Zahid: Govt drafting policy to empower and strengthen TVETThursday, 9 November 2023
NST20231109a
 

​KUALA LUMPUR: The government is currently drafting the policy to empower and strengthen Technical, Vocational Education and Training (TVET) to be presented to cabinet, says Deputy Prime Minister I Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi.

Ahmad Zahid said the policy was currently drafted by the national TVET secretariat under the jurisdiction of the Deputy Prime Minister's office and is expected to be launched by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Dr Anwar Ibrahim in February, next year.
 
"Since its inception, there has been no TVET policy; therefore, I have directed the development of one, which will be submitted to the cabinet for approval by January next year.
 
"I am very serious about empowering TVET education and will consistently advocate for its transformation into the predominant option for employers seeking to recruit skilled workers.
 
"Hence, the policy will cover various matters including the issue of minimum salary and the focus is the minimum salary for TVET graduates must be above RM3,000 per month," he said in his speech during the signing ceremony of the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) for the Malaysia-China Youth TVET Training
Programme at Parliament, today.
 
The programme, led by TANG International Education in China, will involve 200 skilled youth in various fields which will be sent to several TVET universities in the republic by next month.
