New TVET portal simplifies application process, says Ahmad Zahid


PUTRAJAYA: Applications for technical and vocational education and training (TVET) courses offered by agencies across 12 ministries will now be streamlined into one channel, says Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Ahmad Zahid Hamidi.

The Rural and Regional Development Minister said that he expected more than 100,000 applications and hoped that everyone who was eligible would be offered a place.

He said this after officiating the UP_TVET system of applications for TVET intake here on Monday (20 May).

The ceremony took place after a meeting between the 12 ministries chaired by Ahmad Zahid.

"The intake into TVET courses will be synchronised through a new system called UP_TVET which will be used across 12 ministries in charge of the institutions. The streamlining of applications through one channel is to avoid the confusion of applying through various TVET agencies.

"However, after the application process, should the candidate be successful, the courses at the institutes will be offered by the relevant TVET agency.

"In an effort to streamline the process for TVET applicants, the Human Resources Ministry has set up a TVET Madani portal which will be the one-stop centre for all information on TVET courses offered by the 12 ministries and accredited private agencies," said Ahmad Zahid.

Stating that there had been a favourable public shift towards TVET, the minister said that TVET Madani would also be the main data management portal, expected to be fully developed by 2025.

The Deputy Prime Minister pointed out that prior to this, the many channels for applications into TVET agencies caused confusion among applicants.

"The government then decided to streamline all channels into one main channel - cutting across 12 ministries and private agencies offering TVET courses.

"This system has actually been tested for the intake in January 2024.

"UP-Tvet offers two categories of applications - the main intake twice a year in January and July, and continuous intake throughout the whole year," said Ahmad Zahid.

Through this channel, the minister said that a candidate has the opportunity to receive more than one offer, although he or she could only accept one.

"The main intake involving TVET institutions under seven ministries offers 744 courses. The July 2024 intake opened for applications on 25 March and will be closed on 11 June. As of today, we have received more than 36,000 applications," said Ahmad Zahid.

The event was also attended by other ministers whose ministries have agencies offering TVET courses.
