KUALA LUMPUR – The Education Ministry is coming up with the Malaysian Higher Education Sector Blueprint (PPPM-PT) 2015-2025 to give the national higher education system a quantum leap.
Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin said the blueprint will have 10 core thrusts, among others to produce graduates who are all-rounders, holistic and have the mind of an entrepreneur.
“It includes the provision of a robust action plan in order to address the challenges of the higher education sector to make Malaysia a global player and leading education hub at the international level .
“As with the national dialogue on the Malaysian Education Blueprint 2013-2025 which we held in the past, the process of preparing the plan will take into account feedback, new ideas as well as the views of the public and stakeholders,” Muhyiddin, who is also Minister of Education, said when launching the PPPM-PT Dialogue 2015-2025 here today.
“I want to emphasise that this plan should be comprehensive whereby the private sector will not be spared as almost half of the students enrolled in the higher education ecosystem are pursuing various courses in private higher education institutions,” he said. – BERNAMA
