FODE COURSES IN PROVINCES MEET EDUCATION NEEDS: PM

Prime Minister Hon. James Marape,  has urged Provincial Administrators (PAs)  who attended a two-day workshop on Public Sector Reforms and Cost Control in Port Moresby to take the Flexible Open and Distance Education (FODE) policy of Government back to schools in their respective provinces.



RECOMMENDED: Flexible Open and Distance Education (FODE) Enrolment


Mr  Marape made the call at the closing of the workshop, held from 19 – 20  October at APEC Haus. He told the PAs that they are very important assets in the Government’s push to provide effective services to the majority of the people who lived in rural areas.

“You are very important people out there, who are in touch with over 80 percent of our citizens.

“I would like to make two tasks for you to take back and work with your provincial administrations.

“Next year and onwards, we want to roll out to the rest of the country, especially in our high schools, the Flexible Open and Distance Education (FODE) courses and course materials.

“Provincial Administrators, take note of this:  Go back, work with your Provincial Education Advisors to make high schools become venues for FODE as well.”

Every year, about 10, 000 school-aged children dropped out of the formal education system and parents were unable to empower them to seek further education outside of the formal system.

He said as a Government, the Marape/Basil Government would like to expand FODE in a big way to cater for the educational needs of this particular group of young Papua New Guineans.

Mr  Marape urged the PAs present to make their high schools focal points for FODE delivery.

“Through  FODE, school-aged children who dropped out of the formal system would still get education right at home, without having to spend to come to the urban areas for education.

“They will also be able to sit for National Examinations with students who go through the formal system to go into colleges,” he added.

The Government is also considering introducing entrepreneurship courses through FODE to encourage them to go into Small Medium Enterprises (SMEs).

How to prepare for an exam

The ‘how-to revise for an exam’ tips focuses on preparing for an exam as an important first step to effective study. Understandably, if you do not gather the right revision materials before an exam, you’ll have problems revising the fundamental facts your need to answer a certain exam question.

It is like building a house. The housebuilder must/should: 

  • have a plan (List of topics), 
  • collect the right materials s/he needs, 
  • know when to use the materials (timetable), and 
  • build the house (organise notes by subject for revision). 

You will not (and CANNOT) go wrong if you prepare the materials in good time, make your revision notes and use them effectively when you are studying for an examination.

Take a look at the full article about how to prepare (and revise) for an exam and aced it with flying colours.
