- Secondary school students in selected institutions can sign up for the National Dual Training System (SLDN) after their Penilaian Menengah Rendah (PMR).
- “The enrolment of students in the programme is expected to reach 15,000 by next year,'' said Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin at SM Vokasional Kajang yesterday.
- Previously, secondary school students who were interested in vocational training would have to wait until after their Sijil Pelajaran Malaysia (SPM).
- Muhyiddin added that the programme comprised a 70% practical component with host companies and 30% training at the educational institutions.
- Currently, it is only available at three vocational institutions located here, in Sungai Buloh and Batu Pahat.
- The programme will be extended to all 79 vocational colleges in stages by next year.
- The SLDN, which is a collaborative programme with the Human Resources Ministry, will see courses offered in up to 53 fields.
- Muhyiddin, who is also Education Minister, said the initiative was in line with the 10th Malaysia Plan and was crucial if the country were to produce highly-skilled workers.
