After the recent announcement of Malaysia’s Budget 2020, Dato’ Noor Farida Mohd Ariffin, Chairman, Human Resources Development Fund (HRDF) has thanked the Federal Government for the budget allocation of RM50 million to the Fund.

“This allocation will empower the Fund to continue its mandate to catalyse the development of a competent local workforce, contributing to the Government’s aspiration to drive growth and equitable outcomes towards shared prosperity,” she said.

She has provided details on how HRDF plans to fulfil this mandate. “With an allocated budget of RM30 million for TVET, the Fund aims to reduce the country’s unemployment rate which currently stands at 3.3%.”

As such, HRDF will continue to collaborate with the Ministry of Human Resources, industry players and employers to provide TVET training programmes catered to employ 3,000 youths from low-income households.

The targeted B40 youths will be trained in courses with fast employability rate such as escalator and elevator service and maintenance; housekeeping operation; retail operation; commercial driver training and certification programme; and professional certificate in logistics and supply chain operations.

The Fund will also match the Government’s allocation of RM20 million with an additional RM20 million towards upskilling a further 4,000 Malaysians through professional certification examinations related to IR4.0.

These certifications are aligned to the main pillars of IR4.0, such as internet of things; cybersecurity; big data; and cloud computing. For these, the Fund will collaborate with the Malaysia Digital Economy Corporation (MDEC).

Dato’ Noor Farida also cited other initiatives such Housewives Enhancement and Reactivate Talent Scheme (HEARTS); the Graduates Enhancement Programme For Employability 2.0 (GENERATE); and the Sistem Latihan Dual Nasional Apprenticeship.

She added: “With the 2020 budget allocation by the Government to the Fund, it will continue its role in supporting the nation’s human capital development towards reducing skills and economic gaps; promote the employability and mobility of Malaysian talent; and encourage job creation and inclusivity for prosperity.”

AEON Co (M) Bhd has launched the Aeon Bakery School programme, an initiative that grooms and trains individuals to become certified bakers.

Students who successfully complete the programme will be able to gain employment at Aeon branches nationwide.

The school’s main objective is to boost Aeon’s efforts to continue grooming young talents as well as provide an opportunity for Malaysians with a passion for baking, or for those who want to acquire a new skill.

Aeon Co (M) Bhd managing director Shinobu Washizawa said: “This initiative to provide guaranteed employment with the company is our endeavour to support a niche division of the food segment in the country.

“We believe this programme can provide individuals, especially those with a passion for baking or desire to develop new skills, the necessary training and support to secure a future in the industry,” he said at the launch of the.

Present to launch the event was Human Resources Ministry Skills Development Department director-general Nidzam Kamarulzaman.

This was followed by the unveiling of the Aeon Bakery School logo and a tour of the school.

Endorsed by the Skills Development Department, the programme will be conducted by qualified professionals with over 22 years of experience under Aeon’s Merchandising Bakery team and Aeon Food Processing Centre.

These divisions are responsible for providing training to new bakers, creating new recipes as well as managing the production, preparation, handling and transportation of raw materials and ingredients to the branches.

To ensure the programme is in line with Malaysian education standards, the format used is similar to the skills training centre programme, where there is 20% emphasis on baking theories and 80% on industrial training.

Students undergo a two-and-a-half-month theory class at Aeon Bakery School at Aeon Mall Metro Prima before continuing industrial training for five-and-a-half months at one of the five registered Aeon branches – Bandar Utama and Metro Prima in Selangor, and Mid Valley, Taman Maluri and Wangsa Maju, in Kuala Lumpur.

The programme offers two intakes annually with up to 25 students per intake.

Students receive a monthly allowance throughout the course, in addition to insurance coverage.

Transportation and accommodation are also provided during the programme.

Upon graduation, they will be awarded the Malaysian Skills Certificate (Level 2) from the Skills Development Department, and later absorbed as permanent in-house bakers at selected Aeon bakeries.

Application for admission to the baking school programme is open to all Malaysians and selected Aeon employees aged 18 to 27.

Applicants must have either Penilaian Menengah Rendah (PMR) or Sijil Pelajaran Malaysia (SPM) qualifications.

Full-time Aeon employees who have served in any department for more than six months are also eligible to apply.

“Through this pilot project, we hope for Aeon to lead the way in cultivating talents of international standards in the baking industry,” said Washizawa.

Later, the first batch of Aeon Bakery School students received their offer letters from Aeon Co (M) Bhd.

Washizawa received the Training Centre and Company Accreditation Certificate and the Induction Course Certificate on behalf of the school from Nidzam.

Interested applicants can get the registration form from the Customer Service counter at any Aeon branch nationwide.

National Dual Training System (NDTS) / Sistem Latihan Dual Nasional (SLDN)

NDTS is an industry-oriented training program that combines workplace and institutional training.

School leavers or existing workers who meet the criteria can be offered as apprentices by a sponsoring company to undergo training.

A contract is signed between the company and the apprentices prior to the training. Apprentices are given certain amount of allowance throughout the training by the company and are obliged to work with the company upon completion if they are offered employment.

The hands-on training is conducted continuously and the apprentice is expected to get through the assessment as well as the final test which will be conducted at the end of the training programme. Successful apprentices will be awarded with the national skills qualification by Department of Skills Development (DSD).

SUMMARY

Participating in NDTS is an appropriate decision for every enterprise to make, in order to ensure that apprentices are trained to become k-workers for the development of human capital to steer Malaysia to become a developed nation by the year 2020.

With NDTS in place, Malaysia’s growth is well on its way towards an industry driven skilled workforce development approach. The opportunity to be a part of NDTS not only enhances corporate performance, but also represents a commitment to investment in human resources.

All companies and business enterprises are welcomed to participate and implement the NDTS. The system is established for company interest and benefit.

Department of Skills Development as the coordinating body will provide assistance and guidance to ensure that company can participate in the system.

Vocational training option for students after PMR

KAJANG: Secondary school students in selected institutions can sign up for the National Dual Training System (SLDN) after their Penilaian Menengah Rendah (PMR).“The enrolment of students in the programme is expected to reach 15,000 by next year,” said Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassinat SM Vokasional Kajang yesterday.Previously, secondary school students who were interested in vocational training would have to wait until after their Sijil Pelajaran Malaysia (SPM).Muhyiddin added that the programme comprised a 70% practical component with host companies and 30% training at the educational institutions.

Currently, it is only available at three vocational institutions located here, in Sungai Buloh and Batu Pahat.

The programme will be extended to all 79 vocational colleges in stages by next year.

The SLDN, which is a collaborative programme with the Human Resources Ministry, will see courses offered in up to 53 fields.

“I believe SLDN will become a preferred choice in the future, with more multinational companies and industries taking part,” said Muhyiddin after the launch of the programme and the signing of a cooperation agreement with the Human Resources Ministry.

Muhyiddin, who is also Education Minister, said the initiative was in line with the 10th Malaysia Plan and was crucial if the country were to produce highly-skilled workers.
