The National Association of Private Educational Institutions declared that a RM200 million allocation by the government to the newly launched National Technical and Vocational Education and Training Policy 2030 or TVET is a welcome move.

They stated that the funds were essential to develop infrastructure and curricula and the TVET programs must be aligned to market needs and provide students with relevant skills and practical experience.

They added that the policy would transform the sector by developing a skilled and value driven workforce and upgrading the curricula is necessary to equip graduates with updated skills to make them competitive in the job market.

The association stated that the policy would transform the sector by developing a skilled and value driven workforce and its success depends on effective implementation, periodic updates to training methods and addressing the bias towards vocational training.

There was also a need to address barriers preventing individuals from pursuing TVET education by making it accessible particularly to marginalized and disadvantaged communities and to make it as attractive as academic routes.

The key strategies anticipated will include providing scholarships and grants to students in the low income groups and the promotion of TVET as a primary career choice through targeted outreach and improving infrastructure and resources.
