Malaysia upbeat about skills target, but has much changed?

Its HR Minister is certain of hitting the 2020 target, but does the real situation on the ground put a dampener on things?

Despite the many obstacles that Malaysia is currently facing regarding the transformation of its workforce, HR Minister Datuk Richard Riot Jaem remains optimistic that the country is well on track to hitting its target of 35% skilled workers  in the workforce by 2020.

“In 2015, we raised it to 28% and in 2016, the number increased to 31%,” he told local media at the recent launch of the Labour Market Information Data Warehouse (LMIDW) project.

“With the increase, I’m very positive that our target can be achieved.”

As previously covered in HRM Magazine’s Malaysia country report, achieving those labour numbers is tied closely with the government’s goal of also attaining high-income status by 2020.

This goal, encompassing economic, political, and social development was formalised as “Vision 2020” in 1991 and the 11th Malaysia Plan 2016-2020 represents what current Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Abdul Razak says is the country’s “final leg” of that long race to “enter the arena of developed nations”.

But Riot had himself noted last year that the skilled talent shortage in Malaysia is proving a major roadblock to those larger economic targets.

So what has changed since then for the favourable projection revision? And perhaps more importantly, will those numbers mean much for the government’s high-income target?

Although the Malaysian education ministry has placed greater emphasis on technical and vocational education and training, institutions are still struggling to produce graduates with the right skill sets to meet the requirements in those parts of the economy.

Malaysian Employers Federation executive director Datuk Shamsuddin Bardan also noted that most lower-skilled workers are more concerned about keeping their current jobs than looking to upskill to higher-paid job categories.

This lack of motivation to undergo training means they are also increasingly under both real and perceived pressure from immigrant labour, who are willing and able to work for lower wages. There are currently about 3.6 million foreign workers in Malaysia, significantly more than in previous decades.

This skills conundrum is further complicated by a series of other deep-rooted problems.

Data from the government-owned TalentCorp agency, for example, indicates a persistent movement of skills away from Malaysia. Some 2% of tertiary-educated aged 25 and above are now living and working outside of the country, generally because of higher salaries and improved career prospects.

As the labour market is still in transition, it will also be a few more years before a big economic impact can take place.

But Riot’s new-found optimism stems from his faith in initiatives like the LMIDW project, which he believes holds the key to solving the country’s employment issues.

He said the data warehouse will be able to analyse the Malaysia’s labour market, and even track and store comprehensive data of the country’s workforce.

“This will be able to maintain or reduce the country’s unemployment rate at 3.5%,” he said.

“The data will also reduce dependency on foreign workforce and issues of job mismatch.”

Earlier this year, Riot attributed the progress to efforts and initiatives implemented by the Human Resource Development Fund. This includes the 1MalaysiaGRIP programme, which he says “has been successful” in encouraging Malaysian employees to take up new skills.

With 2020 less than three years away, the clock is ticking fast and Malaysia still has to pick up the pace if Riot’s words are to be realised.

Comment: 35% skilled workers in the workforce by 2020, believe this includes those that obtain their Sijil Kemahiran Malaysia (SKM) via the Pengiktirafan Pencapaian Terdahulu (PPT) method. It’s great that those truly skilled & experienced personnels can obtain their SKM via PPT. Unfortunately, there are some bad apples in the industry where they ‘help, by charging exorbitant fees, even unqualified personnels to obtain the SKM‘.
You would have guess it right how these so called consultants & agents got it done 🙁

 

Vocational grads are in demand

KUALA LUMPUR: The starting salary of vocational and technical graduates at between RM2,000 and RM5,000 a month is comparable to university graduates, said Deputy Education Minister Datuk Chong Sin Woon.

“They are highly sought after by industries – 90% of the cohort in our TVET (technical and vocational education and training) who graduated last year are already employed,” said Chong to reporters after the opening of the third High Officials’ Meeting on South-East Asia TVET here yesterday.

He reiterated his call to parents, particularly from the Chinese community, to change the outdated view that university education was more prestigious, especially when university graduates were struggling to secure jobs.

“Vocational and technical graduates don’t just end up opening beauty salons or bakeries, many of them work for multinational companies like (aircraft manufacturer) Boeing, which has a service centre in Malaysia.

“If your children aren’t interested in academic studies, don’t force them. Let them choose their career paths according to their interests,” he said.

Chong said the country urgently needed vocational graduates to build a skilled workforce which was necessary to support industries in aviation, automobile, manufacturing and oil and gas.

“Only 8% of our secondary students are in TVET.

“This is low compared to advanced countries like Germany and Switzerland, where almost 60% of their students are in TVET,” Chong said, adding that the Government also aimed to increase the percentage to 20% by 2020.

In line with that, Chong said the Government had introduced the “Upper Secondary School Industry Apprenticeship” (Pima) at a national school this year, and planned to roll it out to other interested national schools.

Involving only Form Four and Five students, those who join Pima will spend 70% of their time in industrial training and 30% in academic studies.

At the end of the programme, the students will receive a certificate – Sijil Pelajaran Malaysia or Sijil Kemahiran Malaysia.

The Government is also converting unused teachers’ training institutes into polytechnics and vocational colleges.

The High Officials’ Meeting on South-East Asia TVET aims to create a network among leaders in the field and related development agencies in the region.

It also promotes exchange programmes among lecturers and students, joint research programmes and industrial linkages.

Chong said Malaysia, Thailand and Indonesia were among the most active in the network.

Kerajaan isytihar 2017 tahun TVET – Riot

RIOT: Kerajaan telah mengisytiharkan 2017 sebagai Tahun TVET dalam usaha mencapai status negara berpendapatan tinggi menjelang 2020.Kerajaan isytihar 2017 tahun TVET - Riot

SHAH ALAM: Kerajaan telah mengisytiharkan 2017 sebagai Tahun Pendidikan Teknikal dan Latihan Vokasional (TVET) dalam usaha mencapai status negara berpendapatan tinggi menjelang 2020, kata Menteri Sumber Manusia Datuk Seri Richard Riot Jaem.

Beliau berkata inisiatif itu juga seiring dengan ucapan Perdana Menteri Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak semasa membentangkan Bajet 2017 bahawa keupayaan TVET akan dipertingkatkan di bawah bajet tersebut.

“Walaupun perkara ini tidak diumumkan secara rasmi sebelum ini, kalau kita nampak pada ucapan Najib dalam Bajet 2017 tempoh hari, perkataan TVET ditekankan.

“Ini bermakna, dengan penekanan ini, secara langsung dan tidak langsung, TVET menjadi permulaan kepada usaha kerajaan untuk lebih gigih dalam melahirkan ramai modal insan berkemahiran,” katanya pada sidang media selepas penyerahan akreditasi kepada Proton Holdings Berhad sebagai pusat sehenti untuk program Sistem Latihan Dual Nasional, di sini pada Khamis.

Riot berkata untuk mencapai status negara maju berpendapatan tinggi, tenaga kerja berkemahiran tinggi diperlukan dan setakat ini hanya 28 peratus modal insan Malaysia merupakan pekerja berkemahiran dan kerajaan menyasarkan untuk mencapai sekurang-kurangnya 35 peratus menjelang 2020.

Dalam perkembangan lain, beliau berkata Majlis Ekonomi Negara telah meluluskan cadangan Skim Insurans Pekerjaan (EIS) bagi membantu pekerja yang diberhentikan dan usul akan dibentang di Parlimen pada Januari 2018.

Sebelum ini, menteri itu dilapor berkata skim yang memperuntukkan sumbangan majikan dan pekerja itu amat penting untuk memastikan pekerja yang diberhentikan mampu menyara hidup sekurang-kurangnya selama empat bulan sebelum mendapat pekerjaan baharu.

Terdahulu, Riot menyampaikan Diploma Lanjutan Kemahiran Malaysia kepada 30 penerima selain menyaksikan pemeteraian memorandum persefahaman antara Proton dan Jabatan kemahiran Malaysia bagi program pembangunan jangka panjang pekerja berkemahiran.

Pada majlis itu, 27 individu menerima biasiswa Yayasan Proton untuk menyambung pendidikan peringkat Sijil Kemahiran malaysia.
