Abstract: This article examines the emergence of Non Formal Education (NFE) in Fiji, its current provision and the potential for school-based programmes. This requires an examination of the various learning systems and, in particular, the development of the formal education system, how it has acquired its high status and value in Fiji, and the inherent problems which have emerged. This article also provides a background discussion of the pre-colonial to postindependence education and the limitations of the formal schooling system.
