Cari formula supaya pekerja tidak ‘lari’ selepas ikuti latihan kemahiran – Kula Segaran

Cari formula supaya pekerja tidak 'lari' selepas ikuti latihan kemahiran - Kula Segaran
Kula Segaran mempengerusikan Mesyuarat Majlis Penasihat Buruh Kebangsaan, di Putrajaya, pada Isnin. Astro AWANI

Majikan disaran mewujudkan perjanjian bagi memastikan pekerja tidak meninggalkan syarikat selepas menjalani latihan bagi meningkatkan kemahiran diri.

Menteri Sumber Manusia M Kula Segaran berkata perlu ada formula bagi ‘mengikat’ pekerja untuk jangka masa tertentu supaya prestasi sesebuah syarikat tidak terjejas selepas menghantar pekerja mengikuti latihan kemahiran.

“Setengah majikan beritahu saya, mereka tidak mahu menghantar pekerja mendapatkan latihan kerana apabila mereka pulang, gaji perlu dinaikkan dan ada juga yang akan berhenti kerja selepas dihantar menjalani latihan kemahiran industri.

“Saya beri cadangan supaya majikan perlu menandatangani perjanjian dengan pekerja. Jika pekerja dihantar menjalani latihan, mereka perlu datang semula kepada syarikat untuk berkhidmat, umpama ‘mengikat’ pekerja selepas diberi latihan.

“Amat menyedihkan buat majikan jika pekerja meninggalkan syarikat selepas dihantar mendapatkan latihan, kerana ia akan menjejaskan perniagaan dan sebagainya,” katanya pada sidang media selepas mempengerusikan Mesyuarat Majlis Penasihat Buruh Kebangsaan, di sini, hari ini.

Menurutnya, formula kerajaan yang menaja pelajar mendapat pengajian luar negara boleh digunapakai pihak majikan untuk memastikan pekerja mereka ‘setia’ untuk terus berkhidmat

Dalam pada itu, Kula Segaran turut menekankan mengenai kepentingan memacu dasar Pendidikan dan Latihan Teknikal dan Vokasional (TVET) negara bagi meningkatkan kemahiran (up-skilling dan re-skilling) pelajar serta tenaga kerja sedia ada.

Ia katanya, selaras dengan hasrat kerajaan untuk meningkatkan tenaga mahir kepada 35 peratus menjelang 2020, berbanding hanya pada kadar 28 peratus sekarang.

Dalam perkembangan berkaitan, beliau memaklumkan telah mencadangkan kepada Jabatan Tenaga Manusia (JTM) supaya membuka pusat latihan kemahiran di institusi TVET dari jam 5.30 petang hingga 11 malam, bukan pada waktu kerja biasa dari 8 pagi hingga 5 petang.

“Ini bagi memenuhi keperluan melatih tenaga kerja sedia ada. Dan jika ia berjaya dilaksanakan, ia mampu meningkatkan gaji sedia ada sebanyak 10 hingga 20 peratus,” jelasnya.

Terdahulu, Kula Segaran ditanya berhubung isu gaji minimum, sama ada kerajaan Pakatan Harapan (PH) dapat memberi jaminan ia akan ditingkatkan kepada RM1,500 seperti yang dijanjikan manifesto PH semasa Pilihan Raya Umum Ke-14 (PRU14) lalu.

Mengulas perkara itu, Kula Segaran berkata, isu peningkatan gaji minimum perlu diperhalusi supaya majikan dan pekerja mendapat situasi menang-menang.

Komen: Betul ke formula penajaan pelajar mendapat pengajian luar negara boleh digunapakai pihak majikan untuk mengikat pekerja mereka? Pada pendapat min, pelajar kerja dengan kerajaan sebab anggap ia pekerjaan yang stabil tapi di pihak swasta, pekerja masih cenderung berkhidmat di syarikat lain bila dapat tawaran yang lebih baik setelah mereka dilatih/dipersijilkan.
Min berpendapat formula pakej penggajian yang lebih baik adalah strategi yang paling baik supaya pekerja tak tinggalkan syarikat sedia ada & kerja di syarikat lain setelah mendapat latihan/persijilan baru. Tapi, ini pula menyebabkan majikan berfikir, mengapa pula nak belanja dua kali?
Pertama, kos yuran latihan, kedua, kena tambah gaji pula lepas tu. Sekiranya produktiviti pekerja meningkat jauh melebihi kedua-dua kos ni, berbaloilah tapi min rasa kebiasaannya tidak.
Apa pendapat anda pula?

Attain professional diplomas in business leadership or hospitality leadership at BTVET

Students interested in attaining globally recognised American professional business and hospitality qualifications can now apply for the Professional Diploma in International Business Leadership or Professional Diploma in Hospitality Leadership courses at BERJAYA TVET College (BTVET).

Both these courses address concerns related to leadership, cultural diversity, technology and interpersonal skills, all which are vital skills needed in the global workplace. Those who sign up will have an edge as they will learn to develop skills in leadership and management, attain positive attitudes and work ethics, and grow a sense of responsibility and desire to excel towards becoming effective business communicators with multicultural supervisory capabilities.

On completion of the courses, students will be able to play their roles in the workforce in a professional manner and deliver quality products and/or services, while inspiring and motivating industry peers.

Graduating students can expect to receive a certificate from both AHA and BTVET for each module. They will also be awarded an overall Professional Diploma on completion of all specified modules.

Said BTVET president, Kanendran T. Arulrajah: “AHA’s Professional Diplomas develop industry leaders to lead people to do the right thing, the right and effective way. It also recognises the importance in inspiring and motivating people of various backgrounds to achieve common business and hospitality goals.”

The collaborative effort between BTVET and AHA is said to resonate with a quote from John Quincy Adams – “If your action inspires others to dream more, learn more, do more, and become more, you are a leader.”

Picture for representation only

SHAH ALAM: The Manpower Department aims to produce more skilled workers than its present 28%.

“We need to reach the target of 35% by 2020,“ said its director-general, Datuk Muhd Khair Razman Mohamed Annuar.

He believes they will be able to meet the target through their Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) programmes.

Muhd Khair said, currently they were in smart partnerships with private entities which conducts TVET programmes.

“Presently, there are 565 TVET public institutions under six ministries, while the private entities have over 600 institutions,“ he told theSun today after attending the Monfort Boys Town’s graduation ceremony.

“This is why the partnership with private TVET institutions is important. In order to produce a bigger percentage of skilled workers, it is vital for both private and public TVET institutions to work closely with us.

“Though TVET focuses on the technical, electronic, electrical, civil engineering, ICT, but we will diversify to hospitality courses soon, because it is a platform that nurtures the interest of the youth.

“In the long term, we want graduates to become entrepreneurs, where they can apply for funding from the skilled development corporate fund when they have undergone the programmes and obtained a certificate,“ he said.

He added that even after the graduates are working, they can upgrade their skills through the institutions recognised by the department.

“We have 32 institutions under the Manpower Department – the industrial training institutes, the Japan Technical Institute in Penang, and advanced technologies centres, which besides running full-time courses, also organise short courses to cater for working adults. Our institutions are open to 11pm.”

Muhd Khair said TVET graduates are equally competent as compared with other graduates from various colleges and universities.

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).
