Cabinet has approved preparatory works for the establishment of an Education Commission to carry out a holistic review of our education system.

Prime Minister, Sitiveni Rabuka says this is a major undertaking of the People's Coalition Government to review the entire education system.

Rabuka says the Commission will make recommendations to improve the quality of teaching and leadership in schools, and ensure the curriculum meets the needs of our labour market.

The Ministry of Education, in consultation with the Office of the Prime Minister and the Solicitor General's Office, will develop a Terms of Reference for the Commission.

The Draft Terms of Reference will be published for the views of members of the public.

The final Terms of Reference will be brought back to cabinet for endorsement.

The membership of the Commission will be determined through an inter-ministry consultative process.

Cabinet has agreed that the National Education Summit be convened in the next financial year.

Rabuka says the Summit will bring together a wide range of stakeholders from government, non-government organisations, civil society organisations, communities, provincial administrators, faith-based organisations, industries and employers and individuals with experience in the education sector.

He says the Ministry of Education will work closely with the Office of the Prime Minister and the Ministry of Finance on preparatory work for the Summit.
