The presence of these institutions not only allows for more competition, but also provides greater choice for parents and students alike.
April and May were big months.
The Malaysia Education Blueprint 2015-2025 (Higher Education) aka the Higher Education Blueprint was launched on 7 April, to replace the National Higher Education Strategic Plan (2007-2015) which had run its course.
The launched marked the culmination of a 3 year effort, involving collaborative and consultative engagements with over 100 stakeholder groups, 2300 focus groups, 10,000+ stakeholders, and global education experts and organisations such as the World Bank, Scopus and OECD.
The Higher Education Blueprint outlines 10 Shifts that will guide our nation’s higher education landscape for the next 11 years. The 10 Shifts address key performance issues in our Higher Learning Institutions including a focus on outcomes for students in academic and TVET pathways, the academic community and the institutionalizing of lifelong learning.
