The government is set to introduce new courses in the field of electric vehicles (EV) and solar energy within the framework of Technical Education and Vocational Training (TVET), with a substantial allocation of RM6.8 billion, particularly in Melaka.
Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Dr. Ahmad Zahid Hamidi revealed this initiative, in alignment with Melaka’s focus on renewable energy technology, which is witnessing heightened interest from investors.
As the Chairman of the National TVET Council, Ahmad Zahid emphasized that this represents a significant opportunity for Melaka, given the increasing demand for a skilled workforce in the renewable energy sector and the growing need for high-tech job opportunities.
He further explained that this initiative has the potential to attract investors not only to Melaka but also to other states with similar requirements in the field of renewable energy, thereby empowering the TVET sector in Melaka.
The allocated RM6.8 billion will not only support the development of TVET institutions nationwide but will also facilitate the introduction of new courses related to renewable energy.
Currently, Malaysia hosts 1,334 TVET institutions dispersed across the country, operating under the jurisdiction of 12 different ministries, all with the common objective of providing essential skills training to the population.
