    |     Danial Norjidi     |

    THE Ministry of Education (MoE) recently launched its Five-Year Strategic Plan for 2018-2022, which aims to ensure the education system stays pertinent and continues to deliver value.

    The Strategic Plan was launched during the opening of the School Leaders’ Convention 2019 at Universiti Brunei Darussalam on February 26, 2019.

    As reported on February 27, in an overview of the plan, MoE stated that its main priority lies in shaping students into knowledgeable, responsible and highly skilled individuals who can quickly adapt to the needs of a constantly evolving environment and contribute positively in the development of a dynamic economy.

    It was shared that the plan involves the implementation of a holistic education system, guided by the values of Malay Islamic Monarchy (MIB), where a meaningful curriculum and the relevant education programmes will be delivered in a series of key developmental stages, from early childhood to post-secondary education.

    Based on a review of the MoE’s strategic direction and contributions from all relevant stakeholders, strategic objectives have also been identified to outline ministerial efforts in the plan.

    These strategic objectives are three broad actions which will set the focus and guide strategies over the next five years, while the MoE continues to evaluate its strategies and leveraging on opportunities and strengths in addressing any future gaps and constraints, to stay responsive and relevant to its mission.

    According to information on the MoE website, these three strategic objectives are, ‘Transform our organisation human resources towards a performance driven culture’, ‘Provide equal and equitable access to quality education’, and ‘Enhance shared accountability with stakeholders in the development of teaching and learning’.

    The website also notes that the strategic plan was launched as part of the ministry’s commitment and dedication in supporting Vision 2035 to produce educated, highly skilled and accomplished people.

    Minister of Education Dato Seri Setia Awang Haji Hamzah bin Haji Sulaiman commented on the strategic plan during the opening of the School Leaders’ Convention 2019, saying, “It serves to help us in realising our vision of ‘Quality Education in a Dynamic Nation’.

    “This strategic plan serves to guide our priorities so that they remain coherent and clear,” he explained. “It aims to ensure that our education system stays pertinent and continues to deliver value in an era of rapid social, economic and technological transformations.

    “Universal access to quality education continues to become one of our three strategic objectives, emphasising equality and equity for all learners,” the minister affirmed.

    He highlighted that ministry-wide efforts in actualising a responsive ecosystem to address diverse learning and the developmental needs of learners and teachers are crucial for this.

    “Organisational excellence, with competent human resources and robust monitoring and evaluation, are also integral to this plan,” he said.

    “We also need to stimulate shared ownership and accountability with our stakeholders, to achieve our strategic objectives.

    “With clear strategic objectives and initiatives outlined in the Strategic Plan, school leaders should be able to create action plans to bring your schools towards achieving the ministry’s vision that complement the nation’s Vision 2035,” added the minister.
