KOTA SAMARAHAN: The Malaysia Education Blueprint 2015-2025 is in its final stage of refining before its implementation on April 7 nationwide, Ministry of Education’s consultant for Malaysia Education Blueprint (Higher Education) Prof Dato Dr Salleh Jaafar disclosed yesterday.

He also said the ministry was gearing itself for the implementation of the blueprint, which is the aspiration of academics, students and the ministry.

Speaking before the briefing on the third roadshow of the Malaysia Education Blueprint 2015-2025 at Universiti Malaysia Sarawak (Unimas) here yesterday, he also said by the end of the roadshow about 99.99 per cent of ideas and aspirations for the education blueprint from the Malaysian education community should have been gathered.

He also said there was still ample time to collect more ideas on enhancing the blueprint before the roadshow ends.

Meanwhile, he said academics from institutions of higher learning have a very important role in ensuring that the 10 principles outlined in the blueprint are disseminated to their students to ensure they graduate as holistic and well-rounded persons with a desire for life-long learning.

On the other hand, Unimas vice-chancellor Prof Dato Dr Mohamad Kadim Suaidi said continuous improvement and adding values to the country’s education system is good for nation building.

According to him, transformation of the education plan is a legacy of a country that not only involves today’s graduates but also the young people in the future.

He pointed out that Unimas through its eight faculties with 42 undergraduate programmes and 67 post graduate programmes (research and course work ) is taking the standard and quality of its graduates seriously to ensure that their qualifications are recognised by Education Accreditation Council and Malaysia Qualification Agency (MQA). He disclosed that starting this year, Unimas offered programmes and contents comparable to foreign countries like Higher Order Thinking and Creative Skills (HOTaCS).

The director of Higher Education Leadership Academy (AKEPT), Prof Dr Mohd Majid Konting, said the roadshow this time hoped to enlighten academics in institutions of higher learning on the direction and the importance of the blueprint to prepare them for the implementation of the plan.
