A pilot phase of the National Anti-Corruption curriculum will be launched in the Northern division today.
Fiji Independent Commission against Corruption Public Relations Officer Nandni Vandhana says this is partnership with the Ministry of Education’s Curriculum Development Unit.
Vandhana says sixty teachers and students will be trained during the pilot phase.
She says students from Year five to Year 13 will be taught about anti-corruption in subjects such as Social Science, English, Accounting, and History.
“FICAC is developing a manual and it will have modules so for Year Five we have a particular module with activities so it’s in social science and English so when the students when they do have social science an English classes, they would be able to participate in those activities. It’s not very complicated, it’s very short and just be able to help them identify areas which could be conducive to corruption.”
This will also be piloted in school in the Central and the Western division next week.
Vandhana says by next year they are hoping to launch the programs in all the schools.
