Teacher salaries increased twice in 7 years Government increased salaries of teachers and post holders twice in the past 7 years and also started paying Early Childhood Education teachers teaching 5-year-olds, Education Minister Premila Kumar stated in Parliament today.

In her contribution to the debate on the President's speech, Kumar said the vision of “transforming Fiji” has education at its heart and with  the commitment to improve quality of life by giving equal opportunities to all Fijians, the FijiFirst Government introduced
reforms in the education sector to benefit parents, students, teachers, employers, and the school committees.

She said free education grants have been provided, infrastructure of schools being improved, and schools are resourced with items such as computers, science models, library books, charts, PEMAC items to improve teaching and learning.

"My recent discussion with the school committees revealed their struggle in the past to pay 20% salary for grant-in-aid
teachers and to maintain school infrastructure."

"For example, Nawai Secondary School had to sell a portion of school land in those days to pay teachers salary."

"We have come a long way with a bold vision set by the FijiFirst Government to ease financial burden from the communities to run community owned schools."

"As part of the reform, this Government increased salaries of teachers and post holders twice in the past 7 years."

"Government will follow merit-based recruitment to ensure quality education is not compromised."

"Having said this, I do want to reiterate that the revised process of appointment is for new recruitment to fill currently vacant positions."

"Teachers who are in the system need not worry about this unless of course they apply for a higher position within the Ministry," she added.
