The Fiji Education Sector Program (FESP) is an aid and development project managed in partnership between Cardno Acil Pty Ltd, Education & Training International and Curtin University.

The Program is the result of an agreement between the Governments of Australia and Fiji with the goal for the Fiji Ministry of Education to deliver quality education to children in Fiji especially in disadvantaged and remote communities. FESP began in June 2003 on a five-year schedule that has now been extended to December 2009. It is considered an exemplar aid and development education project by AusAID.
The Department is committed to help Fiji look at WA practice and adapt these to suit the local context and needs. The Western Australian education system has many similarities with Fiji, particularly the challenges in providing education services to extremely remote areas; and the commitment to improving outcomes for all students including Indigenous students and those in disadvantaged and isolated areas.
FESP provides support directly to the Ministry to help address key reforms and priorities for Fiji’s education system. This includes building the leadership, planning and management capacity within the Ministry, improving curriculum relevance and flexibility and developing staff, curriculum and facility resources. FESP also offers study tours and work attachments for Ministry of Education Fiji staff to come to Western Australia.
