Manyin: Stop stigmatising vocational education

KUCHING: Vocational education should not be stigmatised as an option for dropouts because skilled workers are key to steering Malaysia towards developed nation status.

Minister of Education, Science and Technological Research Dato Sri Michael Manyin Jawong stressed that parents should instead motivate their children to go for vocational training.

According to him, as early as the 1970s, vocational education became stigmatised as the option for dropouts who failed to excel in public examinations.

“At that time, people thought that you’re there because you’re a dropout, so vocational school was not very popular. Our education system is academic-centric and does not emphasise skills training,” he said during the Kuching Vocational College’s awards presentation ceremony yesterday.

“This is why today we are so far behind in terms of skilled workers compared to other developed nations.” Manyin said Malaysia only has a 7 per cent skilled workforce at present compared to South Korea’s 96 per cent, Germany at 80 per cent, the United States at 75 per cent, and China at 45 per cent.

“Malaysia has only 7 per cent, so how do we compete with the world? So we don’t talk about the 4.0 industrial revolution. We are now still at 2.0 industrial stage,” he lamented.

Manyin pointed out that in the next five to 10 years, about 80 per cent of jobs would be science- and engineering- or skills-based.

He also quoted a projection that 1.5 million jobs in Malaysia would require skills training by 2020.

“Our education system is too exam-oriented and in Malaysia, people are embarrassed to tell others that ‘I’m a plumber’ or ‘I’m an electrician’. In Germany, they don’t ask you what degree you have, but what skills you have,” he added.

He stressed that with the right training, skilled workers could even earn more than those in other sectors.

“Get the correct training and you will be the future of Malaysia. When we reach 4.0 industrial revolution, those with degree qualifications might not be able to get jobs but with specific skills, you will be competitive and employable.

Let vocational training be the first choice for our boys and girls. Tell the world that you have skills, that you can be more productive than others,” he said.

Kawasaki launches Superbike Training Programme

After signing a memorandum of understanding with the GIATMARA vocational skills training institute in November 2016, Kawasaki Motors Malaysia (KMSB) today launched the Superbikes Training Programme at the GIATMARA centre in Batu Caves, Selangor. The event also saw the exchange of a Memorandum of Agreement between the KMSB and GIATMARA.

The event was officiated by Datuk Sri Ismail Sabri and the programme is designed to produce trained technicians with experience and expertise in servicing Kawasaki superbikes. Sabri said GIATMARA trainees will obtain four months of skills training at the fully-equipped Kawasaki workshop at the GITAMARA centre before proceeding to three months of industrial training at the Kawasaki Exclusive Service Centre in Glenmarie.

Upon successful completion of training, the technicians will have the option of working at KMSB or authorised Kawasaki dealers throughout Malaysia, or obtaining a grant from MARA to set up their own workshop specialising in superbikes. The training workshop in the GIATMARA centre was setup at a cost exceeding RM100,000, including Kawasaki diagnostic equipment, specialised tools and an engine assembly clean room.

Meanwhile, Sabri said GIATMARA is also in the process of training qualified electrical technicians to meet the demands of Malaysia’s electrified rail network. These include existing networks such as the MRT and LRT, as well as the High Speed Rail (HSR) project linking Kuala Lumpur and Singapore, and the East Coast Rail Line.


Najib to launch TVet Malaysia

MIRI: Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak is scheduled to launch Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVet) Malaysia on Sept 27.

Minister of Human Resources Datuk Seri Richard Riot Jaem said TVet Malaysia is the Ministry of Human Resources’ (KSM) branding initiative for its TVet programme.

“KSM will continue to empower TVet to be the top choice among the people, including through the launch of TVet Malaysia,” he told a press conference after the Manpower Training Institute (ILJTM) convocation ceremony at the Industrial Training Institute (ILP) Miri on Tuesday.

“I believe that through TVet Malaysia, the number of skilled workers in the country will be improve and will achieve the target of 35 per cent of skilled manpower by 2020.”

He stressed that TVet contributes to a high-income economy and should not be considered a second choice.

Riot added ILJTM will ensure its courses are relevant to National Transformation 2050 (TN50).

“I urge more students to venture into technical and vocational fields to a higher level to meet the needs of local and global industries,” he said.

He noted that 92 per cent of ILJTM graduates, including from ILP and Advanced Technology Training Centre (Adtec), were employed within six months after graduation.

The convocation ceremony saw the presentation of 129 diplomas and 664 certificates to ILP Miri, ILP Kota Samarahan and Adtec Bintulu graduates.

Ministry of Human Resources main driver in developing TVET in Malaysia

Datuk Seri Richard Riot

MIRI: The role of the Ministry of Human Resources as the main driver in developing technical and vocational education and training (TVET) in Malaysia is undisputed, said its minister Dato Sri Richard Riot Jaem.

According to him, various programmes have been designed through the Skills Development Department (JPK) to uphold skills training in tandem with the latest industry and technology development.

“The state has taken a serious emphasis on technical education in the effort to produce a skilled workforce to meet the needs of the industry, especially in the Sarawak Corridor of Renewable Energy (SCORE) development region.

He pointed out that the direct involvement of JPK and the state government in promoting skills training to youths is a proactive move.

“By organising Sarawak World Skills Competition 2017, which began in late August until September 2017, it proves our seriousness in recognising local youth talent in the competing skills fields so it can be featured until the international level,” he said at the ministry’s ‘Majlis Jalinan Ramah Mesra’ dinner here on Monday.

Riot pointed out that his ministry has always been involved in the industry to ensure that students at the Human Resources Department Training Institute (ILJTM) students are exposed to the latest training to enhance their skills.

“A Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) was signed by ILJTM in Sarawak with, among others, Petronas Carigali, Sarawak Energy and Telekom Malaysia. These collaborations are aimed at training students in relevant industry fields,” he said, adding such efforts are value-added to students and will make them more competitive, as well as increase their level of workability in the marketplace.

Riot also highlighted the achievements of former ILJTM graduates in their respective fields who are currently earning high salaries.

“I was made to understand that one of the graduates of Industrial Training Institute (ILP) Kota Samarahan, namely Michael Likik Engong, is working as a senior machinist at Heerema Marine Contractors in the Netherlands and is earning a monthly income above RM20,000.

“Congratulations too to ILP Miri on its Welder Arm project victory in the Asean New Invention Innovation category at Crown Prince CIPTA Award 2017 in Brunei last May. This proves that the Manpower Department (JTM) succeeds in producing high-profile and high-income human capital,” he said.

Assistant Minister of Tourism, Arts and Culture Datuk Lee Kim Shin and JTM deputy director general Norman Kusin were among those present at the dinner.
