The Fiji National University is working towards realigning its short courses into accredited micro-qualifications that are responsive to industry needs.

Some FNU academics took part in the two-day training on the development of micro-qualifications.

FNU’s Acting Vice-Chancellor Dr William May says the training was part of the University’s efforts to continually develop its programmes to meet industry demands.

He says they need to continuously streamline and renew their courses and subject portfolios, based on national and regional skills needs, and robust evidence of employer, labour market and student demand.

FNU says micro-qualifications provided flexibility for businesses and trainees because it ensures they can undertake courses in a shorter period at a reasonable cost.

FNU’s Pro Vice-Chancellor Learning and Teaching Professor Lisa Harrison says this will provide the University a great opportunity to forge a flexible learning pathway for students, whether new or those already absorbed into the workforce seeking to reskill themselves.
