MAG Chief Executive Officer Izham Ismail said the first group of cadets would be recruited from UniKL's Malaysian Institute of Aviation Technology.

"This partnership gives us a great opportunity to work together with Mara in developing and nurturing a new generation of cadet pilots and talents who will be assured of a job within the group's airlines upon completion of their courses.

"This move is pivotal as MAG continues to expand its operations and become profitable again," he said in a statement on Monday.At the event, Izham signed the MoU on behalf of MAG, while Mara was represented by its Director-General, Datuk Azhar Abdul Manaf.

Youths no longer see TVET as second class education — Jainab
April 24, 2018, Tuesday


Quote:
KOTA KINABALU: Technical and Vocational Education Training is not longer considered second class education by youths, said Community Development and Consumer Affairs Minister, Datuk Jainab Ahmad Ayid.

She said that the negative perception had eroded due to the recognition of governments worldwide on the importance of technical and vocational education training or TVET.

Jainab said that TVET was able to meet economic, social and environmental demands whilst encouraging fair, inclusive and sustainable economic growth.

“We should be proud of the technical and vocational sectors that we have embarked on since it has been proven that TVET is the main mover to the development of developed countries,” she said.

She added that in order to achieve the developed nation and high income status, the country requires competitive and highly qualified local workforce.

She also said that the government was committed to train 300,000 Malaysians from low income group or B40 starting now and until 2025.

Jainab said that the government would also train and increase the numbers of its teaching manpower in TVET and was targeting the production of 20,000 trainers.

Specialists in TVET would also be increased by another 4,000 people by 2025, she said.

Similarly, the government shall endeavor to produce 50,000 job opportunities through the TVET Bootcamp.

Meanwhile, more than 900 trainees graduated at the 2018 Giat Mara graduation ceremony which was held yesterday.

Malaysia remains attractive destination for foreign talent
April 30, 2018, Monday


Quote:
KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysia is seen as an attractive location in attracting foreign talent as the government’s aim of achieving high-income status is well-publicised, along with its foreigner-friendly policies.

According to mobility solutions provider ECA International associate director for Asia, Mark Harrison, the country was on par with others in the region in terms of policies implemented to attract foreign skilled labour and the government had taken proactive steps to help see it through.

“Malaysia is part of the Asean Economic Community, which aims to facilitate the easier movement of people within the community, amongst other goals.

“Our Labour Law team notes that changes will happen over the next few years as the Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership (CPTPP) comes into place,” he told Bernama in an email interview.

Harrison said government policies and labour laws may need to be updated to reflect the terms of the CPTPP and be brought in line with other countries in the partnership.

He pointed out that Malaysia’s policies could make a difference in attracting and retaining employees, particularly as other countries such as Singapore had tightened immigration requirements.

Policies such as the ‘Malaysia My Second Home’ and Resident Pass is certainly a positive step, but attracting and retaining foreign talent also depends, on the type Malaysia wishes to recruit, said Harrison.

“Senior employees rarely face difficulties in securing visas when relocated by their companies, as they easily qualify to work in most locations.The companies will usually make the relevant arrangements for them.

“The same cannot be said for junior employees, especially those who are relocating out on their own choice, rather than being assigned,” he added.

Harrison said foreign employees tend to be high earners and as such, if foreign manpower policies are handled correctly, it should not result in companies indiscriminately bringing in foreign workers for jobs which could be handled by locals. He also said foreign manpower should be part of an overall strategy to shift the economy from manufacturing and other lower-paid work towards a more service-based economy.

“Bringing in foreign employees who have experience in more developed markets should help to train local employees and guide companies in the host country as they make this transition,” he added.

Meanwhile, Harrison pointed out the drawbacks of high crime rates and pollution levels, saying the safety of employees and their families will always be the most important factor.

“Malaysia is however, perceived as an attractive location due to the work-life balance and the general quality of life, supported by the lower cost of living, housing, and international schools, compared to other locations, including Singapore and Hong Kong,” he said. — Bernama

Resolve productivity issues before equalising minimum wage, says employers group
Melati A. Jalil
Updated about 20 minutes ago · Published on 28 May 2018 3:42PM · 0 comments


Quote:
LOW labour productivity must be addressed before a standardised minimum wage can be introduced across the country, said the Malaysian Employers Federation (MEF).

Its executive director, Shamsuddin Bardan, said the new Pakatan Harapan government's promise to equalise minimum wage nationally within its first 100 days must take into account the burden on businesses, especially in Sabah and Sarawak.

“We have to be realistic with the reasoning behind the differential.

“Until and unless lower productivity is resolved in Sabah and Sarawak, we may not be able to equalise the rates,” he said.

PH’s election manifesto pledged to begin the process of increasing the monthly minimum wage in its first 100 days. It pledged to subsequently raise it to RM1,500 in its first five years in power and review the rate biannually.

Currently, the minimum wage in Peninsular Malaysia is RM1,000 and RM920 in East Malaysia.


Wages in Sabah and Sarawak are lower because of the productivity level and the capacity of employers there to pay more, Shamsuddin added.

“Productivity levels are part of the criteria to determine the minimum wage. (As productivity) is still lower in Sabah and Sarawak, technically, we cannot have the same rate for East and Peninsular Malaysia,” he said.

Malaysia’s ratio of employee compensation (CE) to gross domestic product (GDP) is still low at 35.3% in 2016, compared with high- and middle-income countries like Australia (47.8%), South Korea (43.2%) and South Africa (45.9%), according to data in the 11th Malaysia Plan.

Shamsuddin said businesses, especially in Sabah and Sarawak, were not ready for equalised minimum pay.

“The minimum wage policy can still be there but based on what is happening, there shouldn’t be any increases in the minimum wage for the time being."

He said other policies that should be in place before a standardised and higher minimum wage can be implemented are moves to increase the public’s purchasing power, which would drive growth and productivity.

Sabah Employers Association ‘shocked’ by RM1,100 minimum wage
November 4, 2018, Sunday


Quote:
KOTA KINABALU: The Sabah Employers Association said it was taken aback by the minimum wage rate of RM1,100 instead of previously announced RM1,050.

“It’is irregular to change suddenly like that; exposing the fact that minimum wage setting is likely a political consideration instead of economical, and if this is so it will be almost 20 per cent increment, which certainly will be burdensome for Sabah’s small employers, with none of their voices being heard, despite what state ministry has insisted,” said SEA president Yap Cheen Boon.

The Employment Insurance Scheme should not be continued in the budget, he pointed out.

“Sabah alone, both employees and employers together, contribute up to RM77 million a year. With low number of retrenchments ahead (as per Economic Outlook 2019), EIS will be more in (receipt) then out (disbursed), and will continue to snowball.

“The Government should not treat this contribution as a ‘spare buffer account’, but should instead abolish if not reduce further the contribution rate to allow more liquidity in the hands of both employees and employers.

“In a few years’ time when the fund has reached a few billion Ringgit it would be hard pressed to utilise objectively.

“Overall a ‘balanced-outcome’ budget in line with 11MP mid-term review. It is encouraging to see reduction in income tax rate for small companies with minimal profits, refund of GST & income tax credits, and allowing more funding alternatives.

“Worth noting is RM5,009 million for Sabah specific development expenditure which should see much needed basic infrastructure and utilities supply upgrade, at least some.

“The challenge of moving forward is to minimise recurring asymmetric situation for Sabah; how to ensure Sabah businesses have equal access to the assistance, funding in an informed, expedited manner as their Peninsular Malaysia counterparts. The onus is now on our state government to align the same,” he concluded.

Oil and gas sector hires more local graduates, trims forex losses
By NST Business - February 19, 2019 @ 5:31pm


Quote:
KUALA LUMPUR: Skilled local workforce has helped major oil and gas (O&G) cushion the global weak oil prices, ringgit fluctuations and foreign exchange (forex losses) over the past few years.

Analysts said companies such as Petroliam Nasional Bhd (Petronas), Sapura Energy Bhd, Alam Maritim Bhd, Barakah Offshore Bhd and others has hired local professionals and technical and vocational education and training (TVET) graduates to reduce costs, which is part of the companies' cost cutting measures.

Sunway University Business School Professor of Economics Dr Yeah Kim Leng said the O&G sector is a very specialised high technology sector which requires a lot of specialised skills to work at oil rigs and fabrication yards.

"In the early days, these niche areas required foreign expertise and was dominated by expatriates but now firms such as Petronas and Sapura no longer hire foreign professionals but source local engineers from the O&G field.

"This in turn has enabled the country to save a lot in terms of foreign exchange as it is very expensive to pay the foreign engineers.

"Now Malaysia is able to produce its own local oil and gas engineers, technicians and supervisors," Yeah told NST Business recently.

Yeah added the sector is also a hotbed for hundreds of TVET graduates every year to fill in various positions across the entire oil and gas supply chain both in Malaysia and abroad.

"Petronas and other companies for example are growing globally and they are helping the country's workforce by employing some of these TVET graduates to work on oil rigs and at fabrication yards," he said.

Meanwhile, an O&G engineer at Jurunature Sdn Bhd said the sector is growing robustly all over the world and it will require TVET graduates fill up the various portfolios available all over the world.

"Petronas for example is a Forbes 100 company with oil and gas exploration activities all over the world and it will farm out all the contracts to O&G firms such as Jurunature, Barakah Offshore, Sapura and foreign players as well.

He added many O&G firms are also teaming up with foreign players to save cost as well as tap and leverage on each other's strengths and synergies.

"It has been tough for some O&G companies, and some have even closed shop. But for others, they team up to prepare for the tough road ahead such as Petronas which is expanding in various countries as well as Sapura which recently teamed up with Sapura OMV," said the engineer.

Meanwhile a source at Petronas said the national oil firm is committed in collaborating with TVET graduates via the Petronas Training Institute to produce quality O&G workforce.

However Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia Associate Professor Dr Mohamad Sattar Rasul said more can be done to help TVET graduates as the contributions by the institute is minimal.

"Petronas can do more by introducing an apprenticeship programme to help them secure jobs once they graduate from TVET institutes.

"Petronas can implement the national dual training system which absorbs the graduates into the sector and become part of the country's oil and gas workforce," he said.

New board for training institutes parked under Manpower Department
March 7, 2019 @ 3:53pm
Azura Abas


Quote:
PUTRAJAYA: The government will form an Institute-Industry Management Board (IIMB) at all training institutes under the Manpower Department to create a local workforce which will enable Malaysia to become a high-income economy.

Human Resources Minister M. Kulasegaran said three training institutes - Japan-Malaysia Training Institute (JMTI), Advance Technology Training Centre (ADTEC) Shah Alam and Kuala Lumpur Industrial Training Institute (ILPKL) - have been selected to take part in the IIMB pilot project.

He said the IIMB members would include Human Resources Development Fund (HRDF), registered employers, workers’ unions and employer associations.


“With the setup of IIMB, it will become an effective initiative to ensure facilities for training, curriculum and upgrading of educators at every training institute which will be relevant to the needs of the industry,” he said before witnessing the signing of three memorandum of understanding (MoU) on training cooperation.

The MoU signing was between the Manpower Department and Pembangunan Sumber Manusia Bhd (PSMB); Manpower Department, PSMB and Penang Skills Devlopment Centre; and Manpower Department, PSMB and First Solar Malaysia Sdn Bhd.

Kulasegaran said governed by the PSMB Act 2001, PSMB was given the mandate by the government to catalyse the development of a competent local workforce which would contribute to Malaysia’s vision of becoming a high-income economy.

“Additionally, PSMB continues to be steadfast in its effort towards encouraging employers covered under the PSMB Act 2001 to re-train and upgrade the skills of their local employees, apprentices and trainees in keeping with the fast-evolving global business landscape while meeting the aspirations of their respective company/companies.

“In line with the 11th Malaysia Plan, we need to take effective measures to increase the percentage of skilled workers. The burden of achieving this target is not solely borne by the government but equally shared by the private sector as well.

“Industrial workers need to have continous training in order to keep abreast with the current technological advancements. Workers who have significant experience in their relevant skills set can be certified via Recognition of Prior Experiential Learning (RPEL) whereby it enables the workers to have a certificate or diploma without going through the traditional training pathway,” he said.

The minister was upbeat by the cooperation that the Manpower Department and PSMB would have with First Solar Malaysia, a subsidiary of a multinational company in the renewable energy industy, to further enhance the skills and academic qualifications of their technical staff.

“I was informed up to 500 technical staff will be involved, beginning with 125 technical staff who will undergo skills training at ADTEC Kulim.

“Futhermore, these staff will be assisted in building portfolios of evidence of prior learning and experiences which will lead to the award of diploma through RPEL.

“I hope more companies in this country will emulate the effort of First Solar to upskill their local workforce.”

99.9% of Sabah prison inmates on parole employed
POSTED ON MARCH 26, 2019, TUESDAY AT 8:19 AM SABAH


Quote:
KOTA KINABALU: Nearly all or 99.9 percent of Sabah prison inmates on parole have gained employment in the private sector.

According to Sabah and the Federal Territory of Labuan Prison director, Suria Haji Idris, the total number of inmates on parole in Sabah between 2008 and 2019 are 2,401 people.

Most are working in the private sector, including being self employed, working for their family or employed by companies in Sabah, he said.

Suria also said that 66 of the inmates on parole who are involved in the department’s Corporate Smart Internship programme had also successfully gotten jobs with Yun Fook Resources Sdn Bhd in Keningau in the agriculture sector and at the Boustead Gradient Sdn Bhd’s oil palm plantation in Sandakan.

In his address at the 229th Malaysia Prison Day celebration held in Kapayan, Suria said that the support of various parties is important for the successful implementation of its inmate rehabilitation programmes.

“Our cooperation with various government agencies, private sector, government-linked corporations, non-government organisations and the public in providing skills and job opportunities are crucial to rehabilitate the inmates and lead them back to living normal lives,” he said.

Presently the Prison Department is cooperating with Felcra, Felda, Malaysia Skills Department, Metro Driving Academy, Open University Malaysia and others, he said.

Suria also said that the department is facing over congestion issue in prisons.

He said that matter is affecting the management and efforts to rehabilitate the inmates.

“The increase in the prison population has hit 70,000 which is 32.45 percent congestion, exceeding the capacity of 52,850 at nearly all prisons. This has become a challenge in ensuring its security and effectiveness in the implementation of the inmates rehabilitation programme,” he said.

Meanwhile, Assistant Minister to the Chief Minister, Arifin Asgali, hoped prison personnel can help curb inmates from carrying out similar mistakes that would land them back in jail.

He stressed the importance of inculcating religious values towards this end.

Arifin also said that the Kapayan prison has 3,000 inmates, exceeding its capacity of slightly above 1,000 inmates.

Reporters were also told that the percentage of repeat offenders has gone down, signifying that the programmes undertaken by the department have been successful.

So far, the Kapayan prison has produced Diploma graduates under its collaboration with Open University Malaysia.

ICTE engaged in future transformational entrepreneurship in Malaysia
By By NST Business - April 5, 2019 @ 9:39pm



International Centre for Transformational Entrepreneurship (ICTE) director from Coventry UK Professor Gideon Maas says the key learnings from this visit were that people are eager to have conversations about the unique challenges of the local and global environment and equally eager to find contextualised answers for these challenges.

Quote:
KUALA LUMPUR: Coventry University’s International Centre for Transformational Entrepreneurship (ICTE) team was recently in Kuala Lumpur for three days to conduct meetings and activities with local stakeholders to engage and discuss the challenges, opportunities, and future of transformational entrepreneurship in Malaysia.

Having launched the Southeast Asia Institute for Transformational Entrepreneurship (SEAITE) with the support of Tunku Abdul Rahman University College in 2017, Coventry’s return visit this round included meeting up with the Ministry of Entrepreneur Development (MED) as well as connecting with local entrepreneurs.

“The key learnings from this visit were that people are eager to have conversations about the unique challenges of the local and global environment and equally eager to find contextualised answers for these challenges.

"These solutions will not lie in individual programmes and projects but rather through the promotion of a sound and well-articulated entrepreneurial ecosystem,” ICTE director from Coventry UK Professor Gideon Maas said.

Gideon said ICTE identify countries that have energy, economic growth, drive, and a willingness to do things.

"Not to mention, an entrepreneurial strategy, which you don’t find in many countries. There’s a difference between normal businesses and entrepreneurial businesses, in which the latter is more energetic and focused on creating long-term growth – that is why Malaysia was chosen,” he said.

A key highlight of the visit was a roundtable meeting where Coventry University was joined by the participants to discuss the landscape of entrepreneurship in Malaysia – examining it from all fronts, such as the roles of the government and educational institutions.

The participants included Startup Malaysia, Taylor’s Education Group, United Nations Development Programmes (UNDP), British Council Malaysia, Tandemic, University Putra Malaysia (UPM), Impact Hub KL, Social Innovation Movement, CARING MOMS, Growth Malaysia (by Fave), 1337 Ventures, PurpoSE Malaysia and Talent Corporation Malaysia (TalentCorp).

Gideon stressed that this open discussion focused on two things: networking to create better contextualised solutions and setting an agenda.

“From this discussion, we came up with eight points to fine tune. Some of the areas include the ecosystem; education; and ways to get corporates and communities involved as they have to support entrepreneurship. In that sense, we now have a target – it includes influencing the curriculum design, incentivising lecturers to be more entrepreneurial and creating case studies.

"So, if we stay in touch virtually or physically, we can always return to this agenda.”

Of obstacles unique to Malaysia, Gideon pointed out that an important challenge to tackle moving forward from this is the changing of people’s mindsets as social entrepreneurship is very much often viewed as synonymous to charity – when both exist and operate in two different spaces.

Nevertheless, he stresses that Malaysia is on the right track – especially due to local governmental policies that create a conducive environment for transformational entrepreneurship.

No country has a perfect ecosystem, but there has to be willingness to deal with the imperfections. That is how we improve and identify gaps that have to be filled.

"We do not believe there is a particular model or way to do things – everything has to be contextualised and fit into the respective country’s landscape.

What we can do is share information and learn from each other,” he said.

Malaysia Future Leaders School to instil good values among youths
Bernama May 04, 2019 00:37 am +08



Quote:
KUALA LUMPUR (May 3): The Malaysia Future Leaders School (MFLS) was created according to the model of the Japan Future Leaders School but has been adapted to the Malaysian landscape, said Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad.

The Prime Minister said the programme is aimed at instilling leadership qualities and good values among the youths in order to strengthen and harness their potential to be great leaders in the future.

“What determines success is the adoption of good values by someone or a race until it becomes a way of life for a race.

“Our hope is that by instilling good values while they are still young they will practise it and make it their way of life,” he said when launching the MFLS at Universiti Malaya here tonight.

Also present were his wife Tun Dr Siti Hasmah Mohd Ali and Youth and Sports Minister Syed Saddiq Syed Abdul Rahman.

The Prime Minister said values of the Japanese people would be inculcated through MFLS to mould future leaders with strong personality in the aspects of integrity, inclusiveness, excellence, volunteerism, responsibility, competitiveness and community spirit.

“For example, workers in Japan are very meticulous in carrying out their duties for the sake of producing high quality products or services. This ‘meticulous’ culture has become part of their daily life and is not only reflected in their work,” he said.

“The recipe for success for the Japanese and South Koreans is based on discipline, loyalty to the country, priority for society, emphasis on quality, and the regular practice of positive values in their daily life.

Dr Mahathir said as such, the Look East Policy is still relevant although it was introduced 37 years ago in 1982.

He said the shaping of mindsets and inculcation of values among the youths today were very different from that for the previous generation because then the sources of the values were traditional and conventional, like parents, teachers, religious education and civics lessons.

“Today, the sources of values are diverse. Apart from the traditional sources I mentioned, the rapid development in information technology has opened up various avenues and penetrated the minds of all strata of society, especially the young generation.

“Some among the younger generation prefer to refer to the internet and social media without the need to do some research first,” he said.

He also admitted that young people nowadays are fond of playing online games which can influence them and shape their personality.

Therefore, MFLS was introduced as a way to respond to the challenge of Industrial Revolution 4.0 to ensure that youths could use and handle modern technology positively and effectively, he said.

Global MNCs in KL grooming world-class local talent
By Farah Adilla, Amir Hisyam Rasid - May 8, 2019 @ 11:18am

KUALA LUMPUR: INDUSTRY 4.0 is reshaping economies around the world with rapid technological advancements. By providing an enabling eco-system to thrive in these new technologies, the country will continue to attract high-growth investment from various industries, especially in the high-value services sector, providing regional high-paying jobs.

In a recent statement, International Trade and Investment Ministry (Miti) Minister Darell Leiking said that industry 4.0 or Industry4WRD will pave the way for enhanced productivity, job creation, high-skilled talent pool and ultimately contribute to the economic prosperity and societal well-being.

Two multinational companies with regional hubs in Malaysia are committed to invest in upskilling local talent to help them achieve global competitiveness and prepare for the technological advancement of Industry 4.0. International leading manufacturer of lighting products Feilo Sylvania and the world leader in industrial gases, technologies and services, Air Liquide, are giving back to the Malaysian community through human capital development programmes.


The firms, which are known for their technological advancements and Industry 4.0 related activities, said they are grooming local talent to possess qualities that will place them on a level playing field with their international peers especially in the area of digital technology and automation.

This, they believe, will be beneficial to Malaysia’s economy as the demand for high skilled talent will increase as the country journeys towards industrial 4.0.


“We will continue to collaborate with the talent ecosystem, working together with academia and related parties to build and grow our Malaysian talent capabilities in order for us to face new challenges ahead as we grow our investment in this region,” Feilo Sylvania Regional General Manager for Southeast Asia Walter Hiew said in an interview recently.

He said the firm will be expanding its team to be more technologically innovative as the company cement its position as a leading provider of consumer, industrial and architectural lighting solutions.

“The company emphasises on human capital development is an important factor to support our regional business expansion into this region. We focus on educating, upskilling and reskilling, training and other professional development initiatives to improve and increase the level of know-how, skill sets and experience of our employees, ” he added.

Feilo Sylvania launched its regional hub in Greater Kuala Lumpur in 2017 with an initial investment of US$10 million (RM41 million) while Air Liquide selected Kuala Lumpur amongst many other regional locations early last year, to set up its regional Smart Innovative Operations (SIO) centre here with a €20million (RM96 million) investments.

Air Liquide, on the other hand, believes in providing more international exposure to Malaysian talent in their global operations as well as in senior management levels of the organisation.

“We place so much importance on skills and development of our employees. That is one example of how we contribute to the Malaysian economy and eco-system,” Air Liquid Centre of Excellence Director, Clement Lix and SIO Transformation Director, Sebastien Giard said.

“Continuous upskilling is important. This will help them be more equipped with the necessary skills as they climb the corporate ladders. For example, we have soft and leadership training as well as on-the-job training. We are developing the local talents so that one day they can lead and manage the operations here.”

“In our organisation, they will not be doing repetitive transactional and value tasks. They will be exposed to big data and learning on how to extract value from it,” they said.

Feilo Sylvania and Air Liquide said one of the main reasons they chose Malaysia as their regional services hubs is also because of the country’s highly skilled talent pool.

Walter said the firm believes that the Malaysian skilled workforce is capable to undertake both its servicing and manufacturing activities. Currently, almost all its regional employees are Malaysians.

“With a diverse talent pool, we are able to tap into this valuable asset to further expand our services in Malaysia, a regional hub for business growth and development in Southeast Asia,” he added.

For Air Liquide, Clement and Sebastien said that they have access to a large pool of talents, top universities and experienced professionals. And, Air Liquide also work on various academic collaboration programmes with these universities.



(File pix) InvestKL chief executive officer Datuk Zainal Amanshah says Malaysia’s local talent is highly-skilled to meet industry demands.

InvestKL’s Chief Executive Officer Datuk Zainal Amanshah said Malaysia was ranked 22nd among 63 countries by the International Institute for Management Development (IMD) in 2018, ahead of Japan, the United Kingdom and France. In terms of investment in and development of home-grown talent, Malaysia is ranked 17th, ahead of the US, Japan, France, Korea and UK.

With the availability of diverse high skilled talent, more foreign MNCs are beginning to see the value of setting up and operating their regional and even global Business Services hub here in Greater KL.

Foreign Direct Investments for global and regional establishments, in 2018, accounted for RM16.5 billion of the approved investments in the Services sector.

Zainal added that the investments in Digital technology are also growing in the areas of Artificial Intelligence (AI), Big Data Analytics (BDA), Internet of Things (IoT) and cybersecurity, which is in-line with Miti’s national policy on Industry 4.0 or Indystry4WRD initiatives.

All these factors put Malaysia on the elevated platform for global investors. The value proposition of Greater Kuala Lumpur is hard to beat, with our strong business infrastructure and a conducive ecosystem to support our investors. Our local talents are also highly skilled to meet industry demands. We facilitate collaboration between multinationals and academia to nurture our locals to be global corporate leaders through our Malaysia Global Talent (MGT) program me,” he said.

“The MGT programme was launched to set and facilitate initiatives that will develop and enhance local talent skill sets to be at par with global standards. The sharing of MNCs’ knowledge, expertise and best practices will help prepare Malaysians the future of work with global MNCs.

InvestKL will continue to facilitate the needs of our MNCs to ensure that their regional operations in Greater Kuala Lumpur will continue to growth,” Zainal said.

MTUC calls on Govt to formulate special Act to protect TVET graduates
Bernama May 18, 2019 01:15 am +08

Quote:
KUALA LUMPUR (May 17): The Malaysian Trade Union Congress (MTUC) has called on the Government to formulate a special Act to protect Technical Education and Vocational Training (TVET) graduates, especially in terms of gaining employment opportunities.

MTUC president Datuk Abdul Halim Mansor said the law should among other things, require industry players to prioritise the recruitment of TVET graduates over foreign labour.

"This step should be taken to ensure industry players are involved in the development of human capital and providing job opportunities to TVET graduates.

"Currently, we do not have any protection because there is no ratio (for hiring foreign employees). In Singapore, there can only be one foreign worker for every 10 locals hired," he said when contacted by Bernama here today.

Yesterday, Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad called on key industry players to actively develop human capital and support the transformation of TVET to help improve the quality of the workforce.

Commenting further, Abdul Halim said most employers in the country looked to ‘invest’ in low-cost foreign labour, as hiring locals would require them to comply with the minimum wage rule which is considered to be burdensome.

"We have to change the attitude of employers to favour nationalism over capitalism, that is being responsible in helping the government develop human capital, especially among TVET graduates," he added.

Manchester City owner considering buying club in Malaysia
Bernama May 23, 2019 22:42 pm +08
Quote:
PUTRAJAYA (May 23): The owner of English Champions Manchester City is considering the possibility of buying one of the football clubs in Malaysia, said Youth and Sports Minister Syed Saddiq Syed Abdul Rahman.

It was one of the two initial plans discussed by the Ministry of Youth and Sports and the Manchester City delegation led by its chief executive officer Ferran Soriano when both parties met at KBS Tower here, today.

From the Ministry’s perspective, Syed Saddiq was hoping that the collaboration could also give a positive impact on the development of youth through the National Football Development Programme (NFDP) as well as Mokhtar Dahari Academy (MDA) in Gambang.

“The meeting today is to see how we can work and collaborate closely to develop football. There were many things discussed...for example, the possibility of Manchester City (City Football Group) buying one of the clubs in Malaysia.

“From the Ministry’s perspective, we would also like to see.. maybe collaboration in terms of development of youth through NFDP and MDA. There will be future visits to see how we can move forward on this collaboration,” he told reporters here, today.

City Football Group was founded in 2014 and its first sister club was established in New York.

Beside Manchester City, the group also owns and has shares in New York City FC (United States), Melbourne City (Australia), Yokohama F Marinos (Japan), Atletico Torque (Uruguay) and Spanish side Girona FC.

They then further extended their influence in world’s football and increased their portfolios to seven clubs by purchasing Sichuan Jiuniu which became their first ever club in China.

“We see Malaysia has an opportunity for football...the level of enthusiasm of the fans is obvious. The development of Malaysian football and the league in the last year with investment by the government shows that there’s great opportunity.

“We would like to explore things to do together with the Malaysian people and Malaysian football family. Malaysian football will grow significantly in the next decade,” Soriano said.

However, Soriano did not reveal the name of the club that the group was interested in buying.

HRDF launches scheme to help low-income workers enhance skills
Bernama July 03, 2019 18:14 pm +08


Quote:
KUALA LUMPUR (July 3): Human Resources Development Fund (HRDF) today launched the B40 Capacity Building Scheme (B40 CAB) to assist low-income workers get skills training to increase their income.

Human Resources Minister M. Kula Segaran said the scheme would help improve the economic condition of this group and achieve the government’s target of 35% skilled workforce by next year.

“Currently, the number of skilled labour is only 28 per cent... we need to focus more on this and employers are encouraged to give their staff the opportunity to acquire skills.

“The scheme is open to everyone and hopefully they will take advantage of this to improve their skills,” he told reporters after launching the scheme at HRDF’s Hari Raya open house and 2019 Meet the Customers Day here.

Via B40 CaB, HRDF aims to arm participants with specific skills and knowledge, enabling them to secure employment, gain promotion and/ or earn a better income.

HRDF will be running several pilot projects with its strategic partner, National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health (Niosh), prior to the official implementation, expected to begin in August this year.

Meanwhile, when asked about legislation to protect domestic workers, Kula Segaran said it was not an easy process.

“You know it’s not that easy when you want to amend an act. There are so many procedures, so many stakeholders. It will take time. But I'm in the process of doing it,” he said.

Meanwhile, Tenaganita executive director Glorene A. Das said the ministry must work towards enacting a standalone Act for domestic workers, the media reported today.

At the event, Kula Segaran also presented duit raya and school assistance to 18 children of the Nur Syaheera Organisation, Cheras. — Bernama

Fee exemption for Indians not a big issue’: Academics
Published on: Saturday, July 06, 2019
By: Bernama


Quote:
Kuala Lumpur: There is no reason to make a big fuss about the fee exemption given to Indians who participate in the technical and vocational education training (TVET) courses conducted at the training centres run by the Manpower Department, said academics.

Prof Dr Ahmad Martadha Mohamed (pic), political analyst and lecturer at the College of Law, Government and International Studies at Universiti Utara Malaysia, said certain quarters were making an issue out of it just to gain political mileage.

The previous government had also been doing it, he said, adding that the fee waiver was part of the government’s efforts to help bridge the economic gap between the Indians and other communities in this country, as well improve the socio-economic status of Indian youths.

“It’s a known fact that many Indians are lagging behind in the economic and educational aspects and they also get fewer opportunities.

“Without proper education, it is hard for them to get good jobs. Through an initiative like this which provides them access to skills training, they are able to improve their standard of living,” he told Bernama.

On Monday, some parents and trainees expressed their frustration on social media over the fee exemptions given to Indian youths who enrolled at the Industrial Training Institute in Tangkak, Johor.

On the same day, the Human Resources Ministry responded in a statement that the fee exemptions to increase Indian youth enrolment at the Manpower Department’s Industrial Training Institutes were not new as the previous government had implemented a similar initiative from 2013 to 2015 under the Youth and Sports Ministry.

During that period a total of RM11.6 million was allocated to the initiative which had benefited 671 Indian students. The Human Resources Ministry said RM5 million was allocated in Budget 2019 to encourage up to 2,000 Indian youths to take up TVET courses.

Ahmad Martadha said since issues like these tend to “grab the attention of the various races”, the government should come out with a clear and detailed explanation to avoid any misunderstanding or negative perception.

He also said that the government should assist youths of all races, particularly those living in rural areas, by giving them more opportunities to participate in skills-based training programmes.

This would help to bridge the urban-rural income gap, he said and suggested that the fee exemptions be extended to the B40 group, Orang Asli and bumiputera communities, including those from Sabah and Sarawak.

Preference for community colleges
Published on: Friday, July 26, 2019
By: Johan Aziz


Quote:
TAMBUNAN: The marketability of Tambunan Community College graduates in 2018 was 99.26 per cent, and which proves the wisdom of locating the college in this district in enhancing local TVET skills.

Polytechnic and Community College Department Deputy Director General (Planning) Ministry of Education, TS Dr Mohammad Naim Yaakub, said the college started operating in 2013 at a rented building at Tambunan Village Resort Centre by offering three certificate programmes namely Tourism and Adventure, Agrotechnology and Light Vehicle Service.

“The full time course offered at 102 community colleges in the country is 16 Diploma, 42 Certificate and eight special skills certificates,” he said in his speech at the opening of the Tambunan Community College Campus here on Saturday.

Mohammad Naim said the Ministry of Education Malaysia is committed to implementing education transformation through the 2015-2025 Malaysia Education Development Plan (Higher Education) by setting a program of technical and vocational education and training (TVET) equivalent to academic programs and inculcating lifelong learning at the national level.

He said this education plan was in line with the Fourth Industrial Revolution (Industry 4.0) to produce balanced graduates and that Malaysia was among the best in adapting the 4.0 industry in education.

In this context, he said Community Colleges were changing the minds of the people in the face of Industry 4.0 by emphasizing education based on skills.

Mohammad Naim said apart from providing skills education to SPM leavers, the college also plays an important role in providing short-term exposure to local communities under the Lifelong Learning (PSH) and Lifelong Islamic Education (PISH).

He said this was in line with the role of community college as an institution based on skills in efforts to enhance the nation’s education opportunities in line with Malaysia’s Education Development Plan (Higher Education).

At present there are eight community colleges in Sabah namely, Tawau, Semporna, Sandakan, Lahad Datu, Beaufort, Penampang, Kota Marudu and Tambunan. Two more would be opened in Papar and Kota Kinabalu.

He believes the community colleges in the state including Tambunan will continue to excel with full commitment and dedication by the staff including directors, lecturers and other staff in supporting and implementing the National TVET empowerment policy.

“The country’s hopes and aspirations through the three new community college initiatives and various TVET empowerment strategies in the country are unlikely to succeed without collaboration with industry partners and community members,” he said.

He said the three initiatives were the ACES (Apprenticeship, Professional Certification, Entrepreneurship and Community College Certificate), Maker Market which is a 21st century learning and a premier hut as a step towards improving the TVET skills of hut student.

Mohammad Naim said these three initiatives are important to ensure Community College remains relevant to the community, especially in the face of Industry 4.0 challenges

Syllabus to make KTYS students more employable
BY FIQAH ROSLAN ON AUGUST 27, 2019, TUESDAY AT 10:49 AM SABAH



Quote:
KOTA KINABALU: In a move to produce more skilled manpower to cater to industry needs, Kolej Teknikal Yayasan Sabah (KTYS) signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Portland Arena Sdn Bhd to curate a syllabus which would equip students to make them more employable, as well as tackle manpower shortage in the industry.

Portland Arena Sdn Bhd group managing director Dato Izz Mika’il Abdullah said the partnership with KTYS was apt as the college focused on technical and vocational education training (TVET).

He said the specially curated syllabus was one of its kind and that it was unique to KTYS.

“This is the first of its kind in Sabah and also a first for Portland Arena. In the 25 years we’ve been in the industry, there has always been a problem of acquiring skilled labour. With this syllabus and through this partnership, we believe we would be able to fulfill manpower requirements and provide job opportunities to locals at the same time.

“With a hands-on approach, students would be trained according to industry standards and requirements. This would then make it easier for them to obtain a job upon completing their course,” said Izz Mika’il.

At the MoU signing yesterday, Izz Mika’il told the press that Portland Arena and KTYS had been in discussion over the technicalities, equipment and training module to develop the syllabus, prior to the MoU signing.

He reiterated that KTYS was the first of all TVET colleges to have that kind of syllabus, which according to Izz Mika’il was the most relevant in the industry.

He further said the programme would provide job opportunities to Sabahans not only in their hometown, but also internationally, as the skills imparted upon trainees were highly sought after.

Meanwhile, KTYS chief executive officer Chee Su Kyun was delighted that the college would be able to provide some of the most relevant industrial needs by equipping trainees with something more than a degree or paper qualification. He said this was especially meaningful as most KTYS students were from the B40 group.

“This kind of skills training could improve their livelihood and address the high rate of youth unemployment in the State,” said Chee.

The MoU signing ceremony was witnessed by Deputy Minister of Home Affairs cum Sepanggar Member of Parliament Datuk Mohd Azis Jamman. He commended the partnership and said it would improve the existing KTYS module to provide students with better training.

By: Bernama


Quote:
KUALA LUMPUR: The National Higher Education Fund Corporation (PTPTN) today signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with three agencies to assist borrowers find jobs after completing their studies.

The agreement was with the National Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Malaysia (NCCIM)), Jobstreet.com Sdn Bhd and Peninsular Malaysia Labour Department.

PTPTN chairman Wan Saiful Wan Jan said as the leading education loan body, PTPTN sees the difficulties in seeking employment faced by its borrowers as also a problem felt by PTPTN.

“PTPTN "understands" the issue faced by borrowers and it has decided to help address the issue with the cooperation of these agencies as a corporate social responsibility (CSR) to borrowers.

“It is out of PTPTN’s jurisdiction and function but the CSR approach is taken by PTPTN as part of its efforts assist borrowers find jobs and facilitate their repayment 12 months after finishing their courses,” he added.

The cooperation via the MoU will also help to improve loan repayment which would further assist the future generation and is expected to benefit one million borrowers.

Wan Saiful said the cooperation also hoped to aid earlier PTPTN borrowers since 1997 if they were still unemployed or wish to seek better jobs.

It is hoped the collaboration would assist borrowers who could not repay or could afford to pay consistently to give them more avenues to find better employment, he said.

Meanwhile, NCCIM honourary treasurer, Nazwin Don Najib said MyJobs under NCCIM is a platform for employers to promote vacancies as well as a channel for PTPTN borrowers to seek employment.

“The platform will assist in building a database on employment applications which could be used especially by members of NCCIM to meet their requirements of finding the candidates to fill vacant posts quickly.

“650,000 employers as members of NCCIM will provide job opportunities on contract or temporary employment training as short term measures before participants find better permanent jobs,” he said.

Meanwhile, JobStreet.com country manager Gan Bock Herm said JobStreet.com has 90,000 registered employers locally and abroad.

Apart from that, he said JobStreet.com has created a microsite for PTPTN to provide all functions of seeking employment.

“The additional service which is provided free to PTPTN borrowers covered various modules such as preparing for interview, basic soft skill learning, writing resume and many others,” he said,

He said the lessons would be made in a form of a short video and would be displayed randomly for training and could be used by PTPTN borrowers apart from providing information to JobStreet.com officers as well as industry employers to PTPTN borrowers. – Bernama

Ministry drafting National Human Resources Blueprint
Published on: Wednesday, September 11, 2019
By: Bernama


Quote:
CYBERJAYA: The Ministry of Human Resources is in the midst of drafting the National Human Resources Blueprint (NHRB) to prepare Malaysia for the Industrial Revolution 4.0 (IR 4.0) and resolve issues faced in the labour market.

Minister M. Kulasegaran said the NHRB would analyse the changes and opportunities created in the fields of employment, skills and human capital development to help enhance the economic growth of Malaysia.

“This in return shall pave the way for the development of a strategic and comprehensive Human Resource Development plan which will carry out an in-depth analysis pertaining the trend, pattern and issues concerning three main frameworks which are workforce, workplace and jobs,” he said in his speech at the launch of Human Resource Convention here Tuesday.

His speech was read out by the ministry’s deputy secretary-general (policy and international) Datuk Kua Abun.

Kulasegaran said under the workforce’s framework, the NHRB would assess the impact of liberalisation, globalisation, digitalisation, e-commerce, technology advancement and innovation brought upon by IR 4.0 toward the Malaysian economy and its implication on the employment for citizens, foreign workers and expatriates.

He said the study would identify and assess the number of the workforce within the Special Target Groups categories, namely the bottom 40 per cent of the household income (B40) group, female workers, disabled persons and the elderly.

“The study will also identify and asses the current and future requirements for workforce development through Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) and Life-Long Learning including the Recognition of Prior Learning.

“This is to ensure that 35 per cent of the nation’s total workforce shall be skilled in the various fields by 2020,” he said, adding that the study would also assess, review and formulate policy directions of reducing the country’s dependency on foreign workers and expatriates
