Halatuju Lepasan SPM – Akademik atau TVET?

Tahniah kepada anda jika lulus SPM 2019 dengan cemerlang. Dengan keputusan yang baik, pilihan anda memanglah banyak.
Laluan akademik seperti Matrikulasi, Program Asasi, STAM/STPM dan Diploma Akademik adalah antara pilihan anda.
Namun, laluan TVET/program kemahiran yang menganugerahkan SKM. juga boleh dipertimbangkan.
Ya, jangan ingat program kemahiran cuma untuk mereka yang gagal/tidak cukup kredit untuk SPM.

Sejak keputusan SPM keluar pada 5 Mac 2020, ramai pelajar dan ibu bapa telah mesej, whatsapp atau hubungi min berkenaan kursus yang boleh diambil, terutamanya mereka yang tidak cukup kredit/gagal SPM Sejarah/BM.

Untuk pengetahuan anda, kursus kemahiran rata-ratanya cuma perlukan kemahiran 3M, boleh Membaca, Mengira & Menulis. Ini kerana fokus adalah pada kemahiran tangan/hands-on (70%) berbanding dengan teori (30%).

Dan untuk membantu anda/anak anda memilih kursus kemahiran/TVET, pertama sekali tanya anda/anak anda sendiri apakah minat atau hobinya.
Adalah lebih penting pemilihan kursus berdasarkan minat anda/anak anda, bukannya berdasarkan kursus apa yang paling panas/popular.

Berikut adalah beberapa contoh lazim pemilihan program (pencarian kursus di Pusat Bertauliah JPK adalah mengikut nama/kod program) berdasarkan minat:

Automotif – G452-002-2:2018 atau kod lama TP-300-2/2:2013 Servis Diagnostik – Kenderaan Ringan
Kimpalan – MC-024-2:2012 Proses Kimpalan Arka Kepingan Logam
Masakan/kulinari – HT-012-2:2012 Penyediaan & Pembuatan Makanan
Bakeri – HT-013-2:2011 Pembuatan Roti 
Kecantikan – MP-060-2:2013 Perkhidmatan Estetik
ECE – T982-001-3:2017 atau kod lama
CC-011-3:2012 PENDIDIKAN & PENJAGAAN AWAL KANAK-KANAK
Drone – H512-001-2:2019 (Drone Piloting/Mission Commanding) 

Anda juga boleh muat turun Daftar NOSS untuk mengetahui semua standard pekerjaan yang telah dibangunkan setakat ini (namun, tidak semua program ada penyedia latihannya).

Sekiranya anda tidak tahu di mana nak belajar kursus kemahiran tertentu, boleh isi borang tunjuk minat di sini (Swasta dan BERBAYAR shj).

Jika anda tiada bajet dan cuma mampu belajar di institut kemahiran awam, sila rujuk sini.

Akhir sekali, sekiranya anda dah ada SKM3 dan ke atas (DKM, DLKM) atau pengalaman industri >3 tahun, anda juga berpeluang untuk melanjutkan ke ijazah eksekutif (program URise) dari Universiti Tun Abdul Razak ataupun diploma, ijazah sarjana muda (Bachelors) & ijazah sarjana (Masters) melalui laluan APEL jika dah berumur 20,21 & 30 tahun masing-masing.

Jadi, SPM sudah bukan segala-galanya. Tanpa SPM juga boleh lanjutkan sehingga ke Universiti ya.

Is TVET route better since more and more graduates (academic) are facing unemployment in Malaysia?

Image credit: Unirazak

Referring to the article published by NST on 3/3/2020, our 21 public-sector universities and 38 private-sector universities produce something like 51,000 graduates a year, but nearly 60% remain unemployed one year after graduation, according to a study in 2018 conducted by the Minstry of Education Malaysia’s Graduate Tracer Study.

There are many factors contributing to this, such as mismatch of skills (most academic programs are based on theory only but not practical in the real world), poor language skills (especially English), interpersonal & communication skills etc.

However, those who studies TVET courses may have a better chance of being employed @ high marketability. There’s already pathway for TVET graduates to further study to University level (despite failing/no credit for History or BM for SPM, whether for management related programs like those offered by Unirazak or pure technical degrees leading to Bac of Technology, offered by the 4 public universities collectively known as MTUN.

So, even if you excel academically, academic route may not be the best choice except for certain professional programs like law, medicine, pharmacy etc where academic pathway is the only option.

There are hundreds of TVET/skills programs for you to choose from, you may refer to the National Occupation Skills Standards (NOSS) for a start/guide. However, not all programs are offered by the public & private TVET/skills centres, accredited by Department of Skills Development (DSD)@Jabatan Pembangunan Kemahiran (JPK).

If you need further counselling on what TVET/skills courses to pursue or consultation to set up a TVET/JPK accredited centre (make sure your program is at least 6 months – 1 year and available in the NOSS, feel free to contact us at various channels stated here.

SPM school leavers must know what they want to become one day, what programmes to pursue, and what qualifications are needed to get into the programmes.

WITH Sijil Pelajaran Malaysia (SPM) results expected to be announced next month, school leavers should begin planning their future and start looking at study options.

There is no lack of choice in terms of programmes at public and private higher-learning institutions that cater to hands-on students and the academically-inclined.

Education Ministry Higher Education Department deputy director-general Professor Datuk Dr Mohd Saleh Jaafar said there are many options for SPM school leavers.

“They include certificate courses, foundation studies, matriculation and diploma programmes at private and public universities, colleges, polytechnics, community colleges and skills training institutes.

“Others include degrees offered by the Malaysian Institutes of Teaching Education (IPGM),” he said.

“There is also Form 6, where school leavers can enter university after sitting for Sijil Tinggi Persekolahan Malaysia (STPM).”

He said each option has its own merits.

“School leavers, either with SPM or STPM (or equivalent) qualification, must have in-depth discussion with their parents, family members, their counselling teachers and seniors, perhaps, to gain information and gauge which option is best.

“They must take into account their own interest and what the future holds,” he said.

Chen Ai Koon, a counselor at SMK Seri Serdang in Seri Kembangan, Selangor, said there are basically two pathways after SPM.

The first is the pursuit of professional careers like medicine, accounting, engineering and architecture. Second is for those who are keen on skills-based jobs.

The first pathway, she said, provides a faster route to getting a degree, which involves taking up pre-university programmes like matriculation, foundation studies or Form 6. The second is the technical and vocational education and training (TVET) pathway, which involves taking up certificate and diploma courses.

“This is the time for school leavers to grab the opportunities. Choose what is best for you”. – Professor Datuk Dr Mohd Saleh Jaafar

“The main aim of a diploma programme is to produce a semi-professional workforce.

“A diploma gives an opportunity for SPM school leavers who did not qualify for pre-university studies to be trained for the working world.

“However, if the diploma student can prove that he or she is able to excel in studies, he or she will have the opportunity to continue to a bachelor’s degree. It is important to note that this is not an automatic process.”

To decide on the pathway, Chen said SPM school leavers must know what they want to become one day, what programmes to pursue, and what qualifications are needed to get into the programmes.

Saleh said when choosing between a public and private university, both have their own strengths and specialties.

“The quality of universities can be seen in the QS World University Rankings and local MyQuest Rating.

“Students should choose their programmes wisely by looking into the prospective university’s QS World ranking and MyQuest Rating scores. The quality of programmes should be a key factor.

“In addition, students should consider their financial ability to ensure that they are not burdened with problems during studies and after graduation.”

Saleh said tuition fees at public universities are subsidised by the government to help students obtain high-quality education at a low cost.

There are also sponsorships provided by government agencies, such as the Public Service Department and Education Ministry scholarship department.

“Besides those, private entities like Yayasan Tenaga National, Petronas, Telekom Malaysia and Bank Negara Malaysia also offer their own scholarships.

“This initiative will help poor, deserving students obtain a higher education,” he said.

On the prospects of SPM school leavers enrolling directly in higher education institutions, Saleh said looking at the past three years’ trend, there is a better success rate.

“A total of 50.1 per cent of eligible SPM candidates were offered a seat in the 2017/2018 academic session. This percentage increased to 86.5 in the 2018/2019 academic session.

“However, for the 2019/2020 academic session, only 69.09 per cent were offered places in certificate, foundation and diploma programmes at public universities, polytechnics, community colleges and skills training institutes,” he said.

This year, with the implementation of the “Single-window, single-offer” concept — where matriculation and places for the Bachelor of Education (PISMP) at IPGM will also be offered via UPUOnline — the university enrollment of SPM school leavers is expected to increase.

“For 2020, I am expecting to see higher demand for TVET programmes since the government is focusing on initiatives that produce highly-skilled workers to cater to the Fourth Industrial Revolution.

“This is the time for school leavers to grab the opportunities. Choose what is best for you,” he said.

To assist students in making their choices, Higher ED will be running an in-depth series on choices after SPM over the coming weeks. Don’t miss it!

Comment:
Based on mid-term review of 11th Malaysia Plan, Graduate employability rate for higher education has improved steadily over the years from 76.1% in 2015 to 79.1% in 2017. Nevertheless, feedback from industry highlighted that graduates lacked problem solving and communication skills. Moreover, the percentage of graduates employed in the semi-skilled job category increased from 28.2% in 2015 to 35.2% in 2017 implying a mismatch and underemployment.

That could mean that there’s more demand for TVET graduates going forward and if you/your child is non-academically inclined, do not force yourself/them to go towards higher education which are of academic oriented. Instead, consider polytechnics, community colleges, public and private skill training institutes.

And later on, they can always pursue further diploma or degree after working.
And if you’re in private sector, there’s now a faster & easier way to pursue a (professional) diploma or (executive) degree if you are a TVET graduate with SKM/SVM/DKM/DVM qualification, even without SPM!

Register your interest for a professional diploma or executive degree from a private local university if you only have SKM/SVM/DKM/DVM qualifications. Even if no formal qualifications but has >3 years of industrial experience, you are encouraged to apply.

MOE’s year of strides

Education Minister Dr Maszlee Malik. NSTP/ROSELA ISMAILBy Rozana SaniRayyan Rafidi – December 26, 2019 @ 11:55am

WITH the year fast drawing to a close, Higher ED looks back at the highlights and events that have shaped and influenced the tertiary education space.

This year, Malaysia took great strides to provide inclusivity and quality education to various levels of the society.

Increased pathways were created for access into education at various higher education institutions (HEIs). There was a keen focus on making tertiary education provide graduates with relevant skills and knowledge that would fit both industry demands and society needs as well as push further the pursuit of knowledge.

These were all drawn up via a clear framework stipulated in the Education Minister’s 2019 Mandate that was unveiled in January where four key directions were cited for higher education ― quality, autonomy, collaboration and internationalisation ― that aimed to bring back credibility to universities.

To achieve quality higher education, research from universities should be aimed at solving society’s problems.NSTP/SHARUL HAFIZ ZAM

Education Minister Dr Maszlee Malik advocated increasing the visibility of academics’ works and nurturing a discourse culture in universities to solve society’s problems and develop the nation as a means to achieve quality higher education.

Ethics and integrity were given emphasis where university publication should reflect the mastery of academicians and be regarded as universal references.

The quality of research grants should be increased to ensure knowledge transfer and translation of great works.

Maszlee announced that student empowerment woud be emphasised through efforts like the abolition of Section 15(1)(c) of the Universities and University Colleges Act 1971.

Students’ Unions would be established to increase students’ decision-making roles. International Islamic University Malaysia was selected as the first university to be the pioneer.

In preparing students to become society’s troubleshooters, *universities must create collaborations with various parties, such as schools, polytechnics and vocational colleges.

To help local communities, public universities could provide training to improve the quality of the teaching and learning process in schools.

To make Malaysia an international education hub, Maszlee said there must be an increase in international students and local universities must establish more campuses abroad through the satellite university method.

For Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET), the ministry would continue to improve its institutional capabilities to be on par with other educational pathways.

A harmonised accreditation system with quality assurance would be established to enable student mobility in TVET institutions.

The quality and delivery of TVET programmes would be increased to improve the skills of graduates through an industry-led approach, removing duplication of programmes and resources, increasing cost effectiveness and expanding TVET funding.

Disabled students are among the priority groups given special routes for entry into public universities.. NSTP/AZHAR RAMLI

HAPPENINGS in the tertiary education gradually ramped up from early March prior to the release of SPM and STPM results.

Plans on access, wider pathways for furthering education, autonomy and quality education were generally made good on as the year progressed.

SPECIAL ROUTES

The Education Ministry announced special pathways to public universities for four groups, namely, people with disabilities, athletes, Orang Asli and those in the B40 group in early March.

Students from these priority groups do not have to compete with the mainstream group to pursue their tertiary studies.

In line with the ministry’s Education for All concept, this initiative follows in the footsteps of developed countries in prioritising the admission of athletes into varsities.

Some 51,191 students from B40 group benefited from the special routes to public universities and special training institutes, of which 32,282 made it into public universities.

STUDENT-RUN ELECTION

Also in March, Universiti Malaya made history when its campus election became the first in 50 years to be independently run by students.

It is a testament to students’ capability to uphold democracy and be responsible citizens.

The electoral process was organised by the Campus Election Committee 2019 comprising 19 student leaders who were given the mandate by UM’s vice-chancellor last year with full autonomy.

Improvisations were carried out to benefit students such as coalitions were allowed to be formed and contest under one logo.

The election was conducted in the second semester to familiarise new students with the university environment and their student leaders.

Campus elections at all public universities this year were independently run by students.NSTP/AZIAH AZMEE

PROGRESS ON UEC

Decision on whether to recognise the Unified Examination Certificate (UEC) continues to be a hot issue.

On April 3, Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad said that only the government could make the decision to recognise the UEC.

The UEC is the unified examination for Independent Chinese Secondary Schools which does not follow the national education system.

The Unified Examination Certificate Task Force, an independent three-man panel appointed by Education Ministry in 2018, updated the NST that it was actively gathering views on this matter from various stakeholders, individuals and entities including associations, political parties, scholars and parents.

As of last month, the task force was reported to be in the midst of finalising the report.

MORE SEATS FOR MATRICULATION

In April, the Education Ministry announced that it was increasing the student intake into the matriculation programme to 40,000 from the present 25,000.

While the quota system, which allocates 90 per cent of seats to Bumiputeras continue to be in place, seats for non-Bumiputeras increased proportionally to 4,000.

Education Minister Dr Maszlee Malik said the system is in line with the matriculation programme’s vision to encourage more Bumiputera’s involvement in the sciences.

HEIGHTENED FOCUS ON TVET

To formulate more relevant policies to implement the TVET agenda according to industry needs, the TVET Empowerment Committee named Maszlee chairperson in May.

Later in August, the committee (JKKPTVET) was formed in line with the government’s hopes to make TVET a mainstream choice, instead of an alternative. The move is expected to help create a skilled workforce by 2030.

GOING UP THE RANKINGS

Twenty Malaysian universities were featured in the QS World University Rankings 2020 released in June.

Produced by global higher education consultancy Quacquarelli Symonds, the list ranks the world’s top 1000 universities.

In its second consecutive year in the top 100, Universiti Malaya made Malaysia proud by climbing up to the 70th position from 87th globally.

In the 200 rank are Universiti Putra Malaysia ― from 202 to 159; Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia ― 184 to 160; and Universiti Sains Malaysia ― from 207 to 165.

Universiti Teknologi Malaysia climbed from 228 to 217.

UCSI University went from 481 to 442, the highest for a private university in the country.

According to Quacquarelli Symonds, Malaysia’s progressive performance was due to improving results in two key surveys ― Academic Reputation and Employer Reputation.

However, Malaysian universities’ research impact has room for improvement. Only five of Malaysia’s 20 entrants improved their performance in Quacquarelli Symonds’ Citations per Faculty indicator.

UNIVERSITY AUTONOMY

The Education Ministry announced that a new Act would be created to abolish and replace several higher education-related Acts, including the Universities and University Colleges (AUKU) Act 1971 and Private Higher Educational Institutions Act 1996 (Act 555).

According to the ministry, the move was aimed at having a more efficient and sustainable governance and financing structure in efforts to support universities’ academic freedom and autonomy.

Chaired by Maszlee, a meeting was held on June 22 to discuss the policy framework and findings of studies by independent academic researchers.

The abolition of the Acts was in line with the government’s promise to bring back credibility to local universities.

ALTERNATIVE POSTGRAD PATHWAYS

In July, the Malaysian Qualifications Agency revealed that there would soon be alternative pathways to provide opportunities for working adults and undergraduates to have a PhD qualification.

MQA chief executive officer Datuk Dr Rahmah Mohamed said the agency was carrying out an implementation study of the next phase of the Accreditation of Prior Experiential Learning (APEL) programme where work experience could be translated into a masters or doctoral degree, or speed up the process of getting a PhD.

Defined as a systematic process involving identification, documentation and assessment of prior experiential learning, the programme thus far has created access to certificate, diploma, bachelor’s degree and master’s degree study programmes to individuals with working experience but lack or are without proper academic qualifications.

MQA targeted to introduce APEL T-8 and APEL Q next year that would give access to PhD level qualifications. APEL T-8 is an extension of APEL A, which provides higher education opportunities based on a person’s working experience.

APEL Q awards master’s and doctoral level academic qualifications without class attendance.

The purpose of the various initiatives is to ensure there is a growth in the number of postgraduate degree holders, in line with the country’s aspiration of becoming a high-income nation.

REASSESSING COURSES

In September, the Higher Education department shared that it had instructed all universities to identify and reshape their academic programmes to enhance students’ job opportunities and be in line with industry needs.

This led to a confusion among students currently pursuing certain courses and their parents were particularly anxious about the status of the said programmes that would no longer be offered by public universities in the country.

The then Higher Education department director general Datuk Dr Siti Hamisah Tapsir highlighted that the idea behind the move was essentially to revise strategically and systematically courses currently offered at universities to keep abreast of change and market developments or risk stagnation.

International Islamic University Malaysia was selected as the first university to establish a Students’ Union to increase students’ decision-making role.NSTP/SALHANI IBRAHIM

BUDGET 2020

To level up human capital in the country, Finance Minister Lim Guan Eng, when tabling Budget 2020 in Parliament in October, announced an allocation of RM64.1 billion in 2020 for education ― reflecting the government’s commitment to provide quality education at different stages of life for the rakyat.

From the sum, a whopping RM5.9 billion is dedicated to mainstreaming TVET which include, among others, funding to strengthen the synergies between the public and private sectors through increased allocation for State Skills Development Centres and Public Skills Training Institutions as well as expanding pathways for TVET graduates to pursue further studies and secure jobs.

To encourage adult learning, Lim said the Employees Provident Fund will be allowed to facilitate the withdrawal for qualifications attained at certificate level, especially for accredited programmes that are in line with the nation’s IR4.0 aspirations.

The withdrawal scheme will include members’ parents and spouse.

A RM20 million allocation will be made available to be matched by another RM20 million from the Human Resource Development Fund towards having working adults take up professional certification examinations in fields relating to IR4.0.

Emphasis on learning opportunities under MARA and Yayasan Peneraju Pendidikan Bumiputera for low-income and rural bumiputeras through education institutions such as Kolej GIATMARA and Universiti Kuala Lumpur will be continued with an allocation of RM1.3 billion for education institutions under MARA for 2020, with a further RM2 billion allocated for student loans, benefiting 50,000 students. In addition, RM192 million is also allocated for professional certification programmes under Yayasan Peneraju.

To drive economic growth in the digital era, the government encourages the provision of technology scholarships, training and upskilling for digital skills for communities in need through the concept of Digital Social Responsibility (DSR).

DSR is the commitment by businesses to contribute to digital economic development while improving the digital skills of the future workforce.

Enhancing the research and development framework was also cited as a key strategy to drive economic growth in the new economy.

For that, Lim announced that the government will allocate RM30 million for R&D matching grants for collaborations with industry and academia to develop higher value-added downstream use of palm oil, specifically tocotrienol in pharmaceuticals and bio-jet fuel.

“To promote commercialisation of R&D from the public sector, research universities, beginning with UM, will establish a one-stop Innovation Office to transform intellectual property into commercially exploitable opportunities,” said Lim.

STUDY PATHWAYS

In November, the Education Ministry announced the replacement of the science/arts streaming system in upper secondary into a system where students can choose from 89 elective subjects grouped in two packages: STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths), and Arts and Humanities under the new Secondary Schools’ Standard Curriculum (Upper Secondary) or KSSM Menengah Atas.

This will give students a taste of what they might pursue at tertiary education level and maybe even get a headstart in their desired future careers.

In a briefing, Education Ministry deputy director-general (policies and development) Dr Habibah Abdul Rahim advised students to pick their subjects wisely because it paves the way for their future.

She added that the students can change subjects midway through schooling but noted that it will not be an easy feat because there will be a lot of catching up to do.

Pelbagai persoalan mengenai Kolej Vokasional (KV) terjawab

Untuk masuk KV, pastikan pelajar tu BETUL2 minat dan betul2 rajin. Bukan ikut kawan.

Di KV, ramai pelajar yg kecundang tengah jalan sebab tak minat dan tak rajin. Sebab:

1. Bila tak minat, jadi malas.
2. Bila malas, kerja x siap dan bertangguh, serta tak boleh nak catch up.
3. Bila kerja x siap, markah PB (Pentaksiran Berterusan, 70% utk matapelajaran vokasional, 30% utk matapelajaran akademik) rendah. Bila tak mencapai tahap minimum, gagal PB. Gagal PB, sia2 je dtg exam akhir, sebab pointer akan gagal jugak.

Pelajar KV bukan automatik dapat diploma. Diorg kena lalui 2 tahun sebagai pelajar SVM (pradiploma atau pelajar sijil), bila lulus dengan minimum 3 kredit (2 kredit Vokasional, 1 kredit lg lulus BM setara SPM), baru ditawarkan ke peringkat DVM (Diploma).

Itu pun, bergantung pada prasyarat program. Ada program yg pelajar wajib lulus Matematik, ada yg wajib lulus BI, baru ditawarkan ke DVM. Da diorg wajib lulus satu kursus khas bernama Core Abilities (CA).

Bermakna utk layak ke DVM, wajib:
Lulus matapelajaran vokasional minimum 2 sem (1 sem = 1 kredit)
Lulus BM setara SPM
Lulus CA
Pointer minimum 2.67 Vokasional n 2.00 akademik.

Utk yg nak tau ttg sistem pembelajaran di KV, ok begini.

Pelajar sijil wajib menghadiri sesi PDPC dari jam 8-5 (rehat jam 1), manakala pelajar diploma, jadualnya agak relax kebanyakannya paling lewat akan habis kelas jam 4. Tp ni pun bergantung pada program. Sb setiap program, tak sama jam kredit. Pelajar masih ambil matapelajaran akademik:

Untuk SVM:
BM (setara SPM)
Sejarah (setara SPM)
BI
Maths (Teknologi atau Sosial, bergantung pada program)
Sains (Teknologi atau Sosial, bergantung pada program)
Agama/Moral
PJ
Core Abilities (mcm pelajar SKM di ILP)

Untuk DVM:
Pengajian Am
Bahasa Komunikasi (Arab/Mandarin)
Matematik (bergantung pada program)
Sains (bergantung pada program)
BI
Dan beberapa matapelajaran lg bergantung pada program yg diambil.

Tapi kena tahu juga, yg SEMUA pelajar DIWAJIBKAN untuk terlibat dlm SEMUA aktiviti kolej, tanpa mengira SVM atau DVM. Yuran PIBG, dan asrama pun tiada perbezaan utk pelajar SVM atau DVM.

Kurikulum di KV tak sama dengan SMK. Kami tak guna buku teks sekolah, melainkan BM n Sejarah. Contohnya Akaun, pelajar bukan diajar prisip, tp pelajar terus didedahkan dgn cara utk buat kitaran perakaunan terus. Daripada proses kutip dokumen (pelajar akan pegang dokumen), pemfailan, hinggalah tutup akaun. Dan di peringkat diploma, pelajar akan belajar cara mengaudit akaun yg diorg dh buat tu.

Pelajar KV jugak kena sangat2 rajin. Sebab mcm sy sebut kat atas, diorg ada PB. PB ni diuji dlm kelas, amali n teori. Soalan2 yg digubal dipantau oleh pegawai dari Lembaga Peperiksaan sendiri dari semasa ke semasa. Jd tiada alasan kata KV tak diiktiraf. Pelajar yg kerap tak hadir, akan ketinggalan banyak benda, terutamanya ujian PB. Bila tertinggal, maka gagallah dia.

DVM pulak, syarat2 mcm dekat UA applied di sini. Cthnya kehadiran minimum 80%. Lulus LI. Dan sebagainya.

Selain dari tu, kena tau juga, walaupun pelajar KV dah boleh masuk IPTA, tp sasaran KV adalah utk menghasilkan 70% graduan BEKERJA, bukan utk sambung degree terus. Kalau nak sambung study, kami akan sarankan pelajar utk sambung SKM 4 n 5 berbanding degree, sebab degree lebih kepada teori, berbanding SKM, kurikulumnya lebih sepadan dengan pelajar KV.

Pelajar KV TIADA SPM. Tapi mereka WAJIB ambil BM dan Sejarah Setara SPM yg mana, dua subjek ni boleh digunapakai utk pelajar KV memohon utk bekerja dlm sektor awam menggantikan SPM (ada pekelilingnya). Yg ni, pelajar KV ramai ambil mudah. Sangat ramai pelajar KV gagal dlm dua matapelajaran ni, secara tak langsung, menggagalkan mereka dari sambung ke peringkat DVM jugak.

Tp untuk makluman jugak, SEMUA soalan Penilaian Akhir (final exam) yg diadakan pada setiap hujung semester, adalah dikelola oleh Lembaga Peperiksaan sendiri. Penggubal soalan dan Pemeriksa adalah yg pegawai dilantik oleh LP. Bukan cikgu sendiri yg buat soalan. Even result pelajar pun dikeluarkan oleh LP. Bukan bawah kolej. Yg menentukan pelajar lulus atau gagal, layak ke peringkat DVM pun, LP. Kolej tiada kuasa dlm bab ni.

Ada yg bertanya, lepas SVM boleh sambung diploma kat UA ke? Tak boleh. Tp diorg boleh sambung ke peringkat DVM di mana2 KV lain yg menyediakan program yg sama. Ataupun sambung diploma profesional & bachelor eksekutif di Unirazak, KL (IPTS), di mana ada laluan khas direka untuk graduan SVM/SKM/TVET

(Please refer to latest update by KPM. According to some KV teachers, students now can continue their studies in IPTA).

Komen: Berita baik buat semua lepasan Diploma Kemahiran Malaysia (DKM), Diploma Lanjutan Kemahiran Malaysia (DLKM) atau Diploma Vokasional Malaysia (DVM) yang diiktiraf setara dengannya oleh Kerajaan Malaysia.

Sepintas lihat, nampak seperti semua pemegang DKM, DLKM dan DVM tanpa SPM pun dah boleh masuk UA untuk sambung program Ijazah Sarjana Muda. Namun, lebih baik anda semak dengan setiap UA berkenaan kerana ia memerlukan kelulusan Senat Universiti.

Semua Universiti dan Kolej Universiti tertakluk di bawah Akta Universiti & Kolej Universiti (AUKU).

Semak Bahagian IV, Seksyen 25, Seksyen 26 dan Seksyen 27.

Kalau nak ubah, kena ubah atau buat pindaan Akta Universiti tu baru boleh digunapakai secara keseluruhannya.

Jika betul anda bersijilkan DKM/DLKM/DVM dan masih tak diterima UA sebab tiada SPM dan masih ingin mendapatkan ijazah (bidang pengurusan industri) dari IPTS (Universiti Swasta di KL), sila isi borang tunjuk minat ini.

Unirazak prepares students for 4IR

Universiti Tun Abdul Razak Chancellor Tun Ahmad Sarji Abdul Hamid presenting the Chancellor’s Award to Nur Syakirah Mawardi at the university’s 19th convocation in Kuala Lumpur on 30th Nov 2019.

KUALA LUMPUR: Universiti Tun Abdul Razak (Unirazak) is looking to offer new programmes to cater for the needs of the Industrial Revolution 4.0 (4IR).

Vice-Chancellor Professor Datin Dr Samsinar Md Sidin said it would introduce the new programmes to ensure that students were prepared for the industry’s demands.

She hoped that Unirazak would be the first private university to cater for the 4IR.

“We will offer programmes that prepare our graduates to be a future-ready generation, hence we are looking not just within Malaysia but also to what is happening around the world.

“It is not just about programmes, but also the teaching and learning techniques, as well as skills.

“In order to achieve that, we have to be dynamic in terms of how we do things and I hope Unirazak would be able to do that for their students, as well as for the nation,” she said at the university’s 19th convocation here.

A total of 215 graduates from faculties of Bank Rakyat School of Business and Entrepreneurship, Tun Abdul Razak School of Government and Graduate School of Business received their graduation scrolls.

The ceremony was officiated by Chancellor Tun Ahmad Sarji Abdul Hamid, who presented the scrolls to the graduates.

When asked if the university was prepared to embrace the Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics programme, Samsinar said Unirazak was working closely with industries to obtain new content to include in its curriculum.

“We want these industry experts to come and teach our students as they are willing to learn beyond their programmes.”

Ahmad Sarji, in his speech, said the Fourth Industrial Revolution had been changing the world. He said Artificial intelligence, robotics, Big Data and the Internet of Things would collectively impact jobs and industries in the future.

“Unirazak has developed an Education 4.0 experience for students through the Unirazak Online Experience, better known as UROX, that rides on the Canvas System.

“This was introduced this year to all students and faculty members with the objective to expand teaching and learning at the university,” he said.

Comment: Do you know that Unirazak would soon have an URise program offering Professional Diploma in Industrial Management (ProDip) & Executive Bachelor in Industrial Management (EBIM) that’s been created specially for TVET graduates?
It aims to:
1) Bridge TVET graduates to an MQA accredited Bachelor’s Degree or Masters Degree
2) Advance TVET graduates in their career with a Bachelor’s Degree, where most do not have a chance if they don’t have SPM with 3 credits, MQA Diploma or Diploma Kemahiran Malaysia (DKM).
3) Elevate TVET graduates’ social status.
