By 2020, all teachers must possess a first degree before they can join the teaching profession.

This was contained in a report of the Education Ministry’s Interim Strategic Education Plan 2011-2020 to improve the overall quality of teachers. At present, they are only required to complete the post-Sijil Pelajaran Malaysia (SPM) teachers’ training course as a minimum requirement to join the profession.

The ministry planned to pick only top-scoring university graduates to fill about 20 per cent of trainee teachers by 2015.
