Dual certification in digital marketing

Students undergo experiential learning at the ICT lab and gain technical skills in digital marketing at BTVET College.

DIGITAL marketing is essential in the growth and development of any business today. With that, BERJAYA TVET College (BTVET), through its Centre for Technology and Innovation (CTI), officially launched its first certified training programme in Digital Marketing.

BTVET’s Digital Marketing Certification Programme is said to be power-packed with intensive modules that incorporate real-world “DigiM-Technopreneur” experiences and successful business case studies. It is designed to equip SPM school leavers with practical skills in becoming professional digital marketers.

The Certificate in Digital Marketing programme was made possible through the collaborative efforts between BTVET and Digital Marketing Consultant (DMC). The programme which runs for 12 months includes a four-month internship placement. “Upon completion of this programme, students will receive dual certification from both organisations. These enhance job employability in this current digital era and propels a student in becoming digital entrepreneurs,” said BERJAYA TVET College president, Kanendran T. Arulrajah.

Additionally, the CTI offers other TVET (Technical and Vocational Education and Training) programmes, which include the Certificate (Sijil Kemahiran Malaysia) in Information Technology and Diploma Kemahiran Malaysia in Web Development. These are recognised by the Ministry of Human Resources. The programmes focus on experiential learning and use the “Vocational-Industry Connectivity” approach, which teach pragmatic skill-based enhancement modules at both Certificate and Diploma levels.

There is also the Advanced Diploma in IT and Support Systems, City and Guilds (UK), which encompasses 16 months of study and eight months of internship. This course is globally recognised and provides students with the opportunity to pursue Degree programmes abroad.

Aditionally, there is the Skills Proficiency Certificate in Office Applications for IT, City and Guilds (UK), for those seeking vocational training, ideal for working adults seeking international certification. The course is open to special needs’ students, who will then be offered IT courses according to their interests, gradually.

BTVET also collaborates with Orade, a “smart partners”, and incorporates Orade modules in its curriculum. This helps develop students in becoming “skill-based techno-practitioners”, in demand in the IT industry.

At last year’s Malaysia Abilympics Competition, BTVET was represented by three students who competed in three different IT categories. Adam Abd Rahman, aged 19, took home the first prize in Data Processing while Mak Sai Wah came in second in Word Processing. The competition was organised by The Malaysian Council for Rehabilitation (MCR).

TVET good option for furthering studies and getting jobs, says Kula

Human Resources Minister M Kula Segaran.

SEREMBAN: Technical and vocational education and training (TVET), which emphasises skills, is a good option for furthering studies, said Human Resources Minister M Kula Segaran.

He said this was in line with the country’s aim to produce more skilled workers as currently the percentage of skilled workers stood at only 28% when the target by 2020 is 35%.

“Skills training is very important and the country’s progress depends on it.

“I hope our young will pick TVET as the first choice. Parents should not solely be looking at sending their children to universities because TVET is no less important,” he told reporters after attending a “Human resource ministry with the people” event in Rantau here today.

He also said involvement of the Chinese and Indian communities in TVET was rather lukewarm, standing at 1% and 5% respectively, and that the ministry was intensifying efforts to encourage higher participation from them as well as the Orang Asli community.

He added it was easy for TVET students to get jobs after completing their courses, citing the take-up rate now stood at 94%.

On other matters, Kula said the ministry held “Meet-the-Customer” sessions at its headquarters in Putrajaya every Tuesday from 8am to 10am, whereby not only top ministry officials would be present but he himself.

In conjunction with the progamme, the minister also made a walkabout at the new market in Rantau town.

SPM certificate holders will find plenty of courses and career options at the Education Fair 2019 at Mydin Mall in Bukit Mertajam, Penang, on Saturday and Sunday.

The fair will feature 32 colleges, universities, technical vocational education and training (TVET) institutions in over 50 booths from 11am to 6pm.

SME Association of Seberang Prai president Francis Wong said the timing would be just right for SPM holders to look for suitable courses and career options.

“This is perfect time for students to explore their options in further studies.

“The location is also strategic as there are plenty of car parking lots. It is convenient for the public,” he said during a press conference at Komtar recently.

Deputy Chief Minister II Dr P. Ramasamy said the fair organised by the state government is aimed at helping school leavers and SPM candidates in deciding on the most suitable study course to pursue after completing secondary education.

“It is also the first time we are introducing TVET in this expo held for the third time since 2017.

“Students and parents may see TVET as ‘inferior education’ but TVET actually has a wide scope in the market and is packed with potential,” he added.

TVET – Maybe a better alternative than academic?

“Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) should be rebranded as an attractive pathway for SPM leavers, especially for those not academically inclined”

Many parents, especially Chinese, would not even consider TVET/skills courses as it’s been looked as a 2nd class education. However, do you know that advanced countries like Germany, it is better to be a TVET graduate, armed with skills that have high demand in the market such as crane operator, underwater welding than university graduate (especially general degrees like social science, business studies, marketing etc) with no job prospect at all. AND do you know that 80-90% technical skills graduates are employed within 6 months upon graduation?

Perspective aside, awareness is also an issue as there are still many parents & children unaware about the prospects. Even if they know, most do not know where to seek advice or know where these TVET institutions are.

Worry not, we’re here to help. If you think you/your child/nephew or niece is more suitable to pursue the TVET pathway, kindly fill up your details here.

1. If you/your child insist on pursuing academic pathway but has poor SPM results, read here on what can be done
2. Most TVET institutions accept students from 16 years of age.
3. If budget is really a constraint & you can’t even afford to have a study loan, you may consider public TVET institutions but there are disadvantages in studying in those institutions (you may read more at the link given)

Mukhriz: Youth should look at TVET’s marketability

Datuk Seri Mukhriz Mahathir said the perception that TVET as the second option should stop as TVET graduates have proven to have gained popularity in the industry especially in the era of the fourth industrial revolution (IR 4.0). — Picture by Mukhriz Hazim

JITRA, March 17 — Young people have been urged to consider the Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) for all its advantages while furthering their education, especially in terms of graduates’ marketability.

Kedah Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Mukhriz Mahathir said the perception that TVET as the second option should stop as TVET graduates have proven to have gained popularity in the industry especially in the era of the fourth industrial revolution (IR 4.0).

“TVET has been through the current paradigm shift and I welcome the industry players to ensure the training carried out to meet the needs of the industry today.

“Therefore, the government transforms and empowers TVET so that it will be the best choice for parents and students as well as to enhance their job marketability,” he said this in his speech at the opening ceremony of  the TVET Education Skills Development @Kedah Carnival here today.

He said there were more than 45 institutions in the state offering students various skills, among others, information technology, electrical and electronics, culinary and agriculture.

“Candidates of Sijil Pelajaran Malaysia (SPM), especially those who with results that may not be up to mark, I hope they will take the advantage of this TVET because of the wider job opportunities for those who have the skills to work in the industrial sector in the state,” he said.

Poor SPM Results? Here’s What You Can Do Next To Further Your Education

So, the day of reckoning is over and you’ve gotten your SPM results.

If your results aren’t as you expected, or if you fell short on some subjects that you thought you could have scored, it’s okay to feel gloomy or guilty that you didn’t utilise more of your time to study.

But after a week of being down in the dumps, it’s probably time for you to pick yourself up again. After all, SPM is just a small test in the grand scheme of things. Chances are, no one is going to harass you about it before the year ends.

So instead of crying about it, here are 5 things you can do if your SPM results are not as good as you anticipated.

#1. Appeal your grades

Poor spm result what to do next - 1 Appeal your grades

If you are seeking to meet the entry requirements for your desired pre-university course, or if you think your grades are right below the borderline to a higher grade, you can try getting your paper marked again.

With a fee to part with (RM100 per subject), you can have your papers remarked and hopefully (fingers crossed!), you will be able to attain a higher grade that will open doors to various opportunities.

To submit an appeal, you will need to fill up a form called Borang Permohonan Penyemakan Semula Keputusan Peperiksaan/Kes T, which is on the Board of Examination Malaysia (Lembaga Peperiksaan Malaysia) website. You can also find it at any of these places:

  • Your school
  • Assessment and Examination Unit / Sector (Sektor / Unit Penilaian dan Peperiksaan)
  • State Department of Education (Jabatan Pendidikan Negeri)
  • Examination review counter in the Board of Examination Malaysia in Putrajaya (Kaunter Semak Semula Lembaga Peperiksaan Putrajaya)

You need to make sure that your form reaches the Board of Examination Malaysia’s office within 30 days after SPM results are announced or else it will not be processed. Your reviewed results will be posted to you 2 months after the appeal deadline. Ensure that you attach the following required documents:

  • verified copy of your official SPM 2018 results
  • verified certificate or copy of your pentaksiran berdasarkan sekolah (PBS) or school-based assessments by your school principal or Pegawai Kerajaan Kumpulan A

*Incomplete forms will not be processed.

#2. Retake your subjects

Poor spm result what to do next - 2 Retake your subjects

If you are not confident that having your papers reviewed will improve your grades, or if you want to aim for a higher grade, perhaps you can choose to resit your papers.

For a step-by-step guide on repeating your SPM subjects, click here.

Do note that for SPM Ulangan in Junethere are only 3 subjects that you can register for. These include:

  • Mathematics
  • Bahasa Melayu
  • Sejarah

If you’d like to retake papers for other subjects, you will need to register as an SPM private candidate and sit for the papers with the rest of the present year SPM students in November / December.

You will need to consider this option thoroughly as it will take another year for you to obtain better grades. By then, your peers may have already completed a year of their pre-university studies so be sure to make it count!  

Resitting papers is usually for students who are looking to enter specific pre-university or degree courses. So if you are looking to study a foundation course and you’re just shy of one credit, this is an option you can consider!

#3. Pursue diploma or certificate courses

Poor spm result what to do next - 3 Pursue diploma or certificate courses

If you’re missing a couple of credits from your SPM slip, you can also consider other pathways, such as pursuing a diploma or certificate. After all, they can still lead you to selected degree courses.

For a start, a diploma only requires 3 credits at SPM. Upon completion, you can then progress to the second year of a relevant degree. This makes your total study duration similar to taking a foundation then a degree.

Certificate courses, on the other hand, typically require only 1 credit, as long as you pass Bahasa Melayu and History. Completing a certificate will allow you to progress to a diploma and subsequently a degree.

So if you think retaking your papers will not change your grades, you may consider these alternatives, provided that you meet the entry requirements.

#4. Pursue skills/TVET certificate & diploma courses

If you don’t have enough credits but intend to pursue an academic diploma, some University or University Colleges also accept Sijil Kemahiran Malaysia (SKM) as an entrance requirement.

No worries, if you don’t have any credit or worse still, failed in your SPM (parents force you to complete SPM despite your interest is in skills based programs), you can always pursue your interest in skills/TVET courses.

Remember, pursuing skills/TVET courses should not be your last resort but must be your interest. Studies has shown that graduates with skills are much more employable – 80 to 90 per cent of them are able to get a job after six months upon graduation (vs graduates from academic background. Those taking cert/diploma/degree in business studies, marketing, information technology, social science courses will find it hard to land a job, unlike those who take Technical and Vocational Education Training (TVET) courses.

#5. Contact us

If you are undecided on what course or where to pursue your TVET/skills courses, you can get in touch with us here or call us at +6012 3123430. We will be happy to help!

At the end of the day, it doesn’t matter if your SPM results are good or bad because it’s not the end of the road yet. There are still plenty of things you can do to secure your future. Many have managed to become successful, even without a string of As.

Banglasia atau Malaysia?

Banglasia adalah sebuah filem mengenai pekerja asing dari Bangladesh yang datang bekerja di Malaysia. Ceritanya adalah mengenai perjuangannya mencari rezeki yang mencukupi sambil mengharungi pelbagai isu-isu kontroversi yang berlaku di Malaysia.

Dah tonton Dirty Harris yang asalnya seorang pegawai polis, datang ke Malaysia boleh pula jadi pekerja binaan, tukang masak, mekanik kenderaan motor, juru elektrik dsbgnya??

KEMENTERIAN Sumber Manusia bercadang menetapkan syarat kepada rakyat tempatan termasuk warga asing yang ingin bekerja dalam bidang kemahiran di negara ini perlu memiliki Sijil Kemahiran Malaysia (SKM) terlebih dahulu.

Timbalan Menterinya, Datuk Mahfuz Omar berkata, cadangan berkenaan dibuat selepas mencapai kata sepakat dalam mesyuarat Pembangunan Kemahiran yang diadakan, baru-baru ini, dan akan dilaksanakan menerusi Rancangan Malaysia Ke-12 (RMK12) sebagai persediaan untuk lima tahun akan datang.

Katanya, warga asing khususnya yang mahu bekerja perlu mempunyai SKM dari negara ini, bukannya menggunakan sijil kemahiran dari negara lain.

“Kita mahu semua industri di negara ini mempunyai persediaan dan persiapan lebih awal bagi melahirkan tenaga kerja mahir.

“Dengan cara ini, barulah anak tempatan mendapat pasaran kerja lebih besar memandangkan majoriti yang memiliki SKM sudah tentunya rakyat Malaysia.

“Saya yakin industri yang ada dalam negara kita memerlukan pekerja yang mahir dan boleh memberikan hasil keluaran terbaik kepada industri di tempat mereka bekerja,” katanya dalam sidang media selepas mengadakan lawatan kerja di Institut Latihan Perindustrian (ILP) Kota Bharu, hari ini.


Rasanya tak lama lagi pelajar kemahiran tempatan akan ada rakan sekelas dari Bangladesh, Pakistan, India, Indonesia dll

Tunggu apa lagi, dapatkan Sijil Kemahiran Malaysia anda SEKARANG
