KUALA LUMPUR: The decision to accept UEC holders for the PISMP programme specialising in Chinese language at Teachers' Training Institutes (IPG) has been ongoing since 2011, says Education Minister Dr Mohd Radzi Md Jidin.

He said that the programme was even continued under the Pakatan Harapan administration when the Education Ministry was led by Dr Maszlee Malik (IND-Simpang Renggam).

"When you were the minister, the programme continued.

"No matter what, the policy existed, by accepting UEC holders at IPG specialising in Chinese language to cater the demand at vernacular schools. That is clear," he said in reply to a supplementary question from Maszlee during Minister's Question Time.

Maszlee had asked the Ministry's stance regarding whether to accept UEC holders for the PISMP programme at IPG.

To the initial question, Radzi said that the Education Ministry was committed to improve the quality and competency of teachers nationwide.

"On the curriculum aspect, the Ministry will continue to update the PISMP curriculum quality, so it will be in line with the current education system's needs.

"The overall review of the teacher's training curriculum will be done every four years.

"The latest review began in 2019 and is expected to be completed by 2021.

"The new curriculum will be implemented in June 2022," he said.

Radzi also noted that for monitoring and continuous improvement purposes, the Education Ministry will continuously perform the assessment on teachers who graduated from the PISMP programme at IPG.

"After one year being deployed at schools, the Education Ministry will get feedback from school administrators on the performance of IPG graduate teachers.

"Based on the response between 2015 and 2019, the performance of new teachers who graduated from IPG is excellent and fulfilled the need of the schools, with an average score of 92% and above.

"In general, the performance showed that school administrators are satisfied with the new teachers who graduated from IPG," he said.
