THE performance of graduate teachers from Bachelor in Teaching Programme (PISMP) offered at Teacher Education Institutes (IPGs) is at an excellent level and meets the schools’ needs.
Senior Minister of Education Dr Radzi Jidin (picture) said based on the assessment conducted by school administrators from the period of 2015 until 2019, the IPG graduate teachers had an average score of 92 per cent and above.
“The MOE (Ministry of Education) implements an assessment method on the PISMP teachers by obtaining feedback from school administrators one year after they had started teaching and generally (school administrators) are satisfied with the teachers’ performance and quality,” he said during Minister’s Question Time at the Dewan Rakyat here today.
He was replying to a question raised by Dr Maszlee Malik (Bebas-Simpang Renggam) who wanted to know the measures and initiatives taken by the ministry in maintaining and improving the quality of PISMP so that the standard of teaching will always be excellent.
Radzi said MOE was always committed to empowering teacher’s education by strengthening the PISMP programme including its candidate selection process and curriculum in order to produce trained and competent teachers.
