by Engr. Abdul Ghani Rajput

Co-Curriculum Activities in Politeknik Sultan Haji Ahmad Shah (POLISAS), Kuantan, Malaysia
(Impact on Students Development)

by Mohd Azman bin Mohd Alwy


Co-curricular and extra-curricular activities take care of the students’ different developmental needs such as their sense of moral values and attitudes, skills and creativity. Through their participation in Co-curricular activities, students can learn to communicate, to cooperate with other people and in addition to enrich their life experience. The co-curricular and extra-curricular activities have also facilitated brain development, knowledge acquisition, personality development, and civic development of the students.

Co-curricular Activities or CCAs (sometimes known as Co-curricular Education) refer to those activities and programs that complement the formal education of the students in educational institutions. These activities are usually connected with academic matters and are organized or designed to help the students to have a better understanding of the course, and facilitate their diverse skill development tasks.

Extra-curricular Activities or ECAs (sometimes known as Extra-academic Activities) usually refer to those activities performed by the students that take place outside the regular school curriculum. These activities are generally voluntary and the students do not receive any academic credit or grades out of their participation.

This concept paper is prepared for the CPSC webinar to share knowledge on effective implementation of co-curricular and extra-curricular activities in TVET institutions. Thus, CPSC is conducting the webinar to make aware and realize the need of having co-curricular and extra-curricular activities in TVET school to fulfill the aims and objectives of life.
