KUALA LUMPUR – The Malaysia Education Blueprint (Higher Education) 2015-2025 will chart the transformation of Higher Education in the country.
Speaking at the launch of the MEB-HB, Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin said the main aim of the blueprint was to produce holistic and balanced graduates with an entrepreneurial mind.
Muhyiddin, who is also Education Minister, said that this would be achieved through the MEB-HB’s 10 main shifts.
These 10 shifts include developing holistic, entrepreneurial and balanced graduates, quality Technical Vocational Education and Training (TVET) graduates, financial sustainability and globalised online learning among others.
“The 10 shifts will build on the foundations of the Malaysia Education Blueprint 2013-2025’s five aspirations on improving access, quality, equity, unity and efficiency for the pre-school to secondary education system.”
“The blueprint is inclusive. Over 10,500 stakeholders from over 100 groups of stakeholders were engaged in its development,” he said, adding this included input from international organisations.
He added that the blueprint took two years to develop.
Muhyiddin also said the implementation of the blueprint is what mattered most.
“I will personally oversee the implementation of the blueprint to ensure it remains on track.”
“We will review progress regularly and publish annual reports.”
Muhyiddin added that the reports will be shared with international bodies such as the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation Nations to ensure transparency and accountability. – NST
