that knowledge to apply to real life," she said.

"We need teachers who can demonstrate unconditional love for the children they teach and be a role model in everything they do.

"We need teachers who can demonstrate the major learning outcomes stated in the National Curriculum Framework."

Ms Fifita said a shared vision was needed to strengthen the network in terms of the processes to develop the resources and training of teachers.

"We are working towards in-servicing teachers in the field and taking proactive efforts to work with the teacher training institutions to produce quality teachers."

During the workshop, the second edition of the Fiji National Curriculum Framework was presented.

The second edition will be used in 2014 and beyond with the syllabi developed and resources to implement the child-centred curriculum.
