Boosting Special Education Unit

Another matter raised by Yang Berhormat Pengiran Haji Mohamed bin Pengiran Haji Osman @ Othman was actions implemented by the Ministry of Education to further enhance the Special Education Unit or UPK.

The Minister in his response said the actions include establishing the Centre of Excellence where Special Education will be centralised at specific schools in each district. This is to maximise all resources, in particular teachers and other teaching staff needed in Special Education as well as teaching resources to handle the SENA teachers' well-being to avoid injuries and other mishaps.

Sufficient training in handling the special students should be provided to not just the SENA teachers but also their assistant teachers and home room teachers.
