There is a need in the education system for teachers to be encouraged to continue to learn in the space of learning for the better serving of the future generations of Fiji, through online platforms.

Permanent Secretary for Education, Selina Kuruleca told fijivillage News that open and distance learning is a pathway that the Ministry is looking into to enhance teachers for learning.

Kuruleca says disasters can occur in different forms day by day, but as teachers, they need to find an advanced solution to the issues, so that it does not affect the learning of our children.

She says the focus of the consultation is to see how the Ministry for Education can develop a framework.

She adds this framework will not only allow face-to-face but also online learning for in-service teachers.
