Minimum wage based on sector for implementation in two years: Kula Segaran

IPOH: The implementation of the minimum wage according to sectors will only be implemented at the earliest, in two years, said Human Resources Minister M. Kula Segaran.

He said according to the National Wages Consultative Council Act (NWCC) 2011, a review of the minimum wage should be carried out every two years.

“Many people are unaware that that matters on wages are determined by a committee (National Wage Legislative Technical Committee), the minister has no power.

“Before the implementation of the minimum wage of RM1,100, discussions were held to cover all aspects, but according to the NWCC Act 2011, the matter will be reviewed and it is for later, not for now,“ he added.

He was speaking to reporters after the Meet & Greet Session at the Satria 4.0 & TVET (Technical Vocational Education and Training) Seminar 2019 at the Ipoh Industrial Training Institute in Meru.

Last Monday, media reports had said that the government would review the minimum wage rates according to job sectors.

Meanwhile, in his speech at the event, Kula, who is MP for Ipoh Barat, told the trainees that those who possessed TVET qualifications had bright career prospects, including in the film industry.

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

RM2mil allocation for UCSF for skills training

KOTA KINABALU: University College Yayasan Sabah (UCSF) received a RM2 million allocation from the Implementation Coordination Unit (ICU) of the Prime Minister’s Department for its skills training programmes in the State. ICU Director-General Datuk Zolkopli Dahalan said the allocation was included in the 11th Malaysia Plan (RMK11) and his department fully supported UCSF’s efforts to attract the younger generation, especially those side-lined by mainstream education, to receive skills training which would enable them to earn a living and contribute to the economic development of the State and country.“If the programme shows a good outcome, then it may be continued in the next Malaysia Plan. This kind of training is good and I can see some of the work of trainees have already achieved international standards, so this work is something to be proud of and should be continued.” He said this to reporters after officiating the closing ceremony of the Borneo Art Newcomers (Banco) 2019, here, Thursday.

Asked whether similar programmes can be set up in other parts of the country, Zolkopli agreed and said he also welcomed other states to implement similar training programmes for school students not able to pursue their education to a higher level.“Of course, there are also side-lined youths in other states. But it is up to those respective states to take the effort to provide the opportunity for similar skills training for their youths so they can also improve their standard of living,” he said. 

A total of 70 trainees under the Sabah Native Special Programme 2018, who completed their visual arts, visual art sculptures and botanical batik creative arts short-term courses, also received their course certificate. UCSF Vice-Chancellor Dr Mohamed Haleem Mohamed Razi, in his speech, said UCSF hoped the course can be continued and expanded to reach out to more youths in the State where he said such training will assist and expand the talents and skills of youth trainees in line with the Government’s efforts to develop the State.

Comment: Every now and then, we see news of funds going to public TVET colleges or in this case, University College. What about the private sector? How much is the allocation from PTPK??
Is it enough for the private TVET colleges & institutes?

We will all know by end of the month but I highly suspect, it’s not gonna be enough, many of them either got to downsize, cease operation or if they want to survive, got to think creatively how to pull through this tough period.

Funding essential for B40 group to benefit from TVET training

Bernama pic)

There has been a lot of talk of the new Malaysian Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) Roadmap.

However, there are plenty of unanswered questions in relation to the direction of TVET, although these programmes benefit the B40 the most.

Firstly, there is no single body in charge and TVET courses are provided by a couple of ministries.

This has resulted in different standards set by each of these ministries, although the human resources minister is supposed to head this.

Secondly, what skills are expected of a TVET graduate? Currently, students enrolled in the Sijil Kemahiran Malaysia (SKM) programme largely comprise of very low achievers at school. Some are hardly able to read and write.

With the development of technology and the coming of Industry 4.0, the industry expects graduates with innovative and higher-order thinking skills.

But school-leavers with these skills do not consider TVET as a study option and go on to take up degree courses.

These conflicting issues need to be addressed before students are counselled to take up TVET courses, so they are clear on their expectations.

Next, it is getting very difficult to promote TVET courses to school-leavers because they perceive TVET courses lead to low-level and lowly-paid jobs — those equated with cheap foreign labour.

The government needs to address this perception. Teachers also need to be educated on these possible high-paying jobs.

Having addressed the above, the next biggest issue is the demand for skilled workers. We understand that there are more than two million foreign workers who are either semi-skilled or unskilled working in this country.

So, what is the policy on the dependence on foreign workers and the subsequent replacement with a more locally-skilled workforce?

Assuming these two million foreign labourers are to be replaced with local TVET graduates over the next 10 years, wouldn’t that mean about 200,000 TVET students have to be trained annually? How are we going to do this?

Currently, skills training is provided by both the public and private institutions. It is very important that the government makes clear the role of the private sector in meeting the demand for training.

The survival, sustainability and investments by private skills training institutions greatly depends on a clear policy by the government.

Due to neglected funding, quite a number of private training institutions have ceased operations. Surely the human resources minister must realise that without proper funding, it is virtually impossible for the B40 lower-income populace to afford education.

The private training institutions have the capacity to meet the training needs of half the above demand. But the question is the funding.

It is a known fact that the majority of students who enrol in these skills programmes belong to the B40 group and would be heavily dependent on the funding.

The government needs to allocate the required funds or loans to cater for the underprivileged.

In conclusion, the TVET curriculum needs to be relooked to meet emerging technological changes.

Developing local human capital should take precedence in meeting the industry demands rather than being overly dependent on foreign labour.

To make this happen, the quota system of funding must cease, thus enabling all qualified students to pursue skills courses. This should be taken as a national agenda.

If this is not addressed, we will have to face the consequences of national socio-economic problems, thus affecting the future growth of the country.

Comment: Yes, I agree that the private institutions be given more, if not equal funding vs government institutions. However, things are not moving that way, thus far.
Perhaps, it’s also time that private institutions be more creative in packaging their education but must be careful in not going against the Act 652 (National Skills Development Act).


I’ve seen how some of these private institutions done in a way that benefit the students, industry & themselves!
So, students, if you have problem getting into public institutions or having financial constraints with your fees but yet interested with skills courses, fill up the form here.

Kursus Induksi PP-PPD, PP-PPT, PPL – Semua penganjur sama?

Ya, anda mungkin keliru dengan mana satu nak pilih, terutamanya untuk induksi PP-PPD-PPB, di mana banyak sangat pilihan/penganjur.


Walaupun sijil yang dianugerahkan adalah sama, oleh JPK, ada beberapa perkara yang anda mungkin ingin ambil kira penganjur mana anda patut pilih.

1. Rekod penganjuran penganjur
Ini adalah AMAT penting kerana ada sesetengah penganjur yang KERAP TUNDA sesi mereka. Mengapa? Sebab ia mungkin bukan fokus utama perniagaan mereka. Lebih teruk lagi, ada penganjur yang TIDAK MEMULANGKAN WANG anda walaupun mereka tunda/batal dan anda sudah tidak berminat lagi untuk ambil dengan mereka.
Kesan yang paling teruk adalah masa ataupun tiket kapal terbang (dari Sabah/Sarawak ke Semenanjung) anda mungkin terbazir.

2. Kekerapan penganjuran
Ini juga penting sebab jika penganjur cuma anjur sekali sekala (setahun sekali dua) dan anda tak dapat hadir last minute tapi telah bayar, wang anda mungkin TIDAK DIPULANGKAN tapi disuruh MENUNGGU sesi seterusnya.

3. Perkhidmatan khidmat tambah (Value Add)
Selain kursus induksi PP-PPD/PP-PPT/PPL, lebih baik jika penganjur juga menawarkan khidmat lain yang ada kaitan dengan pentauliahn personel seperti kursus VTO & SKM secara PPT. Dengan itu, anda tak perlu nak runsing mana nak pergi selepas ikuti kursus induksi PP-PPD.

4. Pengetahuan & pengalaman penganjur
Penganjur yang baru ataupun jarang anjur biasanya tak berapa fasih dengan sistem persijilan kemahiran Malaysia.
Mereka mungkin tidak dapat jawab banyak persoalan anda kerana tak cukup pengalaman tapi lebih bahaya lagi, ada yang bagi AJARAN SESAT!
Mudah je, kalau anda nak servis kereta ke baiki kereta, anda lebih selesa hantar ke mekanik bawah pokok ke PAKAR/SIFU yang berpengalaman?
Jadi, pilihlah dengan bijak 🙂

5. Testimoni pelanggan
Kalau penganjur bagus, pelanggan akan bagi testimoni, bukan satu, dua atau tiga tapi ramai. Mungkin ia boleh direka-reka tapi kalau penganjur dapat anjur beratus sesi atau bertahan belasan tahun, pastinya bukan penganjur yang kualitinya boleh dipertikaikan.

Malaysia to host first WorldChef Battlefield competition

It will be another first for Malaysia this April when it hosts the inaugural international culinary championship known as WorldChef Battlefield – Battle of the Masters (WCB 2019). The culinary championship is the first of its kind not just in Malaysia but the whole of Asia and will take place from April 4 to 7.

“This championship brings a new perspective to the Masterchef culinary reality TV show which relies on amateur chefs as participants and Iron Chef where experienced guest chefs challenge the show’s resident ‘iron chef’ in a timed cooking battle built around a specific themed ingredient,” Zubir said.

“In WCB 2019, which is jointly organised by DRS Proevent and CZ Restaurant Group, culinary competitions are taken into an arena that reflects real life situations through a series of culinary battles among professional chefs from around the world,” he added.

Oil and gas sector hires more local graduates, trims forex losses

Analysts said companies such as Petroliam Nasional Bhd (Petronas), Sapura Energy Bhd, Alam Maritim Bhd, Barakah Offshore Bhd and others has hired local professionals and technical and vocational education and training (TVET) graduates to reduce costs, which is part of the companies’ cost cutting measures.

KUALA LUMPUR: Skilled local workforce has helped major oil and gas (O&G) cushion the global weak oil prices, ringgit fluctuations and foreign exchange (forex losses) over the past few years.

Analysts said companies such as Petroliam Nasional Bhd (Petronas), Sapura Energy Bhd, Alam Maritim Bhd, Barakah Offshore Bhd and others has hired local professionals and technical and vocational education and training (TVET) graduates to reduce costs, which is part of the companies’ cost cutting measures.

Sunway University Business School Professor of Economics Dr Yeah Kim Leng said the O&G sector is a very specialised high technology sector which requires a lot of specialised skills to work at oil rigs and fabrication yards.

“In the early days, these niche areas required foreign expertise and was dominated by expatriates but now firms such as Petronas and Sapura no longer hire foreign professionals but source local engineers from the O&G field.

“This in turn has enabled the country to save a lot in terms of foreign exchange as it is very expensive to pay the foreign engineers.

“Now Malaysia is able to produce its own local oil and gas engineers, technicians and supervisors,” Yeah told NST Business recently.

Yeah added the sector is also a hotbed for hundreds of TVET graduates every year to fill in various positions across the entire oil and gas supply chain both in Malaysia and abroad.

“Petronas and other companies for example are growing globally and they are helping the country’s workforce by employing some of these TVET graduates to work on oil rigs and at fabrication yards,” he said.

Meanwhile, an O&G engineer at Jurunature Sdn Bhd said the sector is growing robustly all over the world and it will require TVET graduates fill up the various portfolios available all over the world.

“Petronas for example is a Forbes 100 company with oil and gas exploration activities all over the world and it will farm out all the contracts to O&G firms such as Jurunature, Barakah Offshore, Sapura and foreign players as well.

He added many O&G firms are also teaming up with foreign players to save cost as well as tap and leverage on each other’s strengths and synergies.

“It has been tough for some O&G companies, and some have even closed shop. But for others, they team up to prepare for the tough road ahead such as Petronas which is expanding in various countries as well as Sapura which recently teamed up with Sapura OMV,” said the engineer.

Meanwhile a source at Petronas said the national oil firm is committed in collaborating with TVET graduates via the Petronas Training Institute to produce quality O&G workforce.

However Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia Associate Professor Dr Mohamad Sattar Rasul said more can be done to help TVET graduates as the contributions by the institute is minimal.

“Petronas can do more by introducing an apprenticeship programme to help them secure jobs once they graduate from TVET institutes.

“Petronas can implement the national dual training system which absorbs the graduates into the sector and become part of the country’s oil and gas workforce,” he said.

Ministry identifying youth institutes that can be upgraded to offer diploma courses

PEKAN: The Youth and Sports Ministry is in the process of identifying National Youth Skills Institutes (IKBN) that can be upgraded to offer diploma courses to meet Industry Revolution 4.0 needs, said its minister Syed Saddiq Syed Abdul Rahman.

He said that there are 22 IKBN throughout the country and that some of them had been identified for the purpose so that the graduates’ entry-level pay would be higher.

“Currently, the entry-level pay for IKBN leavers is between RM1,400 to RM1,600 … if IKBN can be upgraded to National Youth Higher Skills Institutes (IKTBN), they (graduates) can secure starting pay of RM1,800 or RM1,900.

“That is why my ministry is making this effort … before upgrading, we have to make sure the IKBN in question has the equipment and facilities necessary.

“… all these are part of the ministry’s efforts to prepare the youth to face the challenges of IR4.0.” he told reporters after opening IKBN Pekan’s Aircraft Structure Improvement Workshop here today.

Pekan IKBN is among those being considered for upgrading into IKTBN.

The minister said the course (Aircraft Structure Improvement) was very significant because Malaysia aims to be a key aerospace industry player.

He stressed that in the new world (IR4.0), expertise in automation, robotics, cloud computing, artificial intelligence and Internet of Things would be vital

Comment: 

For whatever reason that you may not be interested with public TVET/vocational training institutions, there is always a choice at the private TVET/vocational training institutions, better known as Pusat Bertauliah JPK.

According to a survey in 3 Facebook groups recently, it was found that there are 4 main factors why students chose private TVET/vocational training institutions over public.

1. Students generally unaware of the public TVET/vocational training institutions’ existence.
2. Public TVET/vocational training institutions does not offer courses that students wanted to study.
3. Public TVET/vocational training institutions has tight entrance requirement, generally needs a pass in BM & Sejarah for SPM.
4. Private TVET/vocational training institutions are located in strategic locations & produces more competent graduates, more so for certain courses like culinary, aesthethic & hairdressing, automotive technology etc.
