‘Private TVET providers need at least RM1b funding per year’

KUALA LUMPUR: Private Technical Vocational Education and Training (TVET) providers will need an allocation of at least RM1 billion a year for the next five years from the federal budget in order to support a total of 60,000 students, according to the Federation of JPK Accredited Centers Malaysia (FeMAC).

The amount is more than five times this year’s allocation of RM180 million to TVET providers.

FeMAC president P Sailanathan said the group has engaged and presented the figures to TVET task force chairman Nurul Izzah Anwar, who had said she would raise the issue in Parliament.

According to the federation, TVET providers are facing funding crunch. FeMAC alleges the TVET providers have yet to receive up to RM20 million of the total allocated funds since January this year.

“Only a selected few of us (private TVET providers) have received funding [but] a lot more were denied,” Sailanathan told the media yesterday.

So far, the Department of Skills Development and the Skills Development Fund Corp (PTPK) have been “pointing fingers at each other”, without having yet come to a positive outcome on when the remaining funds can be distributed, he added.

Although Minister of Human Resources M Kulasegaran recently said that his ministry has secured an additional RM140 million in funding from the finance ministry for TVET students and providers, the minister has so far not given a timeline for the disbursement, nor has it engaged with FeMAC on the matter.

“We are willing to cooperate, but there is no direction from the ministry. We are neither here nor there,” Sailanathan said, adding that many providers are on the verge of ceasing operations as the students are considering dropping out due to a lack of financial support and they can no longer afford to pay teachers.

To make matters worse, the students may often end up with a minimum of three overlapping loans as they are required to take a new loan for every level of vocational training, which usually amounts to four levels for a diploma.

Kulasegaran has proposed a fixed monthly repayment of RM100 for these students, but details are lacking on implementation.

Considering as many as 90% of TVET graduates find jobs within a year after completing their courses, Sailanathan does not foresee a major problem of them not repaying loans.

Currently, between 60,000 and 80,000 TVET students attend private TVET colleges, which are equivalent to about 13.3% to 17.8% of total tertiary-level students in Malaysia, according to data presented by FeMAC.

A total of about 45% of tertiary-level students in Malaysia are studying for TVET qualifications, compared to 55% at universities.

FeMAC, which represents about 350 private TVET providers out of 636 in total, has called for PTPK to be modelled after National Higher Education Fund Corp, with an abolishment of the current quota system.

Comment: I hope TVET task force chairman Nurul Izzah Anwar could set up a body for check & balance, to monitor the disbursements of the loan. Before this, my understanding is that those providers that are acting as AJK in FeMAC are getting priorities/more funding compared to other ordinary members. Some projects that were awarded to FeMAC mainly benefitted the AJK members. There has been complaints from ordinary members, citing that they didn’t get anything at all as ordinary members.
Disclaimer: Admin is not part of FeMAC, only reporting based on what the TVET providers feedbacked to admin.

Mimos to revise govt’s tech training curriculum

KUALA LUMPUR, Aug 9 — Tech research and development agency Mimos Berhad has been put in charge of improving the government’s Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) programme.

Nurul Izzah Anwar, who heads the government’s TVET task force, said there is an urgent need to enhance the curriculum for Malaysia to remain competitive in the era of Industry 4.0.

“The need for strengthening and transforming TVET has been evident globally in recent years due to the new and more challenging demands from industry, as more nations began opening up and embracing the Fourth Industrial Revolution, in particular, Industry 4.0,” she said in her speech during a seminar on the subject at Mimos’ headquarters here.

She said there was an urgent need for more skilled technicians in the electrical, telecommunications, design sectors and elsewhere.

But she added that they needed to be trained to compete against the automation and artificial intelligence.

She also said the government will hold a townhall session to discuss the TVET masterplan and the budget for it soon, but did not provide a date.

She said TVET has a budget of RM180 million this year, through the Skilled Development Fund Corp Masterplan, a reduction compared to the RM300 million allocated last year.

KUALA LUMPUR, April 10 — Barisan Nasional’s (BN) manifesto for the youths launched tonight has eight pledges, chief among them to strengthen rural economies, guarantee more job opportunities, and increase income and training for young workers.

The creation of ‘agropreneur’ and ‘seapreneur’

To assist youths in rural areas, BN Youth chief Khairy Jamaluddin has promised to allocate RM180 million to fund young farmers, expected to benefit up to 10,000 “agropreneurs”.

Another RM20 million will be allocated to fund “seapreneurs”, affecting up to 1,000 young fishermen.

To create this new breed of rural youth entrepreneurs, he has promised to expand the rural digital economy through various programmes such as eUsahawan, eRezeki and eLadang while making it cheaper for youths to obtain a B2 motorcycle license under the MyLesen programme.

At the manifesto launch tonight, Khairy echoed BN chairman Datuk Seri Najib Razak’s promise to Felda settlers with a RM5,000 incentive for all, special replanting grant and to write off all replanting debts as well as debts incurred in purchasing Felda Global Venture shares.

In the manifesto, he said: “By assisting the youths in rural areas in every district, we will generate more job opportunities and guarantee that rural youths will succeed in the digital world. We will assist farmers and fishermen with funds and training programmes.”

One million jobs for youths

BN has also promised that youths will be able to take part in national infrastructure mega projects. He expected this to be able to generate more job opportunities as well.

More than one million youths will also benefit and be able to obtain career opportunities under Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET), as he plans on expanding the National TVET Boot Camp short courses and premises nationwide.

Another five million schoolchildren will be prepared with the relevant skill sets to face the Digital Industrial Revolution 4.0 while more than one million tertiary education students will be receiving PTPTN loans.

Khairy has also promised to create more high skill job opportunities by developing high tech industries and through MyInternship programme where university students have the opportunity to receive industrial training.

Boosting youth income

Young teachers can rejoice under BN’s leadership with the introduction of a special incentive if they hold tuition classes after school hours while reducing administrative duties.

Under the Fair Works Commission, Khairy promised to improve the market’s salary scale while increasing minimum wage.

He has also promised to reduce the nation’s reliance on foreign workers by 15 per cent. The ratio of employee compensation will also be increased up to 40 per cent of the national gross domestic product.

“We will begin to intervene on salary increment to improve the market’s salary scheme. We will also assist the youths to pick up new online skills or their productivity by assistance to purchase work related software.

“Companies are encouraged to offer flexible working hours and the youths have the opportunity to earn more income through the Orang-E portal,” he said in the manifesto.

Creating more youth entrepreneurs

BN will also allocated RM5 billion assistance into the Youth Entrepreneurial Network — a one-stop centre for all government agencies tasked with assisting young entrepreneurs. The network will reduce bureaucratic red tape while expediting approvals for assistance.

Tax exemption and a special fund will be granted to encourage renowned brands or companies to assist small time entrepreneurs while a digital transformation for the small and medium enterprises via grants and credit loan guarantee is expected to assist them gain access into the international market.

A special allocation for Sabah and Sarawak entrepreneurs will be made available under the National Development Fund where they will provide carve-out and compete initiatives.

Easing the burden of young families

Newly-wedded couples or those planning to get married will receive a financial assistance to ease wedding expenses.

A special parental course in 168 locations nationwide will also be made available for expecting parents while the existing ADAM50 initiative will increase the financial assistance for families with newborns.

Parents who save up for their children’s education will also enjoy a special incentive while children below 12 from low income families living in low cost housing schemes will have access to art and sports classes.

Micro-credit loan conditions specifically for part-time women entrepreneurs will be made available to encourage more women generate income.

Increasing quality of life

Like the main manifesto, affordable housing has received special attention from BN Youth. It has promised to increase the number of affordable homes, make rent more affordable, transit homes, rent-to-own homes and assisting them in getting deposits.

A special bank will be created to stimulate affordable home ownership. The bank will make loan processes for homes below RM300,000 easier.

Khairy also promised to reduce broadband subscription by 50 per cent while doubling its speed in phases. Public universities will be among the first to enjoy high speed internet access of 100 gigabit per second.

Under BN’s rule, each state constituency will enjoy a public internet centre with a minimum speed of 20 megabit per second.

No one left behind

To ensure that everyone will enjoy Malaysia’s economic success, Khairy has given his guarantee to a broad segment of Malaysian society that has been left behind and forgotten.

Islamic religious school graduates will be paired up with Halal Industry Companies while the Orang Asli youths will have job opportunities with green companies. Training will also be provided for disabled youths so they may enter the mainstream job market.

Former drug abusers, former juvenile convicts, the homeless and single teen mothers will also be granted a second chance through training programmes so they too may enter the mainstream job market.

Youth participation in national administration

Youths will also be able to decide on national and local agenda. Khairy promised to establish a Youth Local Council chaired by the local council presidents or mayor so they may debate issues pertaining to youths.

He also promised a 35 per cent youth participation on Rukun Tetangga leadership committees while under the Belia@Kabinet programme, the best ideas from youths voted under the MyCadang application will be submitted to the Cabinet on a monthly basis.

Vocational education and training sector is still missing out on government funding: report

There is a stark difference between schools, VET and higher education spending in Australia, according to our research published today.

The Mitchell Institute’s 2017 report shows that while spending on schools and higher education continues to grow, vocational education and training (VET) expenditure is going in the opposite direction. We are spending less on VET now than we were a decade ago, in real terms.


The chart below shows the trends in expenditure over an 11-year period to 2015-16. This analysis uses 2005-06 as the base index year. Indexing enables comparison of change over time from a common starting point, which is 100 here. So, an increase from 100 to 102 would represent a 2% increase. All expenditure values are in 2015-16 dollars, converted to real terms using a GDP deflator.



This analysis was done using Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) data. While more detailed data are available for each education sector through different collections, the ABS applies the same method for estimating expenditure for each sector. This makes it the best means of making a comparison across schools, VET and higher education.

The figures include all expenditure by government entities – meaning by governments (to both public and private education providers) and also by public schools, TAFEs and universities. This gives us an approximate picture of where the dollars are flowing, and how this is changing over time.

What’s important here is the increasing disparity in expenditure growth between the sectors, particularly between VET and higher education.

VET missing out

This comparison confirms widespread concerns about VET going backwards. Expenditure in 2015-16 was 4.7% below the level in 2005-06.

This tells a worrying story about quality vocational education and training not being a priority for governments.

Key growth employment areas like aged care, early childhood education and hospitality rely on vocational training for skilled workers. Building up vocationally qualified workers in the growing service and caring industries will be essential, particularly as employment in the manufacturing sector declines.

Universities going from strength to strength

Higher education has followed a very different path. Spending has grown by 53% over the 11 years from 2005-06.

These figures include spending on more than just teaching and learning and universities have other significant sources of revenue, including international students.

Even so, it is clear that governments, and Australians collectively, are prioritising spending on university education over vocational training.

Early years catching up

This is the second time preschool has been included in this overview of education expenditure.

The chart below compares growth in expenditure on preschool, alongside the other education sectors over the same 11-year period.



Although coming off a much lower base, preschool spending grew rapidly following the National Partnership Agreement on Universal Access to Early Childhood Education in 2009. This growth reflects a growing awareness of the importance of the early years among governments.


This comparison shows where we are focusing our education resources as a nation.

These diverging patterns of expenditure across the education sectors reflect our longstanding fragmented approach to policy and funding, particularly at the tertiary level.

Under current policy settings, it is not hard to imagine the already considerable discrepancy between VET expenditure and higher education and school expenditure continuing to grow.

This report, the fourth in the series, should prompt government to consider a more strategic approach to distributing resources across the education sector.

The uneven approach between VET and higher education in particular reflects an ongoing failure to conceive of the two as part of a single tertiary education system.

This blindspot continues to act as a barrier to the creation of the responsive, integrated education and training system many are arguing is needed to sustain economic growth in a changing world.

Comment: Malaysia should be applauded for going the other way round but then, leakages are still rampant. Recent swindled fund of RM40 million from PTPK is a very good example. It has caused the private providers to have a very hard time recruiting students due to very low quota for funding

Lack of information hampers vocational training push

Vocational schools provide youths opportunities to acquire skills, such as hair styling and also small business opportunities. — Bernama picVocational schools provide youths opportunities to acquire skills, such as hair styling and also small business opportunities. — Bernama pic

IPOH, Nov 25 — Lack of information and inadequate career guidance have contributed to the decline of non-academically inclined secondary students taking up vocational courses.

Most said they were unaware of Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) after completing their Form Three.

Kalaiarasan Pandian, 19, from Kampar, said he wasn’t aware of TVET programmes when he chose to stop schooling after Form Three.

“I was not aware of TVET courses and even my teachers did not suggest I take up vocational training.

“They only persuaded me to complete my studies until Form Five,” he told Malay Mail recently.

He also said he did not know where the TVET institutions were, and this hampered the process of applying for courses offered.

Kalaiarasan, now employed as a motorcycle mechanic, said he quit studying as his academic results were not up to mark and his parents could not provide financial support to further his studies.

On Monday, Deputy Education Minister Datuk P. Kamalanathan said only seven per cent of students across the country took up TVET after Form Three.

He also said the ministry took various steps to increase rural students’ enrolment in vocational colleges.

The measures were gaining popularity following broadcasts over radio channels, newspaper advertisements and collaboration with non-governmental organisations.

Teenager, Veenod Nathan,18, from Pusing, Perak, said he did not know about the TVET programme as there wasn’t much promotion on it.

“I’m not aware of  TVET courses and the vocational schools that I know are from my home.

“I quit school two years ago as I wasn’t performing well in studies and at the same time my father met with a bad accident.

“He could not go to work and I have to support my family by working,” he said.

Veenod who is working as a labourer in a warehouse said students who fared poorly in their studies might go for vocational courses if proper guidance were given to them.

Khoo See Nee, 28, who is also a school drop-out, lamented that vocational training such as TVET was not available during her schooling days.

“If I had this option back then, I would definitely have taken up vocational training,” she said.

Khoo said she did not pursue any other vocational education after coming out of school as her guardians could not support her.

Another dropout, who wished to be only known as Derrick, said he felt he had no purpose in life after gaining his SPM last year.

“I did not know what to do and I ended doing various jobs merely to pass time,” the 19-year-old said.

A relative then introduced Derrick to vocational studies.

Currently undergoing training to repair air conditioners and refrigerators in Kuala Lumpur, Derrick took a loan from Kojadi to subsidise the RM20,000 needed for the course.

Meanwhile, MCA Youth vocational education bureau committee member Jimmy Loh blamed parents and students for the lack of interest in vocational training.

“Parents prefer their children to follow the traditional path which can land them a degree but they are not aware that you can also earn a degree from vocational courses,” he said.

Students, he said, were not bothered to seek out information about vocational courses.

AVOID BEING FOOLED BY COLLEGES IN MALAYSIA!

Well, this was shared by one of my friend in the IPTS.

“Don’t get fooled by fake promises and offers, especially 2016 SPM Leavers and their parents!.

Misleading information such as Bantuan Kementerian Sumber Manusia, Peluang Ke Pengajian Tinggi, Diploma Kerajaan are very viral since the release of SPM results yesterday.

Please verify with the relevant authorities or consultants before making any decision. What you should know before choosing a college? Check for this basic 5 points as listed below!

1. Check whether they are registered with Ministry of Higher Education! There are some irresponsible parties offering diplomas and skills certificate without the approval from MOHE or DSD. There are cases of non genuine courses offered to the public under the name of Professional Diploma and Executive Certificate. So please stay alert folks.

2. Minimum entry requirement for a diploma programme which is accredited by MQA differs depending on the field of the programme. Exp:- Any hospitality related courses requires the candidates to obtain a pass in their SPM with minimum 3 credits. Skills certificates such as SKM requires a minimum age of 16 to enroll. So when it said Diploma, check for this details. If it is stated that minimum age of 16 and 3M as the requirements, it is Skills Certificate programme under the Department of Skills Development.
For the listing of DSD (or JPK in BM) Accredited Training Providers & their programmes, kindly search here

3. Are the courses fully accredited or still under provisional accreditation? You can check this by simply looking at their course code. Full accreditation will have the alphabet beginning with A*** and Provisional Accreditation will reflect PA at the beginning of the code. What is the meaning? PA is given to any new course that is approved by MQA to be offered in the institution. The college or institution need to be accessed again after 2 years of provisional period by MQA. If MQA feels that the college has met the minimum requirements and programme standard, the college will be given Full Accreditation. It is something like from a ‘P’ to Full driving license process.

4. Know your sponsor or financial assistance providers:-
PTPTN – provide loan for IPTA & IPTS programmes
PTPK – provide loan for JPK programmes

5. Compare the course structure!
Please ensure that relevant subjects are offered in the programme. Evaluate whether the subjects offered are industry based or competent. It is good to have a balance study of 50% theory and 50% practical. Rather that choosing Diploma in Business Management, consider joining Diploma in Baking Science or Diploma in Culinary or Diploma in Entrepreneurship. For an example:-

Course offered at MIB College:

Diploma in Baking Science & Technology. Apart from baking and food related subjects, the students are required to take subjects like Economics, Accounting, Marketing, Human Resource Management, Operations Management, Financial Management, Cost Accounting, Business Maths and many more!

So try putting yourself in the employers shoes and ask yourself. Do you prefer baking graduate or business graduate? Do you prefer students with merely paper based qualification or equipped with some hands on practical skills?

Remember! One of the reason for unemployment is lack of industrial competency of the graduates.

Budget 2013: Facts & Figures

THE 2013 BUDGET SPEECH By YAB DATO’ SRI MOHD NAJIB TUN HAJI ABDUL RAZAK PRIME MINISTER AND MINISTER OF FINANCE INTRODUCING THE SUPPLY BILL (2013) IN THE DEWAN RAKYAT FRIDAY, 28 SEPTEMBER 2012 “PROSPERING THE NATION, ENHANCING WELL-BEING OF THE RAKYAT: A PROMISE FULFILLED”

Skills and Training

65. Moving on to the issue of knowledgeable, creative and innovative human capital, training programmes will be developed to hone new skills in line with future needs of industry in a high-income and developed economy. For this purpose, RM3.7 billion will be allocated in 2013 to train students in technical and vocational fields.

66. Every year about 180,000 students graduate with diplomas and degrees from institutions of higher learning. To assist unemployed graduates, the Government will launch the Graduate Employability Blueprint by end-2012. The Blueprint will focus on strengthening the employability of graduates. In this regard, the Government will establish the Graduate Employability Taskforce with an allocation of RM200 million.

67. The Government has implemented the 1Malaysia Training Scheme Programme, also known as SL1M, to increase employability of graduates through soft skills training and on-the-job-training in private companies through double deduction on expenses incurred by the companies. This incentive is effective from 1 June 2012 until 31 December 2016.

68. The Government will allocate RM440 million to the Skills Development Fund Corporation (PTPK), to provide loans for trainees to undergo skills training. This measure will benefit nearly 40,000 trainees undertaking the Malaysia Skill Certificate Level One to Five. The Government will allocate RM366 million to upgrade as well as purchase equipment for Industrial Training Institutes and National Youth Vocational Institutes (IKBN).

69. In line with the objective to transform the country’s key industries towards high technology, innovation and high income, various skills training programmes will be implemented. Towards this, focus will be given to create a professional and talented workforce in selected industries, including oil and gas, shipping, ICT, creative and biotechnology. In 2013, about 5,000 trainees are expected to enrol in these programmes. Additionally, PETRONAS will utilise IKBN in Pengerang, Johor to train 300 youths for the oil and gas sector by end of 2012 to meet the needs of the RAPID project.

70. The Government is aware of the plight of poor Malaysian Indian students in the estates who do not achieve good results in examination and are unable to find jobs. In line with this, the Government will allocate RM50 million to train 3,200 Malaysian Indian students in the estates to equip them with skills in line with market demand. The training will be conducted by Industrial Training Institutes and colleges under the Dual National Training Scheme.

Comment: Looks good but hope no more big leakages eg equipment that cost RM 1,000 (market price) is invoiced for RM 4-5K that has happened in the past!
