Covid-19: Teachers more prepared in second phase of 'Catch Up Plan', says don

KUALA LUMPUR: The implementation of the second phase of the Catch Up Plan programme by the Education Ministry (MOE), which began Sunday yesterday (Jan 9) until Feb 28, is expected to be better than the previous one, says Dr Anwar Ahmad.

The senior lecturer at the Centre of Community Education and Well-being, Education Faculty, Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia (UKM), said this was because teachers were now better prepared in implementing the programme, including in identifying students according to their level of mastery.

"... teaching strategies will be focused on the students’ ability and I am confident that the Catch Up Plan this time around (will be) better implemented then before,” he said when appearing on the "Malaysia Petang Ini" programme on Bernama TV Monday (Jan 10).

Anwar said the implementation of the first phase of the Catch Up Plan from September to December last year was seen to be less effective, among others, due to the rotational school attendance of students.

He also suggested that a support programme be implemented for students who need additional rehabilitation after the Catch Up Plan programme ends on Feb 28 to ensure no learner was left behind.

The Catch Up Plan was introduced with the aim of bridging the learning gap when home-based teaching and learning (PdPR) was implemented following the Covid-19 pandemic. - Bernama
