TANJUNG MALIM: Teacher quality issues must be addressed if Malaysia’s aspiration is to be among the top one-third of countries in terms of educational excellence, said Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin.
To that end, he said the Education Ministry had approved RM5mil for Universiti Pendidikan Sultan Idris under the National Innovation Centre Research Grant Scheme titled Development of a Teacher Education Model for Preparing Quality Teachers for the Future.
“UPSI has to formulate a model that can become a reference to produce quality teachers in the future,” Muhyiddin, who is also Education Minister said when opening the 14th National Education Convention.
He added that under the Malaysia Education Blueprint (PPPM) 2013-2025, efforts to produce quality teachers began in 2013 by raising the entry requirements for teachers by ensuring they were from among the top 30% of graduates.
Besides this, he said the Continuous Professional Development programme was also offered to teachers in a bid to uphold the status of the teaching profession as a profession of choice. Muhyiddin said PPM also widened the path for leadership and subject matter experts. — Bernama
