Besides that, counselling teachers also play a big part, whereby they have been briefed on the latest career trends so as to advise secondary school students on their possible future career paths.

The Education Minister stressed that her ministry is committed to motivating students to continue their studies for the betterment of Malaysia, saying,

“Other steps taken were through organising career programmes in cooperation with public and private universities, as well as government agencies, with scholarships and student loans also being offered.”
