Department of Education
Training and educating the People
of Nauru is the Government of Nauru and the Department of
Education's priority to prepare and equip Nauru's future
generations for the challenges ahead.
Our Mission is to ensure that;
- Every Nauruan is literate and numerate and recognizes the
importance of, and the right to education.
- There is access to, and equity in education and training and
that standard are comparable to the highest in the region, and
- To ensure that students leave the Nauruan education system
enriched and equipped to be productive members of the workforce, to
be qualified, to access further specialized training opportunities
outside Nauru and to be independent individuals.
To nurture students in Nauru to
achieve academic excellence through training to develop Nauru's
future leaders and entrepreneurs. As former President Scotty (2005)
stated, the Nauru Sustainable Development Strategy (2005-2025) is a
platform for a "...vision of a future where individual, community,
business and government partnerships
contribute to a sustainable quality
of life for all Nauruan."
The Department of Education goals
are outlined under the National Sustainable Development Strategy
(2005-2025)or the NSDS which states: "The Framework for learning
and environmental development in the Education Sector through the
Foopath for Education and Training Strategic Plan for 2008-2013,
will lead students from Secondary School to leave school as a
confident citizen to live and contribute to the Country's complex
and global networked society."
The Department of Education is the
vehicle of commitment and opportunity to provide excellent and
quality life long learning for all.
