  • Conclusion


Due to an increasing demand for technical personnel at both professional and semi-professional levels in the manufacturing and industrial sectors, technical and vocational education has evolved from very basic skills training to one which encompasses high cognitive knowledge involving the applications of mathematics and the sciences.

Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) in Malaysia are offered by both public institutions and private providers. Generally, providers conduct TVET via two modes:

  • Students are prepared through pre-employment training and education to join the work force by institutions which conduct TVET programmes
  • Workforce competencies are enhanced through TVET programmes (workplace training & education) conducted at the workplace
