Make TVET accessible to the economically disadvantaged


I LAUD Human Resources Minister M. Kulasegaran’s call on small and medium enterprises to hire those with technical and vocational educational training (TVET). Globalisa­tion has made TVET more relevant as employers’ appetites for skilled workforce increase.

But as someone who’s been in the TVET business for the past 23 years, I think the government should not look at promoting TVET in isolation, eg building more training institutes or raising enrolment there. There’s a whole ecosystem that goes into lifting TVET education in Malaysia to the next level.
