Education Ministry plans to set up 500 Amanah schools by 2025

KUCHING: About 500 Amanah Schools, a joint programme between the Education Ministry and the private sector, will be set up throughout the country by 2025.

Education Ministry Deputy Director (Teaching Professionalism Development), Datuk Misrah Ibrahim said the programme was aimed at creating a school transformation model as a long-term strategic vision.

“Currently 30 schools have been selected to participate in the programme which covers primary and secondary schools at all levels of performance, with the objective of obtaining a sustainable level of achievement,” he said when officiating the 2014 Amanah School Programme Conference here today.

He said under the programme, the school management would be given more power to make decisions in the management of the school to encourage improvement of quality in teaching and learning among teachers and students.

“The schools will be given autonomy to draw up their own Standard Operating Procedures and make decisions on curriculum delivery, continuous professional development, finance and procurement as well as human resource development,” he said.
