Sarawak 2015 Education & Training

The Malaysian government is committed to transforming the country’s education system to produce a cadre of graduates armed with the creative and critical thinking skills necessary to thrive and lead in the 21st century’s increasingly international workplaces. The approach is tailored to each area of the country. In Sarawak, which has a higher proportion of rural schools than Peninsular Malaysia, the ministry is prioritising support by providing funds for upgrades to the state’s education infrastructure, among other programmes. Policymakers and educators are clearly on course in planning for the changes Sarawak Corridor of Renewable Energy and other projects will bring to the people of Sarawak. Implementation is key and it is crucial that all of the state’s people gain from the private and public investment now being made in the state’s education system.
