Datuk Seri Richard Riot Jaem said the government is targeting to create about 1.5 million new jobs by 2020, with 60 per cent of them requiring those having Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET). — Picture by Zuraneeza ZulkifliSERIAN, March 24 — The government is targeting to create about 1.5 million new jobs by 2020, with 60 per cent of them requiring those having Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET), said Human Resource Minister Datuk Seri Richard Riot Jaem.

This, he said, made TVET and important platform to enhance the skills of Malaysian work force, with 35 per cent of the skilled workers to be produced by 2020.

Towards this end, he said, the government under the leadership of Prime Minister Datuk Seri Mohd Najib Tun Razak had emphasised the need to alleviate TVET to mainstream education and with that, appointed the ministry as coordinator of TVET Malaysia.

“TVET is now seen as among the competitive field,” he told a media conference after officiating the ground-breaking ceremony for the Serian Industrial Training Institute (ILPS) here today.

He said diverse employment opportunities awaited TVET graduates, as well as to venture into business and become digital technopreneurs.

According to Riot, currently, 28 per cent of the Malaysian work-force were highly-skilled, and efforts would be made to increase it to 35 per cent in 2020.

He advised students to undertake skills training to make it easier for them to obtain jobs.

On the Serian ILP Serian project, Riot said it would be built on a  56.76 acre site in Kampung Tenggak, Serian, and cost RM300 million.

Construction work on the project would begin in May this year and expected to complete in 33 months, he said.

Riot said the ILP in Serion was scheduled to be in operation in 2021 and could accommodate 600 trainees at one time.

The Serian ILP will be the fourth in Sarawak, after the one in Miri, Kota  Samarahan and Bintulu.

Gaji minimum graduan TVET dicadang dinaikkan kepada RM3,500

Gaji minimum graduan TVET dicadang dinaikkan kepada RM3,500

Ahmad Zahid mencadangkan gaji minimum bagi tenaga kerja mahir lepasan Latihan dan Pendidikan Teknikal dan Vokasional (TVET) dinaikkan daripada RM1,200 kepada sekurang-kurangnya RM3,500.

KUALA LUMPUR: Timbalan Perdana Menteri, Datuk Seri Ahmad Zahid Hamidi mencadangkan gaji minimum bagi tenaga kerja mahir lepasan Latihan dan Pendidikan Teknikal dan Vokasional (TVET) dinaikkan daripada RM1,200 kepada sekurang-kurangnya RM3,500.

Langkah itu jelasnya, bagi menyelaraskan gaji minimum pekerja mahir dari luar negara yang kini memperoleh gaji minimum lebih daripada angka berkenaan.

“Kalau kita lihat kini pekerja mahir yang mendapat kelulusan khas expatriate oleh Imigresen Malaysia mesti mempunyai gaji minima RM3,500. Jadi kita kena samakan (gaji pekerja mahir tempatan) dengan pekerja mahir luar sekurang-kurangnya RM3,500.

“Tentunya kita mesti menaikkan kadar gaji minima pekerja mahir ini menyamai sekurang-kurangnya seperti pekerja expatriate luar negara,”katanya dalam sidang media selepas melancarkan Ekspo  TVET Malaysia 2018 di Pusat Dagangan Dunia Putra (PWTC) di sini hari ini.

Dalam pada itu, Ahmad Zahid juga mencadangkan Majlis TVET Msia diwujudkan seperti mana yang diumumkan Perdana Menteri, Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak untuk  memperlihatkan keprihathinan kerajaan dasar program berkenaan.

Sehubungan itu satu kertas memorandum mengenai Majlis TVET Malaysia akan disediakan oleh Menteri Sumber Manusia, Datuk Seri Richard Riot sebelum dibentangkan di peringkat kabinet.

“Jika dipersetujui jemaah menteri, saya akan mempengerusikan Majlis TVET Malaysia, bukan sahaja koordinasi, tetapi juga pengiktirafan oleh sebuah badan khusus dapat dilakukan bagi membolehkan kebolehpasaran guna tenaga yang tidak diselaras,” ujarnya.

Tambahnya, Malaysia mensasarkan gaji minima tenaga kerja mahir lepasan TVET akan mencapai RM5,000 pada tahun 2030.

“Ini menggalakkan lebih ramai guna tenaga masuk ke bidang TVET ini. Saya juga mencadangkan selain kemahiran yang akan diperoleh melalui kursus , mereka perlu diberi peluang untuk dapat diploma dan ijazah supaya kombinasi ini akan membolehkan mereka berada di tahap yang sepatutnya . kata beliau lagi.

Ahmad Zahid juga menegaskan TVET bukan lagi pilihan kedua, sebaliknya menjadi pilihan pertama.

Ketika ini katanya, guna tenaga mahir Malaysia mencatatkan 28 peratus dan Malaysia mensasarkan untuk mencapai 43 peratus tenaga kerja mahir apabila negara mencapai status negara maju.

Komen: Timbalan Menteri kita ni pandai, bukan syiok sendiri, tapi nak anak-anak muda kita syiok sendiri (kan PRU dah dekat?). Kalau saya tak salah mentafsir kenyataan beliau, gaji minima bermaksud graduan yang masih mentah pun mula dengan RM3,500?
Tanyalah pengurus sumber manusia, majikan dan rata-ratanya orang ramai yang sudah jejak dunia pekerjaan, adakah kebanyakan graduan kini, tak kira kemahiran ke akademik, layak?
Kelemahan bahasa, komunikasi, sikap dsbgnya menjadi punca saya kata kebanyakannya tidak layak. Ini kerana produktiviti mereka tidak akan setimpal dengan gaji minima yang akan dibayar (jika RM3,500).
Tidak boleh dinafikan ada segolongan kecil graduan yang layak namun saya rasa ia adalah minoriti.

Apa pula kata anda?

Riot Dismisses Claims That TVET Problematic, Not Systematic

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.

Comment: There is an effort to develop eSports NOSS, so for those who are in the industry who plan to set up an academy and offer a nationally recognised certificate (SKM) in eSports, be prepared for it.
