Plan to revamp TVET lauded


THE establishment of the special Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) task force headed by Nurul Izzah Anwar is a step in the right direction. A revamp is long overdue in addressing the many shortcomings in the implementation of TVET courses.

From the reports that 208 out of 269 national schools offering Pendidikan Vokasional Menengah Atas (PVMA) have not been accredited as Malaysian Skills Certificate (SKM) training centres, leaving 5,504 school leavers last year in limbo, “PVMA programme put on ice” (The Star, June 21) and “TVET curriculum to be streamlined” (The Star, June 23), it is evident that the current TVET programme was not planned properly. Lack of coordination among too many agencies and ministries has resulted in the current predicament.
