Take up vocational courses, M’sians urged

21st century facility: Kamalanathan making himself at home in a Frog classroom at SMK Assunta in Petaling Jaya.

KUALA LUMPUR: The country can lessen its dependence on foreign blue collar labour if only more Malaysians are willing to take up vocational or skills-based education, said Deputy Education Minister Datuk P Kamala­nathan.

Speaking before witnessing the signing of a memorandum of understanding between SG Education Group and Pearson Education here yesterday, Kamalanathan said it was imperative that Malaysia had in place a skills-based workforce in order to achieve Vision 2020.

“Every industry needs a skilled workforce,” he said, adding that it was necessary for parents to recognise that not every child is academically inclined.

For these children, there are still pathways that would allow them to graduate from vocational and polytechnics, before entering univer­sities. However, Kamalanathan stressed that beyond just having knowledge on skills, vocational school graduates must also be industry-ready – meaning that they are ready to start work immediately upon being employed – and not have to undergo additional training.

“There is a huge demand for skilled employees but we need more facilities (to train them). The ministry has the facilities but it is not enough to cope with the demand,” he said, adding that there were 170,000 applications for each polytechnic intake that could only take in about 20,000 students.

At another event earlier, Kamala­nathan said the reduced allocations under the recalibrated Budget 2016 should not affect students.

“We try our best not to touch any expenditure that directly affects funds for the children. Cost-cutting could take other forms, such as using simpler venues for events instead of a hotel,” he said after launching three newly refurbished classrooms at SMK Assunta in Petaling Jaya.

Called Frog Classrooms (after FrogAsia, a YTL subsidiary), the initia­tive is a joint effort between the YTL Foundation, the SMK Assunta board, the parent-teacher association, and the school alumni to provide “21st century classrooms”.

The Leo Club and Interact Club also raised RM10,000 each for the project.

Kamalanathan, who was impressed that the transformation of the three classrooms took just five months, said educational facilities must evolve to keep things fresh.

“It must change according to time, development and, most importantly, the needs of the children,” he said.

A Frog classroom facilitates learning by providing a comfortable IT-ready environment that encour­ages interaction between student and teacher, as well as among students.

Degree no longer a ticket to jobs, says Malaysia’s Deputy Education Minister

PUTRAJAYA – A university degree is not a ticket to get jobs and it may even be a stumbling block at times.

Deputy Education Minister Senator Chong Sin Woon said some graduates had to use their SPM qualifications to apply for jobs after their degrees literally led them nowhere.

“This is very sad but a reality,” he said.

He added that they do not even dare to reveal that they were degree holders for fear of being deemed “over qualified”, which could reduce their chances of being taken in by prospective employers.

In a interview with The Star yesterday, Chong said there were various factors for graduates failing to get jobs.

Apart from an increasingly competitive job market and a slowing economy, he said other reasons included a mismatch between the supply of the types of graduates and the availability of jobs relevant to their qualifications.

“The trend is to go for prestige-sounding courses like engineering, law and accountancy besides medicine and pharmacy for instance.

“Most parents and their children are either ignorant of the problems of mismatch later or they just follow the trend.

“Some of the graduates also find out later that they just do not make the cut for their chosen field,” he said, with many opting to do all sorts of sales jobs to survive.

While many, if not all parents, want their children to have a university degree, Chong advised them to be pragmatic in their choices.

He pointed out that some people were more suited to be a skilled worker and thus vocational or technical training was suitable for them.

“But sad to say, not many people in Malaysia turn to vocational or technical training.

“They do not see such courses as a choice but a last resort,” he said, advising Malaysians to review their perception on this.

In fact, Chong said vocational and technical training was already very popular in advanced countries, comprising 70 per cent of students in Germany and 60 per cent of students in Taiwan.

“Those with training in a field they have interest in can go far in their career. Opting for a course just because it was trendy could spell the beginning of many disappointments,” he said.

Penang inks RM2m German skill training programme to meet industry needs

Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng said Penang’s unemployment figures have remained encouraging with the lowest unemployment rate in Malaysia now at 1.2 per cent. — Picture by K.E. OoiPenang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng said Penang’s unemployment figures have remained encouraging with the lowest unemployment rate in Malaysia now at 1.2 per cent. — Picture by K.E. OoiGEORGE TOWN, Oct 6 — In a bid to meet the high demand for skilled workers in the state, Penang introduced today the first ever RM2 million German Dual Vocational Training (GDVT) programme with the signing of the training programme agreement.

Penang Skills Development Centre (PSDC) signed the agreement with the Malaysian-German Chamber of Commerce and Industry (MGCC) and several host companies for an international training programme aimed to train students on-the-job.

“The vocational schools by the Education Ministry have failed to deliver in terms of quality graduates and this GDVT will fill the needs by the industry for skilled workers,” Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng said, after witnessing the signing.

The DAP-led Penang government sponsored RM2 million towards the programme which will be conducted on-the-job at participating companies such as B Braun, Bosch, Carsem (M) Sdn Bhd, Dynacraft Industries, Inari Technology, Osram and Southern Steel.

“This is a German dual vocational training system and the first of its kind to be introduced in Malaysia,” Lim said at his speech during the signing ceremony at PSDC today.

He pointed out the uniqueness of the programme in which the students are hired by the training company as regular staff with a monthly salary while they are also getting trained concurrently at PSDC.

The first programme under the GDVT scheme in Penang is for mechatronics with a first batch of 22 students.

“We hope to open application for students not working in companies because the state government hopes to take in 500 to 600 students through our sponsorship,” Lim said.

He said the programme will also serve to reduce income inequality in Penang while improving the skills of a segment of the workforce.

“I hope more programmes such as this will be offered in future to result in more specialists in the local labour market,” he said.

Lim also said Penang’s unemployment figures have remained encouraging with the lowest unemployment rate in Malaysia now at 1.2 per cent.

Earlier, PSDC chairman Dr Juergen Schloesser said the GDVT programme is designed to upskill the existing technical workforce, especially from the operator and junior technician levels.

The main objective is to give employees an opportunity to acquire a recognised Malaysian Skills Diploma with a German Chamber (AHK) accreditation, he added.

PSDC will also be rolling out new modules to cover other industry sectors under the GDVT programme by next year.

MCA Youth holds second round of vocational education talks

Leong (centre) and other MCA Youth members with posters promoting the talks.

KUALA LUMPUR: A series of technical and vocational education and training (TVET) education talk will be held in several states to promote its importance as an alternative education and career path for students.

MCA Youth secretary-general Datuk Leong Kim Soon said the second session of the talk was organised following the success of the first session in April.

“Unlike the first session which was organise in our headquarters and several MCA branches, this time, we will have it in secondary schools for students.

“We had the first educational talk of the second session in Segamat, Johor on Sept 13 and response was encouraging.

“More than 1,000 attendees are expected to attend the (TVET) educational talk and is open to the public,” he said during a press conference at Wisma MCA here.

The talks, organised by MCA Youth, will be held in Setiawan, Perak; Kapar, Selangor; Sungai Petani, Kedah; Kuala Lumpur, Seremban, Negeri Sembilan and Teluk Intan throughout October and November.

Leong reiterated that students should look into the importance of TVET as there was a severe shortage of skilled workers, especially in the agricultural and wood-based industries.

“Under the 11th Malaysia Plan (11MP), the Government announced an allocation of RM1bil for the Skills Development Fund for students to receive vocational education.

“However, vocational education should not be seen as an option for poor academic achievers but an additional choice for the right career path one wished to venture in,” he said,

“Parents should also encourage their children to consider vocational education as an alternative path in their career,” he said, adding that there will more talks to be added soon.

Technical training also for the gifted

START a conversation about the education system and someone is bound to be riled up. With global indicators showing that our children lag behind in literacy and numeracy skills, and our graduates lack soft skills and are unemployable, it’s hardly surprising.

The common view is that we need to do something about our education system. But are we certain of the real problems and how we should solve them? First, we know that our human capital falls short in quality and quantity. We need more graduates, particularly in the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM). Statistics show that about two-thirds of our workforce have secondary qualifications and below.

We look up to South Korea and envy its achievement in economic and human capital development. It managed to escape the middle income trap when we haven’t. At an extraordinary rate of 98 per cent, it boasts the highest gross tertiary education enrolment rate in the world. Virtually all South Korean youth go to university after secondary school. Like South Korean parents, Malaysian parents, too, place a high value on university education. We take pride in our children who have obtained a place in universities, and even more so, if they are abroad.

More universities were built locally as demand for higher education spiked, especially with the opening up of the industry to private sector players. As a result, our gross enrolment rates have increased from about 22 per cent in 1998 to about 37 per cent in 2013.

But, along the way, we realise that this approach is slowly breaking down. The economy is suffering from a severe labour mismatch amidst the persistent shortfall in the number of students in STEM.

Perhaps the economy doesn’t need as many university graduates. Even South Korea is being saddled with the same realisation. Although employing about 90 per cent of the South Korean workforce, its small and medium enterprises are unable to attract local talents who instead prefer to work with the higher-paying chaebols, or the top-ranked companies. In 2011, Lee Myung-Bak, the former South Korean president, warned its youth against a reckless entrance into universities. The Economist magazine said that the country is “glutted with graduates”.

But culture and perceptions are not easily changed. Our people — students, parents and policymakers — remain obsessed with obtaining university degrees.

Nowadays, there is increasing attention towards technical and vocational education and training (TVET) and, as PEMANDU’s analysis has revealed, at least 40 per cent of the jobs to be created by 2020 require such qualifications.

A group of educationists and policymakers are now looking to countries, such as Switzerland and Germany, for inspiration. TVET in these countries not only have the society buy-in, it is also employer and market-driven. In Switzerland, about 70 per cent of its youth are enrolled in the vocational stream. About 30 per cent of Swiss companies host apprentices. Likewise, in Germany, about 60 per cent of high school graduates go on a vocational training programme that embeds workplace training. Learning by doing is the cornerstone of their education system. As a result, the labour market in both economies held up pretty well during the European and global economic slowdown.The unemployment rate of 15-to-24-year-olds is relatively close to the adults (25-year-olds and above) unemployment rate, at about 1.5 times, when the global average is about three times.

TVET in Malaysia has been evolving. From vocational schools where fourth formers interested in a vocational course had to apply to special schools, to vocational programmes where students can choose a course at their local school, to basic vocational education where students can enrol in the vocational stream as early as Form One.

Access to vocational education has expanded. But, the main problem remains. Notwithstanding our achievements, vocational education is still seen as a choice for the “less-academically inclined” — a sugar-coated, politically-correct term — instead of it being career-centred. The moment TVET is sold as a route for those unable to perform academically, the more able students and their parents will immediately shy away from this path. The most needed reform would thus be to appreciate that, as much as STEM is no superior to non-STEM, the academic field is also no superior to TVET.

The two famous Adi Putras in this country — one a Maths genius, the other an actor — are both stars, but they are completely different. The point is, TVET should be made available to all, including the talented. We have to decide whether we want to do a South Korea or a Switzerland. Stop tinkering, because we need a whole new system.
