With his knowledge of the Malay language and customs, in 1916 Winstedt was appointed assistant director of education for Malay schools in the Straits Settlements and Federated Malay States.

Following fact-finding trips to Java and the Philippines, Winstedt recommended a greater focus on handicraft and horticulture in the education system, so as to better equip Malays for kampong (village) life.

Winstedt co-authored a short history of Malaya in 1918. He studied the subject in greater depth during his final years in Malaya, starting with the history of Johor and followed by those of Perak, Negri Sembilan and Selangor.
