5,430 offered spots in teaching programme


NILAI: A total of 5,430 students have been invited to enrol in the Bachelor in Teaching Programme (PISMP) in all Institutes of Teacher Education (IPG) around the country, says IPG Student Enrolment and Placement Unit deputy chief director Shamsul Sanirun.

He said all students will have to complete the five-year programme before being placed in schools to be determined later.

“The enrolment of students is based on the conditions set by the ministry, among which is having distinctions in at least five Sijil Pelajaran Malaysia subjects with credits in Bahasa Melayu, History and English.

“Students will also have to fulfil the conditions for their specialisation. They will serve as teachers by 2024,” he told the media when met at the launch of PISMP new students’ registration day at Technical Education Campus by Institute of Teacher Education rector Dr Rusmini Ku Ahmad.

Yesterday, 445 students – 111 males and 334 females – registered at the campus. — Bernama
