The Malaysian Education Blueprint (MEB) 2013-2025 or better known as the Pelan Pembangunan Pendidikan Malaysia (PPPM) 2013-2025 was published in line with the Memartabatkan Bahasa Malaysia dan Memperkukuh Bahasa Inggeris (MBMMBI) policy. Cambridge English was commissioned to conduct a study to ascertain the standard of English among our students and teachers in 2013 and a baseline report was submitted to the Ministry of education (MoE). With the MEB, MBMMBI policy and the Cambridge Baseline Report as the foundation, the English Language Standards and Quality Council (ELSQC) was asked to produce a roadmap for English language education in Malaysia.
Our task was to complete the preparations, and produce a time-tabled plan to be implemented between 2015 and 2025. Targets based on the Common European Framework of Reference (CEFR) have been set for the various levels of education; from preschool to university including teacher training.
Two documents have been produced:

These documents state where we are, where we want to be and how we get to the aspirational targets that have been suggested for the various levels of English Language education in Malaysia with reference to the CEFR. In order to strive to make this reform a reality, the ELSQC is continuously increasing its efforts to convince the different stakeholders – including teachers, administrators, parents, employers and the general public – that the benefits will outweigh the cost and effort involved.
