KEPALA BATAS: The rural and regional development ministry aims to raise the minimum salary for technical and vocational education and training (TVET) graduates from RM1,500 to RM2,000.
Minister Ahmad Zahid Hamidi said TVET not only teaches conventional subjects but should also train a competent workforce in line with Industrial Revolution 4.0 (IR 4.0).
“What I’m doing is transformation… for us to move towards IR 4.0. The government is committed to raising TVET standards,” Bernama quoted him as saying.
A new policy will also be formulated to revamp TVET education, Zahid said during a TVET community chat session at the TVET@KKDW 2023 Expo.
The deputy prime minister also shared that 92.5% of TVET graduates managed to secure jobs.
