SUVA, Fiji (Radio Fiji News, Jan. 5) - The Fiji government has agreed to employ all graduate teachers from Corpus Christi Teachers Training College.

The agreement is a result of talks between the Education Ministry and the Catholic Education Board - which runs the college.

The ministry's Deputy Secretary Ram Chandra says unfortunately this is not the same with Fulton College - which is managed by the Seventh Day Adventist Church.

"We have finalized our decision with the Board that we will continue to take teachers who are Corpus Christi graduates just like in the past," Chandra said. "Fulton College is a private institution and they were there to train the teachers of the Pacific region not only for Fiji teachers. So in the past, when there was a vacancy, we have recruited teachers, there's no question about the quality of the teachers coming out of Fulton, but starting from 2003, we were not able to recruit their teachers. There was no memorandum of understanding like Corpus Christi’s had that upon graduation, we will find a job for them."
