1 Championing Scientific Discovery, Transforming Innovation 30 March 2011 Lavender Room Level 2, Block C5, Complex C MOSTI, Putrajaya OPEN DAY PROPOSED ESTABLISHMENT OF MALAYSIAN BOARD OF TECHNOLOGISTS (MBOT)

2 Cabinet Committee on HCD recommended establishment of MBOT on 20 August BACKGROUND Cabinet approved the recommendation on 29 September Policy statement in 10th MP to establish MBOT 3. NKEA-EPP 5: Establishment of MBOT (Owner: Secretariat of BOT, Academic Management Unit, MOHE) 4.

3 Technical and vocational education and training (TVET) is critical, and the 10th Malaysia Plan (MP) emphasises this SOURCE: 10th Malaysia Plan 1 Skilled workforce defined as those with at least SKM 3 certificate, diploma, or degree certification semi-skilled defined as those with at least SKM 1 or 2 certification, while unskilled workers have only SPM ceritification. A 40% target is projected by Ministry of Human Resource, and a 50% target committed to in the 10th Malaysian Plan 2 Target based on MOHR estimates, different from 10 th Malaysia Plan published targets of 50% 40% 2 skilled workforce 1 by 2020 Target Improving the Perception of TVET and Attracting More Trainees ▪ …a national media campaign will be developed and rolled-out… ▪ 69 out of 88 technical schools will be converted into vocational schools … six new vocational schools will be established by ,031,000 more managers & professionals ▪ …standardise TVET curriculum... ▪ Recognising and equating various levels of Malaysian Skills Certificate with certifications issued by TVET providers ▪ …a Board of Technologists Malaysia will be established ▪ Malaysia-Japan International Institute of Technology will be established as an independent institute Upgrading and Harmonising TVET Curriculum Quality in Line with Industry Requirements 1,434,000 more skilled workers ▪ Highly experienced industry personnel…to become instructors... ▪ Part-time working arrangements will be expanded ▪ …Centre for Instructor and Advanced Skills Training (CIAST) will be expanded.. ▪ A new centre for instructor skills training will be developed to add a further training capacity of 800 instructors each year Developing Highly Effective Instructors 482,000 more semi-skilled workers ▪ The current funding approach of TVET will be reviewed…provide financial assistance to students to study at Malaysian Skills Certificate Level 3 ▪ The performance rating of TVET institutions will be utilised when making decisions for buying places…in private TVET institutions ▪ A total of RM 150 million will be set aside to train 20,000 school dropouts during the Plan period Streamlining Delivery of TVET Policy guidelines from the 10th Malaysian Plan

4 Across the NKEAs, nearly 1 million jobs requiring vocational certificates or diplomas will be created over the next 10 years SOURCE: Labour estimates from NKEA labs, dated July 8 th 2010 Oil Gas &Energy Palm Oil Healthcare Wholesale and retail Financial Services Tourism Electrical and Electronics Telco Agriculture Business Services Diploma Vocational No. of jobs required by NKEAs by 2020 Cumulative, ‘000 Ability to attract?Examples of top jobs Insurance agents Hotelling staff Convention hall exhibition service staff Clerical staff Aerospace technicians Production worker E&E technician Hospitality workers Nurses Store keeper Sales supervisor Feedlotting supervisors Farm supervisors Technicians Chemical engineering Solar maintenance technician Mechanical engineering supervisor Insufficient supply today and in 2020 Sufficient supply today, potentially not in 2020 Sufficient supply today and in 2020

5 On the supply side, there is also a significant pool of students for expansion of TVET 1 Number of students leaving the national education system could be higher, up to 80k SOURCE: MOHR Segment Size Today Thousands Segment description ▪ Basic education dropouts, i.e. students leaving school prior to taking SPM Basic education dropouts Projected capture rate in % 30 1 ▪ Unskilled workers entering workforce without further qualifications, out of which 40k have no SPM credits 30% 100 SPM leavers directly entering workforce ▪ Foreign students coming to Malaysia for Skills Training ▪ Malaysian Skills training curriculum exported abroad ▪ Foreign students coming to Malaysia for Skills Training 16, Foreign students ▪ Upskilling of those already in workforce 20% 8,400 Lifelong learning for unskilled and semi- skilled workforce ▪ SKM 1 and 2 holders who do not currently go on to pursue SKM 3 and 4 50% 40 Higher level SKM 3 and 4

6 Growth in vocational training has stagnated over the last 5 years, and at current rate we are not on track to deliver 10th MP targets SOURCE: JKMPMI, Feb No. of Certificates Year 60,000 50,000 40,000 30,000 20,000 10,000 0 SKM 1 SKM 2 SKM 3 SKM 4 SKM 5 ▪ Vocational training has faced little growth over the past 5 years despite various policy recommendations aimed at increasing the attractiveness of the sector ▪ The number of certificates awarded for SKM1 and SKM2 has declined and levelled off over the last 5 years Sharp increase in 2003 is due to the establishment of PTPK in 2001

7 In contrast, vocational training has been growing at 11% within the region, and we are lagging behind other countries who have successfully implemented vocational training programs Enrolment rates of post secondary vocational/ skills courses, selected Asian countries 1 Million students % p.a SOURCE: UNESCO, press searches Vocational training is increasing in the region Examples of countries with strong vocational training programs ▪ Over 600,000 students were enrolled in Canadas vocational system in 2007 ▪ Programs focus on developing skills training (Skills Link) and links to industry (Youth Internships; College and Community Innovation Program) ▪ Approximately 150,000 vocational and polytechnic students in 2009 ▪ Education network spans 20 universities and over 25 polytechnics ▪ In 2006, Australia had approximately 1.7 million vocational students ▪ Vocational training spots are guaranteed for those under 25, and future entitlements will be made for older Australians to up-skill or re-skill ▪ Singapore had over 105,000 vocational students, which is ~30% more than the number of university students in

8 A Board of Technologists is proposed to regulate, monitor and accredit all TVET programs From the 10th Malaysia PlanSpecific proposal for the Board of Technologists TVET certificates have yet to be fully recognised as entry qualifications into higher education institutions, and there is currently no single TVET certification system in place. … …To accelerate the recognition of these certifications, a Board of Technologists Malaysia will be established. This recognition will encourage institutions of higher learning including TVET institutions to offer technology- related courses in line with the requirements of a high income economy ▪ Facilitate the registration of technologist ▪ Regulate professional conduct of a technologist ▪ Accredits all TVET programs Mandate ▪ Chairman ▪ Secretary ▪ Registrar ▪ Professionals from Public and Private sectors ▪ Representative from relevant Board Composition ▪ Accreditation ▪ Registration ▪ Monitoring and Quality ▪ Training and Education ▪ Examination and Qualification Sub-Committees ▪ Registration, Application for registration process ▪ Assessment and Accreditation of qualification ▪ Conduct and Ethics of Technology Professionals ▪ Promotion and continued learning Standing Agenda

9 Malaysia spends relatively little public funds on TVET compared to other countries with a dual-pathway education system Malaysia 5.7% Singapore 17.9% Finland 18.3% 9 SOURCE: Finland Ministry of Finance Budget Review, Statistics Finland, Malaysia Budget 2010, Singapore Budget 2010 Vocational spend as a % of total public education spend Vocational spend itemisation (USD bn) $1.0 $0.6 $ ▪ Vocational training 0.2 ▪ Polytechnics 0.8 ▪ Polytechnics and tertiary arts institutions 0.2 ▪ ITE - Institute of Technical Education 0.4 ▪ Polytechnics and community colleges 0.1 ▪ Skills institutes - e.g. MARA, Kemahiran Belia Negara 0.03 ▪ Skills development centres & training TotalSubtotal
