Malaysia: Technical Education Project

sector: Education | country: Malaysia

Lessons identified in the project completion report (PCR) included (a) estimates of labor supply and demand should be treated as indicators of trends rather than as concrete targets; (b) original estimates for project enrollment should be reviewed and adjusted at the time of the midterm review so as to reflect actual, rather than forecast, socioeconomic conditions; and (c) risks and assumptions with regards to project implementation should be clearly outlined.

The Validator agrees with the PCR’s lessons mentioned above, and identifies the additional lesson for future projects that advisory technical assistance (TA) should be designed to be integrated with the corresponding loan project (e.g., to be implemented by the executing agency/EA of the loan project) so that its recommendations are undertaken by the loan project.
