Transcript of Current Issues and Trends
Interest in this study since the MTSSR Open Day in 2008.
As a closer look at college open days where it is seen that most parents decide what their children should undertake WHY THE STUDY WAS CHOSEN THE RESEARCH TIMELINE CLARIFYING THE ISSUE The problem is that society (both parents and youths) have a certain negative behavioural reaction towards VTE in Brunei.
Is VTE not important enough in contributing to the country’s economy?
Is VTE not as academically achieving? Higher quality of students
Higher education level
Higher entry level
Availability of progression
It bridges the gap in current system for upgrading qualification
It must be realized that the changes with the education system in Brunei by implementing SPN21 is to benefit the students, industry and businesses. “to produce an education system of international standard, which fosters valuable and marketable skills and encourages life-long learning (LLL) orientation that will contribute to a harmonious and politically stable society.”
Aim to provide multiple pathways in education. Instead of a second option, it is another option! “a vision to make Brunei a recognizable nation for its well-educated and highly skilled people, the quality of life and a dynamic, sustainable economy.” One direction of the education strategy:
“Have first class secondary and tertiary education including vocational schools that produce experts, professionals and technicians required in commerce and industry.” Society needs to be willing to accept VTE and change their perceptions when it is proven to be as important to the country’s industrial economy as academic achievements. CLEAR STATEMENT OF CENTRAL ISSUE “The public's impression of technical and vocational education in the country has changed drastically in recent times, from an institution for dropouts to a well-perceived educational institution that produces highly valued and accepted qualified individuals needed in the nation's rapid development of industries and businesses.”
