KUCHING: Teachers and caretakers must double their efforts and find more creative, innovative and practical solutions to ensure SeDidik Sdn Bhd meets the expectations of all stakeholders, especially parents.
“They need to work together to meet challenges and continue to improve their knowledge and skills in order to impart knowledge to children effectively,” said Women, Childhood and Community Well-being Minister Datuk Seri Fatimah Abdullah.
“The same goes for the effectiveness of the curriculum which SeDidik needs to remain consistent in and be sensitive to current developments,” she added.
Fatimah said this in her speech read out by her ministry’s permanent secretary Datuk Dr Rashidah Bolhassan at UCSI Hotel Kuching during the SeDidik Appreciation Night 2022, on Saturday night (Jan 29).
“The role of SeDidik is very important in providing access to early education and childcare to the community in Sarawak in line with the aspirations and goals of the state government by 2030,” she said.
“To ensure SeDidik has detailed and strategic plans over the next five years, the SeDidik Strategic Plan 2022 – 2025 was established as a guide to achieve its vision.
“Three strategic themes have been developed, namely improvements in terms of operational excellence, programmes and facilities,” she added.
Apart from that, she said the use of technology would be given priority in the management and learning system as Malaysia was moving towards the Industrial Revolution 4.0.
Meanwhile, she was confident that efforts to improve the competencies of teachers by participating in the Kursus Asuhan PERMATA (KAP) and Malaysian Diploma Teaching Course (KDPM) would bear fruit.
“Their participation in these programmes will result in them leaping into the education field starting from early childhood education to university level.
“I hope SeDidik will be able to achieve its objective to produce more educators who are more excellent and always relevant in carrying out the responsibilities entrusted to them,” she added.
