KUALA LUMPUR, 11 FEBRUARY 2020 - The British Council in Malaysia is currently working on an initiative in the area of technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET). This programme, with the theme of "Improving Work Opportunities For Young People In The Commonwealth" or "Improving Work, Relaying Knowledge", aims to improve the employment prospects of young people, including those from disadvantaged backgrounds, by piloting and introducing new approaches to employer led skills development.


The following institutions had implemented 6 months of working in clusters and developed pilot projects that emphasised on employer-led education :

1.     Politeknik Muadzam Shah, Pahang

2.     Kolej Komuniti Gerik, Perak

3.     Institut Latihan Perindustrian Mersing, Johor

4.     Kolej kemahiran Tinggi Masjid Tanah, Melaka

5.     Institut Kemahiran Belia Negara Kuala Langat, Selangor

6.   Institut Kraf Negara, Selangor


In this regard, IKBN Kuala Langat was involved in two panel sessions :


On 11:45 am

In summary, this project allows us to compare practice and approaches across the countries involved and creates a platform to support developments in key areas of interest. I-WORK has given the British Council the opportunity to move further into this space, and to drive change. Through I-WORK and the opportunities generated by TVET leaders meeting, brilliant large-scale ideas have been formulated and plans for ambitious pilot projects and intervention.
