Perak to help 655 SPM absentees enrol in TVET

IPOH: The Perak government will assist 655 students who missed the 2023 Sijil Pelajaran Malaysia (SPM) examinations, ensuring their continuation of studies in the Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) field.

State education, higher education, youth and sports committee chairman Khairudin Abu Hanipah said the state Education Department and other relevant parties are currently tasked with locating these students.

“The department’s priority is to identify them, considering some may already be pursuing their careers.

“If everything goes smoothly, we will facilitate their enrolment in TVET studies, offering opportunities for skill enhancement, knowledge enrichment and future career development,” he said here yesterday, Bernama reported.

On May 30, Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi urged SPM school leavers, particularly the 10,160 who did not sit for the examinations, to explore TVET studies for a fresh start and promising career avenues.

Khairudin, expressing confidence, pointed out that over 60% of educational institutions in Perak offer TVET-related studies, indicating a feasible path forward.
