We create international partnership projects to develop schools and TVET in Malaysia, raising standards of skills teaching, learning and leadership.

How we work for schools and TVET in Malaysia

By combining the talent and energy of UK and Malaysian practitioners, we support young people, teachers, institutions, employers and society to prepare for the future.

We work with UK, Malaysian and international:

  •  ministries and government departments
  •  schools, TVET colleges, management institutes, further and higher education institutions
  • employers, businesses and corporates e.g., Corporate Social Responsibility and sponsors
  • foundations and voluntary organisations

Collaborative networks and experience

Our programmes are developed in partnership, bringing layers of international insight, knowledge and experience to shape our strategies, making educational development solutions both innovative and relevant.

Specialist collaboration is identified from our extensive networks within the British and international education space. Our programmes span school, vocational and higher education, meaning we draw from a vast field of practice and expertise to design our projects.

Our networks give us a unique ability to identify and bring together the right partners to support Malaysia’s teaching and skills growth.

UK experience and expertise

Our collaborative approach creates opportunities for the UK vocational sector to further share and promote its expertise, experience and innovation internationally.

Collaboration makes for stronger connections between the UK and Malaysia across education, industry, science, technology and government.

How you can help us develop skills education for Malaysia

“Skills have a profound relationship with economic and social outcomes... [They are] key to tackling inequality and promoting social mobility.”

Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD)

The global Covid-19 pandemic has hindered enterprise and economic growth, reduced mobility and increased social isolation. With industry and enterprises in lockdown, skills and work-based educational schemes have been especially challenged.

Opportunities for post-pandemic vocational education

Yet the pandemic has pushed people to work, teach and acquire skills in new ways, to use different delivery or learning technologies or to rethink how new or existing skills need to be adapted for enterprises, new products or ways of working in the future.  Vocational education institutions are reviewing how the flexibility of delivery and adapted techniques imposed by the pandemic can now be developed to meet future skills demand across areas such as curriculum reform, delivery mechanisms or teaching capacity.

There are then opportunities in our post-pandemic world that emerge from the need for new skills growth and from the desire for people and institutions to innovate and advance.

Skills innovation through UK partnerships

International partnerships offer the opportunity to learn from new and diverse perspectives, share knowledge and ideas on how to progress. The UK is a valuable, global partner for sustainable skills education that can take people, institutions and skills strategies forward.

The British Council is open to new ideas for collaborative projects, from government initiated large scale teacher mentoring schemes to corporate volunteering projects, CSR strategies or employer-led initiatives that could benefit from UK input in partnership with individual skills specialists, vocational education institutions, local or international sponsors.
