Plan for innovation centre in every higher learning institution in Sabah

22nd November, 2019

KOTA KINABALU: The Sabah Ministry of Education and Innovation has planned to establish an innovation centre in every higher learning institution in the state.

Its minister Datuk Dr Yusof Yacob said that this was important as it would enable students to be more innovative and creative.

“Just like universities in the United States, China and Singapore, the centre will enable students to share ideas,” he said when answering Sukau Assemblyman Datuk Saddi Abdul Rahman during the State Assembly sitting here yesterday.

He also said some students still lacked confidence and communication skills especially in English. He said the teaching methods in higher learning institutions must be improved.

“We also want established universities, especially Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) institute to open up branches in Papar,” he said.

Meanwhile, when replying to Kiulu Assemblyman Datuk Joniston Bangkuai, Dr Yusof said Sabah needed to produce more skilled local workers in the oil and gas industry.

This is because currently, only a small number of Sabahans were working in the oil and gas sector. “We will provide funds for our local people to take up courses related to the field,” he said.
