KUALA LUMPUR: Human Resources Minister Datuk Seri Richard Riot Jaem today described reports that the Technical and Vocational Educational Training (TVET) was problematic with no uniformity, as inaccurate.

He said seven ministries involved – the Human Resources, Higher Education, Education, Youth and Sports, Rural and Regional Development, Works and the Agriculture and Agro-based Ministries – had all agreed to develop a synergised programme for TVET.

Riot said this was in line with Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak’s announcement on the implementation of TVET on Sept 27 last year and during the tabling of Budget 2018.

“This is further strengthened by the ministerial level TVET Malaysia Coordination Committee Meeting held on Jan 16, which was also attended by industry representatives,” said Riot.

“We had also agreed to implement TVET Malaysia in a more coordinated way, headed by the Human Resources Ministry.”

In a statement issued by the Human Resource Ministry today, Riot also said the allocation of RM4.9 billion through Budget 2018 proved the government’s strong commitment towards the implementation of TVET, to be utilised by the seven ministries involved.

“The Human Resources Ministry is now increasing efforts to identify issues and problems, implement programmes and initiatives and set objectives in terms of direction through the collaborative efforts between the seven ministries,” said Riot.

“This is to ensure the implementation of TVET Malaysia is in line with the domestic and international economic landscape, technological developments and requirements under the Industrial Revolution 4.0.”

Riot said, the Jan 16 meeting had also determined the need to increase skilled labour from 28 percent in 2015 to 35 percent by 2020, and consequently the need to increase the quantity and quality of TVET qualified workers to 225,000 in 2020, from 164,000 five years earlier.

He said the TVET Council, which is to be chaired by the Prime Minister, will act as the highest authority in determining the policies, implementation and coordination of TVET Malaysia.

JTM, Gamuda dan Yayasan Peneraju Jalin Kerjasama Strategik Lahir Tenaga Kerja Mahir Projek MRT

Sumber imej: The Star Online

KUALA LUMPUR, 24 Jan (Bernama) — Jabatan Tenaga Manusia (JTM), Gamuda Berhad dan Yayasan Peneraju Pendidikan Bumiputera baru-baru ini telah menjalinkan kerjasama strategik untuk melahirkan tenaga kerja mahir projek Mass Rapid Transit (MRT).

JTM dalam satu kenyataan berkata, kerjasama strategik ini merupakan latihan industri di bawah Program JTM – Peneraju Skill Iltizam iaitu program yang menjanjikan graduan lepasan TVET daripada Institusi Latihan Jabatan Tenaga Manusia (ILJTM) peluang pekerjaan dalam pembinaan 11 stesen bawah tanah untuk projek MRT Laluan Sungai Buloh-Serdang-Putrajaya (SSP) yang dijangka akan disiapkan menjelang tahun 2022.

“Menyedari akan kepentingan serta keperluan sumber tenaga manusia daripada kalangan warga tempatan dalam melaksanakan projek ini, JTM telah diberi mandat oleh Yayasan Peneraju melalui Program JTM – Peneraju Skill Iltizam bagi melatih bakal pekerja untuk berkhidmat dengan Gamuda Berhad dalam dalam projek MRT sebagai Tunnel Crew, Erector Operator dan Assistant Mechanic,” demikian menurut kenyataan itu.

JTM katanya telah merangka strategi yang khusus dalam melaksanakan Program JTM – Peneraju Skill Iltizam ini yang akan dilaksanakan pada tahun 2018.

Program ini akan melibatkan lima buah institusi yang terpilih iaitu Pusat Latihan Teknologi Tinggi (ADTEC) Kemaman, ADTEC Bintulu, Institut Latihan Perindustrian (ILP) Pedas, ILP Kota Samarahan dan ILP Kota Kinabalu.

Seramai 280 orang belia Malaysia disasarkan mengikuti latihan untuk tahun ini dan mereka akan menjalani latihan intensif selama tiga bulan di ILP dan ADTEC dan akan menjalani Latihan Industri (LI) yang khusus dalam bidang Tunneling selama tiga bulan di Gamuda’s Tunnelling Training Academy (TTA), Selangor.

Peserta yang berjaya tamat latihan akan diberi sijil ‘Skills Proficiency Certificate’ oleh City & Guilds, United Kingdom sebelum diserap menjadi sebahagian daripada krew pembinaan Projek MRT.

JTM berkata selain daripada menyediakan pekerja kepada Projek MRT, kerjasama strategik antara ketiga-tiga pihak ini juga membolehkan 200 orang belia tempatan mengikuti program Peneraju Skil Iltizam Industralised Building System (IBS) Production Technician di ILP Kuala Terengganu.

Sistem Binaan Berindustri (IBS) juga dikenali sebagai pembinaan pasang siap digunakan secara meluas di negara-negara maju kerana kaedah ini membolehkan komponen-komponen binaan dihasilkan di kilang dalam persekitaran terkawal dan dihantar ke tapak pembinaan untuk dipasang menjadi struktur dengan tenaga kerja yang minimum.

Teknologi IBS Ini secara tidak langsung dapat meningkatkan kualiti bangunan dan kerja, mengurangkan penggunaan buruh asing di tapak projek serta mempercepatkan kerja pembinaan. Melalui program ini, peserta akan mengikuti latihan kemahiran serta LI selama 5 bulan sebelum diambil sebagai pekerja IBS di Gamuda Berhad.

Sementara itu, JTM berkata penglibatan Yayasan Peneraju di dalam kerjasama ini membolehkan peserta mengikuti program ini secara percuma, selain diberikan elaun bulanan sepanjang latihan.

Program-program TVET yang ditawarkan bukan sahaja membolehkan kemahiran spesifik kepada pekerjaan dapat dikuasai dalam tempoh yang singkat, malah ianya membolehkan mereka terlibat secara langsung dalam industri pembinaan di negara ini.

Selari dengan visi JTM iaitu menjadi organisasi peneraju dalam membangunkan tenaga kerja yang berdaya saing, Program JTM – Peneraju Skil Iltizam diharap dapat melahirkan warga tempatan yang berkemahiran serta mampu memenuhi keperluan industri pembinaan.

Rosy future for mobile eSports

GAMING is a beloved pastime for many today. It’s entertaining and engaging as compared with watching television or listening to the radio.

A subset of gaming that has taken the world by storm is eSports. It is still gaming except that it’s hardcore competitive in nature. We have seen eSports grow into a global phenomenon but it doesn’t end there. It is expected to become even bigger in 2018, and here’s why.

RISE OF MOBILE ESPORTS
One of the key factors that is pushing the eSports scene in Malaysia and the rest of the world is Mobile eSports. Typically, the eSports scene will focus on games such as DotA 2, League of Legends and Fifa, but with smartphones becoming more and more powerful, it allows for more complex games to be played on the device.

In fact, we saw a number of mobile eSports tournaments last year such as the Mobile Legends Southeast Asia Cup at Tropicana City Mall, Petaling Jaya with a prize pool of US$10,000 (RM40,000), Season 3 of Vainglory Malaysia League at Cyberjaya, and the Garena Arena of Valor tournament in Kuala Lumpur with a prize pool of RM70,000.

It is true that Mobile eSports has still not cemented its place in the scene but it is the most accessible game to the masses since it just involves the use of a smartphone.

According to former MBT Talon eSports player Keegan “Keegs” Tan, “eSports will definitely grow this year since eSports-oriented games are getting more and more accessible with the advent of mobile games. It acts as a gateway to expose people to eSports.”

With Mobile eSports expected to move forward, it’s not hard to see why this will be a major driving force for the success of the local eSports scene.

GAME-BASED EDUCATION
Another factor contributing to the success of eSports in Malaysia is the establishment of a few eSports and gaming-based education programmes. The first is the year-long Riot Games Student Ambassador Program which is available in 28 universities across Malaysia.

Students work to nurture the growth of League of Legends communities in their respective campuses via tournaments and community events. They will be given a healthy budget to manage that.

Then there’s the Garena Student Alliance programme that aims to empower student gamers to build a thriving gaming community and eSports scene in their respective campuses. It is very similar in nature to the Riot Games programme, and both aim to equip students with real-world skills such as Public Relations and Events Management while exposing them to real world eSports scenarios.

There’s also the Johor-based Academy of eSports. At the moment, two vocational certificate programmes are offered; Professional eSports Athlete and eSports Events Management. Not only will you be educated and trained by experienced eSports professionals, you are also given a certificate at the end of the stint to prove your competency and give yourself a career boost.

BIG MONEY
It is no secret that eSports has the potential to bring in lots of revenue. At Level UP KL 2017, vice president of Malaysia Digital Economy Corp’s Creative Content and Technologies, Hasnul Hadi Samsudin, said Malaysia has recorded earnings of RM1.2 billion in games export alone. This number is expected to increase in the coming years.

Coming from their efforts in the Malaysian eSports scene as of last year, Garena’s partnership manager, Fern Yeap, said: “In Malaysia, there is growing support from commercial brands, the media and government as well as the community. The collaboration between all stakeholders increases exposure and awareness, which in turn expands resources and legitimacy for the local scene.”

She added that Southeast Asia’s current title as the fastest growing region for eSports gives it more opportunities for local eSports to scale both regionally and internationally. “Consultants and industry experts are predicting eSports’ continuous growth for the years to come.” said Yeap.

In simpler terms, there has been an increase in support for eSports which in turn brings in more revenue. This inadvertently will turn eSports into a bigger phenomenon.

SOLIDIFIED PRESENCE
Despite how big it has become, eSports is still largely a growing industry in Malaysia. Stakeholders like MDEC has been pushing for the growth of local eSports industry to put Malaysia as the regional games hub of Southeast Asia under the #MYGAMEON initiative.

In December last year, Youth and Sports Minister Khairy Jamaluddin announced that the National Sports Council will form a special unit to promote the eSports arena in Malaysia. “A new unit at MSN will be set up to look at eSports as it will be featured at the 2022 Asian Games. eSports has already been recognised as a sport by The Olympic Council of Asia and we cannot be left behind in training our athletes,” said Khairy.

While not much is known about the formation of the eSports unit, it will definitely be a game changer as far as eSports is concerned.

Professional gamer Ashley “Vause” Foo from the M8 Tempest eSports team feels that the formation of the eSports unit will “help in changing public perception of eSports.

“ It will promote healthy gaming habits, such as eSports centres closing by midnight, which is currently being practised by The Pantheon eSports Centre, which will then increase society’s acceptance, and eventually, turn Malaysia into a major eSports tourist destination.”

CONCLUSION
With commitments shown by the major stakeholders including government agencies, we can expect eSports to grow bigger. We also have a diverse talent pool that is competitive enough in the global stage, to do the country proud.

In fact, Malaysia created history at DotA 2 – The International 2017 when a team was placed third at the event, earning more than US$2.6 million prize money. That is a testament to how capable we are in the eSports scene.

With growing popularity and booming revenue potential, it’s game on for the local eSports industry.

KOLEJ VOKASIONAL MELAHIRKAN PEKERJA BERKEMAHIRAN & MEMBINA ‘BUSINESS LEGACY’

Keputusan Peperiksaan PT3 baru sahaja berlalu. Saya yakin dan percaya, calon calon telah berpuas hati denganhasil pencapaian mereka setelah 3 tahun berhempas pulas dalam mencari dan menghasilkan kejayaan. Tidak ketinggalan terdapat juga air mata ibu bapa yang mengalir kerana kejayaan anak anak mereka.

Sebagai seorang guru, PT3 bagi saya merupakan satu cara menghalakan pelajar ke bidang yang di minati mereka. Pentaksiran PT3 adalah berdasarkan penilaian dalaman. Ini bermaksud guru guru sendiri yang menilai calon calon ini dan dalam masa yang sama bimbingan diberi sepenuh jiwa

Adik saya merupakan pelajar cemerlang PT3 2016 di SMK TALIB KARIM, Alor Gajah, Melaka. keputusannya untuk ke KV sangat memeranjatkan saya. Pada awalnya memang saya tidak setuju dia melanjutkan pelajarnnya di KV atas beberapa perkara.

Kini beliau sedang mengikuti Program KV dalam bidang KULINARI.

Antara perkara utama yang saya tidak setuju dia ke KV ialah, Pelajar lepasan Kolej Vokasional (KV) tidak layak melanjutkan pengajian ke peringkat ijazah sarjana muda meskipun mempunyai Diploma Vokasional Malaysia (DVM) kerana universiti awam (UA) tidak mengiktiraf diploma terbabit.

Antara perkara utama yang saya tidak setuju dia ke KV ialah, Pelajar lepasan Kolej Vokasional (KV) tidak layak melanjutkan pengajian ke peringkat ijazah sarjana muda meskipun mempunyai Diploma Vokasional Malaysia (DVM) kerana universiti awam (UA) tidak mengiktiraf diploma terbabit.

Rangkaian Universiti Teknikal Malaysia (MTUN), iaitu

1) Universiti Malaysia Perlis (UNIMAP)
2) Universti Teknikal Malaysia (UTeM)
3) Universiti Malaysia Pahang (UMP)
4) Universiti Tun Hussein onn (UTHM)
menetapkan antara syarat kelayakan untuk memasuki program ijazah sarjana muda ialah mempunyai Sijil Pelajaran Malaysia (SPM), namun graduan DVM tidak menduduki peperiksaan itu.

Ini kerana pelajar terbabit memasuki KV menggunakan keputusan Pentaksiran Tingkatan 3 (PT3) dan mengikuti kursus kemahiran itu selama empat tahun tanpa perlu menduduki SPM untuk memperoleh DVM.

Tetapi ini bukan masalah yang besar. saya percaya aliran KV ini merupakan aliran yang baru. Carta alirnya tidak sama seperti pelajar yang ambil akademik sepenuhnya seperti SPM.

===============================================
CARTA ALIR KV – IBU BAPA & CALON KV PERLU TAHU !
===============================================

Pelajar KV mempunyai perjalanan mereka tersendiri. Perjalanan mereka amat berbeza dengan pelajar akademik. Bagi saya mana mana pilihan mempunyai risiko. Jika ambil jalan SPM tapi malas belajar, apa gunanya. Betul tak ?

Persoalannya bagaimana pelajar KV ingin teruskan pengajian mereka ke peringkat seterusnya ?. Graduan Kolej Vokasional (KV) perlu memenuhi beberapa kriteria ditetapkan Kementerian Pendidikan Tinggi (KPT) untuk membolehkan mereka melanjutkan pengajian ke peringkat Ijazah Sarjana Muda.

Antara kriteria itu ialah:

* Mempunyai pengalaman bekerja selama dua tahun untuk mendapat Sijil Program Akreditasi Pembelajaran Berasaskan Pengalaman Terdahulu (APEL), atau

* Memiliki kelayakan Sijil Vokasional Malaysia (SVM) yang sudah disetarakan oleh Lembaga Peperiksaan (LP) kepada Sijil Pelajaran Malaysia (SPM) 3 kredit, iaitu memperoleh Purata Nilai Gred Keseluruhan (PNGK) Akademik: 3.33; PNGK Vokasional: 3.67; kepujian dalam Bahasa Melayu dan kompeten semua Modul Vokasional.

Selepas memperoleh keputusan itu, graduan KV perlu mendapat kelulusan khas daripada KPT sehingga akreditasi penuh program diploma diperoleh.

Maka di sini, pelajar perlu tahu perjalanan mereka dan visualkan ke mana aku selepas ini dan apa yang aku nak capai ?

Bila anda visualkan perjalanan anda, barulah anda nampak jalan dan keyakinan akan menjelma bagi mendorong diri anda menuju kejayaan.

============
KELEBIHAN KV
=============

Kementerian Pendidikan dalam kenyataannya berkata, 83.1 peratus graduan KV mendapat pekerjaan mengikut bidang pilihan dalam tempoh tiga bulan selepas graduasi, sekali gus membuktikan mereka menerima pengiktirafan daripada industri.

Kementerian itu menekankan Transformasi Pendidikan Vokasional (TPV) bertujuan mengarusperdana pendidikan vokasional setanding dengan aliran pendidikan perdana.

Pengarah Bahagian Pendidikan Teknik dan Vokasional (BPTV), Zainuren Mohd Nor, berkata kira-kira 83 peratus daripada 2,273 pelajar lepasan KV berjaya memperoleh pekerjaan dalam bidang berkaitan sebaik tamat pengajian, Disember lalu.

Katanya, data yang direkodkan oleh KV itu adalah berdasarkan pelajar kohort pertama yang sudah memperoleh Diploma Vokasional Malaysia (DVM) pada 2016.

Beliau berkata, jumlah tinggi pelajar KV yang diterima bekerja dalam tempoh dua bulan selepas tamat pengajian menunjukkan kursus ditawarkan KV memenuhi kehendak industri.

“Jumlah graduan DVM yang mendapat pekerjaan adalah lebih tinggi berbanding sasaran awal yang ditetapkan iaitu sebanyak 70 peratus bekerja, 20 peratus menyambung pengajian ke peringkat lebih tinggi dan 10 peratus lagi menjadi usahawan.

“Bagaimanapun, data yang diperoleh menunjukkan perkembangan memberangsangkan apabila 83 peratus pelajar ditawarkan bekerja oleh pihak industri dan ini membuktikan kursus kemahiran di KV menepati matlamat penubuhan KV iaitu melahirkan tenaga kerja mahir,” katanya

Dengan kata lain , saya dapat ringkaskan kelebihan KV ;

1. Lebih fokuskan pelajar ke arah apa yang diminati

2. Pertingkatkan kemahiran yang ada pada pelajar sehingga capai kepada berkemahiran tinggi (pakar)

3. Kemahiran yang ditawarkan di KV merupakan permintaan TINGGI dalam pelbagai industri di Malaysia

4. Pelajar KV mudah membawa diri kerana mereka lebih praktikal

============
KESIMPULAN
============

Akhir kata sebagai seorang guru, saya dapati prog KV ini sangat bagus bagi pelajar yang ingin ke hadapan dalam dunia kemahiran dan praktikal.

Jika di zaman saya, Nilai dan kuantiti A dipandang tinggi. Tetapi bila di universiti plagiat dia lahh ‘hero’ nya. Suruh buat presentation terketar ketar. Akhirnya ilmu sebagai teori sahaja. Ijazah yang utama. janji grade.

Setelah tamat Ijazah ke hulur ke hilir bawa ijazah untuk mohon kerja. Online sana online sini mohon kerja. Bila tak dapat kerja barulah nak belajar jual burger, atau apa apa berkaitan kemahiran atau praktikal.

Tetapi tidak bidang atau program KV. program ini sangat menarik kerana menyediakan dari awal bagaimana nak teruskan kehidupan dalam dunia yang penuh pancaroba ini dan ekonomi tak menentu.

Yang pasti calon KV dan ibu ayah perlu hadam dan fahamkan perjalanan calon KV agar di pertengahan tiada penyesalan dan di akhir pengajian tiada kehampaan.

21 disadvantaged girls graduate from cosmetics company’s course

(Standing, from left) NCOW co-chairmann Datuk Ramani Gurusamy, L’Oreal Malaysia senior corporate communications executive Susan Koh, YWCA president Joanne Yeoh, VTOC chairman June Yeoh (standing, second from right) and Loh (standing right) with the graduates.

Twenty-one Malaysian women from underprivileged backgrounds are now certified hairdressers and make-up artists, after completing the 12-month L’Oreal Malaysia’s Beauty For A Better Life programme.

They graduated at a lively ceremony held at the Vocational Training Opportunity Center (VTOC), witnessed by their proud instructors and family members.

At the event, the graduating class of 2017 put together a graduation hair and makeup show, showcasing their skills by presenting three different looks – Glamour, Romantic and Rock.

The L’Oreal Foundation launched Beauty For A Better Life worldwide, extending a helping hand to young, disadvantaged women in more than 20 countries from Latin America, Asia and the Middle East, Africa and Europe.

Ten women successfully graduated from the programme last year, and three of them secured a job at Centro Hair Salon in The Gardens Mall, Kuala Lumpur, immediately after completing the training.

This year, L’Oreal Malaysia expanded the programme to include a new category, Beauty Care to give participants skills and knowledge required for the make-up industry.

The programme encompasses six months of comprehensive training that includes courses on makeup, bridal and nails.

Graduates of the programme also get the chance to intern at leading cosmetic stores such as Shu Uemura, Urban Decay and YSL Beauty, allowing them to gain first-hand experience.

L’Oréal Malaysia corporate communications director Jean Loh said, “Last year, we had 12 girls who graduated as certified hairdressers through Beauty For A Better Life.

“This year, with the introduction of the Beauty Care programme, we are immensely proud to see 21 young women graduates.

“In line with our company’s credo, L’Oreal Malaysia believes that regardless of their background or financial ability, these girls should be given equal opportunity to obtain the skills and tools needed to integrate themselves into society.

“By helping them achieve the first step of acquiring knowledge, we can give back to the community and encourage these ambitious young women to make a difference in their own lives,” said Loh.

The L’Oreal Malaysia’s Beauty For A Better Life programme was made possible through a partnership with the National Council of Women’s Organization (NCWO) and the VTOC by YWCA.

As a leading advocate of women’s rights, NCWO unites women’s organisations to respect, protect and fulfil human rights, promote the development and advancement of women at all levels, advocate and monitor the full participation, inclusion and representation of all women in decision-making, as well as ensure equitable access for women as agents and beneficiaries in national development.

VTOC, a project of YWCA Kuala Lumpur, provides vocational training for employment to young women and girls from economically-disadvantaged segments of Malaysian society.

Since its inception in 1998, a total of 1,524 young women have benefited from its courses.

Vocational education and training sector is still missing out on government funding: report

There is a stark difference between schools, VET and higher education spending in Australia, according to our research published today.

The Mitchell Institute’s 2017 report shows that while spending on schools and higher education continues to grow, vocational education and training (VET) expenditure is going in the opposite direction. We are spending less on VET now than we were a decade ago, in real terms.


The chart below shows the trends in expenditure over an 11-year period to 2015-16. This analysis uses 2005-06 as the base index year. Indexing enables comparison of change over time from a common starting point, which is 100 here. So, an increase from 100 to 102 would represent a 2% increase. All expenditure values are in 2015-16 dollars, converted to real terms using a GDP deflator.



This analysis was done using Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) data. While more detailed data are available for each education sector through different collections, the ABS applies the same method for estimating expenditure for each sector. This makes it the best means of making a comparison across schools, VET and higher education.

The figures include all expenditure by government entities – meaning by governments (to both public and private education providers) and also by public schools, TAFEs and universities. This gives us an approximate picture of where the dollars are flowing, and how this is changing over time.

What’s important here is the increasing disparity in expenditure growth between the sectors, particularly between VET and higher education.

VET missing out

This comparison confirms widespread concerns about VET going backwards. Expenditure in 2015-16 was 4.7% below the level in 2005-06.

This tells a worrying story about quality vocational education and training not being a priority for governments.

Key growth employment areas like aged care, early childhood education and hospitality rely on vocational training for skilled workers. Building up vocationally qualified workers in the growing service and caring industries will be essential, particularly as employment in the manufacturing sector declines.

Universities going from strength to strength

Higher education has followed a very different path. Spending has grown by 53% over the 11 years from 2005-06.

These figures include spending on more than just teaching and learning and universities have other significant sources of revenue, including international students.

Even so, it is clear that governments, and Australians collectively, are prioritising spending on university education over vocational training.

Early years catching up

This is the second time preschool has been included in this overview of education expenditure.

The chart below compares growth in expenditure on preschool, alongside the other education sectors over the same 11-year period.



Although coming off a much lower base, preschool spending grew rapidly following the National Partnership Agreement on Universal Access to Early Childhood Education in 2009. This growth reflects a growing awareness of the importance of the early years among governments.


This comparison shows where we are focusing our education resources as a nation.

These diverging patterns of expenditure across the education sectors reflect our longstanding fragmented approach to policy and funding, particularly at the tertiary level.

Under current policy settings, it is not hard to imagine the already considerable discrepancy between VET expenditure and higher education and school expenditure continuing to grow.

This report, the fourth in the series, should prompt government to consider a more strategic approach to distributing resources across the education sector.

The uneven approach between VET and higher education in particular reflects an ongoing failure to conceive of the two as part of a single tertiary education system.

This blindspot continues to act as a barrier to the creation of the responsive, integrated education and training system many are arguing is needed to sustain economic growth in a changing world.

Comment: Malaysia should be applauded for going the other way round but then, leakages are still rampant. Recent swindled fund of RM40 million from PTPK is a very good example. It has caused the private providers to have a very hard time recruiting students due to very low quota for funding
