KOTA KINABALU- The Sabah government has worked with various stakeholders including the federal government to promote highereducation in the state.
Chief Minister Datuk Seri Musa Aman said, this included encouraging school leavers to take up skill-based courses to cater to the demand such as in the downstream processing of oil and gas products and palm oil.
He said the state government had also set up an education hub in Sandakan, apart from learning centres in strategic districts to make higher education accessible to all.
“We do not want school leavers to give up on gaining further education when they are not able to leave Sabah to study in the peninsula due to various
reasons,” he said at the St Paulians’ 3rd reunion here last night.
Musa described learning as a lifelong process which could be by upgrading knowledge through relevant courses and reading.
He hoped professionals in Sabah would continue to contribute to the development of education one way or another. – BERNAMA
