PUTRAJAYA: A National Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) Coordinating Body will be established to combine various sectors into a single system.

Education Minister Dr Maszlee Malik said the body will be established to make sure that TVET, in the future, will be seen as a single entity.

“This is in line with the government’s hopes to make TVET a mainstream choice, instead of an alternative,” he said at the launch of the National TVET Campaign, here, today.

Also present at the event was Human Resources Minister M. Kulasegaran.

Maszlee said the establishment of the body and its objectives will be announced later.

He said the establishment of the body was among five cores of TVET revolution which will help create a skilled workforce by 2030.

“We will be focusing on a financial model to make sure funds are sufficient for TVET, the Shared Ownership Model, strengthening TVET Certification and a National Singular TVET Brand,” he said.

He said the five cores were the way forward and they will provide solutions to all issues pertaining to TVET.

“Among the issues are accreditation, lack of facilities and the TVET system. We are confident that all these problems can be addressed.”

Maszlee said that in order for TVET to be further empowered, a change of mindset was needed.

“We have to involve more industries to strengthen dual-training programmes. We need to shift from industry participation to industry partnership before it can eventually become an industry-led TVET,” he said.

On Aug 14, the Technical and Vocational Education and Training Empowerment Cabinet Committee (JKKPTVET) was set up as the government’s commitment to strengthen coordination and cooperation between ministries and stakeholders in the TVET system.

JKKPTVET comprised eight ministers, namely human resources, youth and sports, works, rural development, entrepreneur development, agriculture and agro-based industry, domestic trade and consumer affairs and education.

Present were JKKPTVET technical chairman Tan Sri Soh Thian Lai and Human Resources Minister M. Kula Segaran. Soh said based on surveys, the main issues and challenges for TVET education included community perception, where people saw it as having limited job opportunities.

“TVET providers also operate in silos, resulting in overlapping courses and creating confusion for students and employers.”

“It is the government’s policy to raise the level of skilled workforce to 35 per cent by 2020. To do so, we need to increase TVET student enrolment to 225,000 by 2020.”

The committee has held six townhalls, five workshops and numerous engagements to strategise the way forward for TVET.

“Based on a series of townhalls, engagements and sessions to support the TVET Empowerment Plan, 20 strategies and 15 recommendations have been proposed based on five pillars, namely governance, funding, industry, quality and branding,”

He also said some industry-led TVET collaborations remain as models for cooperation between the ministry and industry.

They are the FMMMidaMOE Apprentice programme, PSDC-Penang Free Trade Zone Industries, Langkawi Tourism Academy and Malaysian Association of Hotels collaboration and Malaysian German Chamber of Commerce German Dual Vocational Training Programme.

Maszlee said he hoped that TVET institutions would work together with universities and innovation agencies to introduce new technology to re-map the institutions according to industry demand.

The National TVET campaign, which runs until November, will include the search of TVET Valued Industry Partners (VIP) and TVET Influencers. There will also be a competition for the national TVET logo and slogan.

The ministry has set seven strategies to achieve these goals.

“The first strategy is to change from ‘train and place’ to ‘place and train’ educational concept; while the second one is to introduce a co-ownership model between the government and industries for equipment technologies, expertise and innovation.

“The third strategy is to establish an industry-based centre of excellence (CoE), while the fourth strategy is about introducing the TVET Valued Industry Partners (TVET VIP) to encourage industries to empower TVET.”

The remaining three strategies involve mobilising flat mobility of expertise to ensure coordination between industries and TVET institutes; creating employment oppurtunities and a level wage to make sure TVET graduates are paid well with good career prospects; and to set up Industry-led Competency Certification Bodies.

Comment: Hopefully, TVET Coordinating Body would finally be able to streamline everything into a single system. Else, it will just be another futile effort. Sad to say, Malaysia has many great blueprints & policies, but when it comes to implementation, really sucks. That’s why countries like South Korea that used to be on par with us during the 70’s are now much more advanced that us and countries that used to be behind us like Vietnam is fast catching up & gonna overtake us soon if we don’t buck up!

TVET Pendidikan utama masa hadapan

TVET Pendidikan utama masa hadapan

PUTRAJAYA – Kementerian Pendidikan mahu bidang Pendidikan dan Latihan Teknikal dan Vokasional (TVET) dijadikan pilihan utama dan bukan lagi sebagai cabang alternatif. Menteri Pendidikan, Dr Maszlee Malik, berkata, beliau juga mahu TVET dilihat sebagai suatu entiti tunggal yang besar dan seragam, tidak terpecah-pecah dan sekali gus berkongsi suatu sistem kuat serta menyeluruh.

“Semua tindakan telah kita lakukan khususnya, menubuhkan Badan Penyelaras TVET Negara yang sekali gus menyatukan TVET di bawah satu bumbung dan sistem tunggal yang lebih berdaya saing.

“Secara ringkasnya, reformasi TVET akan berpaksikan lima tonggak utama, iaitu menubuhkan Badan Penyelaras TVET Negara, memberi tumpuan kepada kecukupan modal pembiayaan, membangunkan modal pemilikan bersama.

“Ini termasuk juga memperkasakan persijilan TVET (Industri) dan menjenamakan TVET dengan nama baharu TVET Kebangsaan Tunggal,” katanya.

Belia berkata demikian dalam ucapannya sempena Sesi Dialog Kementerian Bersama Industri untuk Memperkasakan TVET.

Turut hadir pada sesi dialog itu, Menteri Sumber Manusia, M Kulasegaran; Presiden Persekutuan Majikan-majikan Malaysia (MEF), Tan Sri Azman Shah Haron dan Pengerusi Teknikal Jawatankuasa Kabinet Pemerkasaan TVET, Tan Sri Datuk Soh Thian Lai.

Turut terlibat 40 wakil organisasi dalam kalangan persatuan perdagangan dan industri, perniagaan dan pembekal perkhidmatan TVET.

Kata Maszlee, Rancangan Malaysia ke-11 (RMK11) secara spesifik telah menyatakan bahawa TVET adalah pemacu perubahan di mana kerajaan mensasarkan 35 peratus pekerja mahir dapat dihasilkan menjelang 2020.

“Kemahiran profesional ini haris diangkat sebagai pendidikan dan kerjaya pilihan utama.

“Usaha kerajaan untuk merealisasikan aspirasi tersebut melibatkan sistem akreditasi yang diharmonikan dengan jaminan kualiti bagi membolehkan mobiliti pelajar antara institusi TVET merentas kementerian,” katanya.

Beliau berkata, setiap institusi pendidikan dan latihan TVET perlu bekerjasama dengan universiti serta agensi inovasi untuk memperkenalkan teknologi baharu yang boleh dimanfaatkan industri.

“Usaha ini secara tidak langsung dapat meningkatkan permintaan industri terhadap graduan TVET. Selain sejajarkan hala tuju institusi TVET dengan keperluan industri, terutamanya dalam menuju Revolusi Industri 4.0,”katanya.

Sementara itu, mengulas mengenai majlis yang dianjurkan, Maszlee berkata, Jawatankuasa Kabinet Pemerkasaan TVET melancarkan Kempen TVET Kebangsaan yang membabitkan pelancaran logo dan slogan, pencarian TVET Influencer dan Anugerah TVET Valued Industry Partners (VIP).

Kempen ini berlangsung sehingga bulan November ini adalah salah satu strategi utama bagi memperkasakan TVET di Malaysia,” katanya.

Lahirkan tenaga kerja mahir

Sementara itu, Pengerusi Teknikal JKKPTVET, Tan Sri Soh Thian Lai berkata, dialog industri itu bertujuan mewujudkan kesedaran dan kesediaan kepada pihak industri menjadi rakan kongsi dalam menghasilkan cabaran masa depan, kerjaya, dan memenuhi kehendak negara.

Beliau berkata, reformasi TVET menerima lima tonggak yang akan diwujudkan di bawah komuniti teknikal, iaitu pentadbiran, kualiti, industri, kewangan dan pengurusan.

“Lepasan TVET juga akan dipertingkatkan dengan teknologi dan kemahiran terkini bagi meningkatkan produktiviti, seterusnya mengurangkan kebergantungan kepada pekerja asing,” katanya ketika berucap di Sesi Dialog, Memperkasa TVET, Kementerian bersama Industri.

Tambah beliau, kementerian juga akan memberikan kira-kira 70 peratus tempoh latihan dalam sektor industri dan perkilangan kepada pelatih.

“Setelah tamat latihan, pelatih berpeluang memperoleh gaji yang lebih tinggi kerana telahpun didedahkan dengan budaya kerja dan mempunyai pengalaman,” katanya.
