Minister for Education Aseri Radrodro

Minister for Education Aseri Radrodro says the 2023-2024 National Budget will contribute significantly to the development of our education system and enhance our nation's human capital.

While supporting the budget, Radrodro says the budget allocation for the Ministry of Education is a testimony to their commitment to providing quality education for all Fijians.

He says they are dedicated to empowering their students with the knowledge and skills needed to succeed and will continue to work tirelessly to improve the educational landscape in Fiji ensuring that every child has the opportunity to reach their full potential.

He further says that the Ministry will be working closely with Higher Education institutions to offer courses that meet the labour market needs to address areas of skills shortage.

He says in the past few years the education sector has faced a lot of challenges from within the Ministry such as amendments made to the staffing structure, minimal planning and mentoring in the last 14 years, and workload of teachers without proper compensation.

He says they are also re-establishing a training department to assist in training and identification of the areas of need for training staff that have been an urgent need in the ministry.
