Teachers and education officers retraining program

In addition to the English proficiency test, an integrated instrument called 1Unified Instrument is being developed to assess the competency level of all education officers and teachers nationwide.

Teachers and education officers who do not meet the competency level will be sent for retraining, said Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin.

The trainining programme will help improve teaching professionalism, learning skills, knowledge and quality teaching as part of the Malaysian Education Blueprint 2013-20125

Experts from the Institutes of Teachers Education (IPG), Aminuddin Baki Institute (IAB), English Language Teaching Centre (ELTC) and various departments of the ministry would be used as facilitators to improve the professionalism led by the Teacher Training Division (BPG)
