EPP 13: Introducing Public-Private Partnerships in Education

  • GNI by 2020 (mil)
  • Projected jobs by 2020

This EPP supports the Ministry of Education (MoE)’s blueprint to transform technical education and vocational training (TEVT) in Malaysia, through which the Ministry targets a 10% growth in TEVT enrolment in 2015, from 5% currently.

This will be achieved by collaborating with the private sector to buy seats in private TEVT institutions for highly specialised programmes such as aviation and mechatronics.


  • Teach for Malaysia, a not-for-profit organisation aimed at ending education inequality in the country, was approved as an initiative under this EPP in December 2014.
  • Under the PPP programme for students with Special Education Needs, 71 seats were purchased with Berjaya University College of Hospitality in 2014 - 18 seats in Penang and 53 seats in Kuala Lumpur, while 42 seats were purchased with the Asian Tourism International College in Sabah.
  • The MoE purchased 400 seats through its Special Education Needs Department. The Ministry also bought 1,300 seats for various vocational courses in private institutions nationwide.
