The five polytechnics and the Institute of Technical Education have earmarked every first Friday of November each year as the Polytechnic-ITE Appreciation Day.
The day is meant for students to express their gratitude to the academic and non-academic staff of their respective institutions.
Dr Maliki, who is also Minister in the Prime Minister’s Office and Second Minister for Foreign Affairs, thanked the employees at the institutes for their hard work and dedication in a Facebook posting.
“You have nurtured generations to gain real-world skills that can help them embark on their careers,” he noted.
