Curriculum does not meet job market demands Curriculums taught at schools in the Pacific region including Fiji do not fully meet the demands of the job market.

Pacific Island Forum programme director Zarak Khan in a press conference said digital literacy was a major challenge across the Pacific region.

He said a lot of computer classes rolled out across high schools and universities do not really respond to the needs of trying to facilitate a digital economy environment.

“A lot of the curriculums were rolled out across high schools, or universities do not really respond to the needs of trying to facilitate a digital economy environment,” he said.

“Also in terms of the types of investments that we have been trying to facilitate in the region. This is whether the Pacific Trade Invest Network or the different investment promotion.

“So, at the moment, the skill sets that are being churned out, don't fully meet the demands of the workplace, or the job market.

“We are hoping to work with decision-makers in this space to try and see how we can roll out programmes that will better guide the development of relevant curricula across the region.

“This is a very important issue, something that needs to be taken into account. I can see the benefits of eCommerce in Australia, they are still moving forward despite the lockdown,” he said.

He said some supermarkets in Fiji tried introducing online payments recently but unfortunately it wasn't at the pace and as advanced as one wanted it to be.
