Allow Form 1 students to apply for TVET: Santiago
[Image: 20210619-technical_and_vocational_educat...y_pic.jpeg]

KUALA LUMPUR – Former Klang MP Charles Santiago has suggested that students be allowed to apply for technical and vocational education and training (TVET) as early as Form 1, and not after Form 3 as it is currently.

He said TVET encompasses formal and informal learning that prepares youth with the necessary skills and knowledge for the workplace.

Therefore, he said, students who are not academically inclined can apply for TVET at the start of secondary school.

He said this mechanism would allow students to acquire the necessary skills and foundation required when they complete their Form 5 studies, which can greatly help in reducing the school dropout rate.
