In the late 1980s, rapid economic growth in Malaysia led to an acute shortage of skilled manpower, especially in the manufacturing sector. The skill shortage worsened into the 1990s, leading to the establishment of the Cabinet Committee on Training.


In its Final Report published in 1991, the Cabinet Committee recommended sixteen (16) broad policy directions in order to reform and strengthen the training delivery system. The proposed measures are grouped under three (3) main policy objectives -


a). Improving the responsiveness of public training to market demands;
b). Expanding the role of the private sector; and
c). Strengthening linkages between training and technological changes.


Today, skills training is undertaken by various public agencies and institutions under Federal or State authorities. The four (4) main ministries responsible for carrying out pre-employment skills training are the

  • Ministry of Human Resources through the Manpower Department,

  • Ministry of Education, through its Technical Education Department,

  • Ministry of Entrepreneur Development,

  • Ministry of Youth and Sports. 

In the private sector, pre-employment skills training is carried out by an even more diverse and broad spectrum of training providers, covering wide-ranging courses and qualifications.
