Societal stigma attached to Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) is difficult to erase. Many around the world have labelled vocationaleducation as an unpromising field and a place to pool non-performers. Although much has been done to promote TVET as legitimate education,the negative perception lingers in the mind of many. Gradually, that negative perception is being discarded as many becomeaware ofthe benefitsof TVET. This paper explores the leadership approach of champions of TVET based on their true experience of championing TVET in Malaysia. Malaysian TVET leaders have demonstrated transformational leadership and have won awards locally and globally.
