Sijil induksi PP-PPD-PPB/PP-PPT/PPL dicetak sendiri mulai 2020

Sampel sijil induksi yang dicetak oleh pihak JPK sebelum ini

Untuk makluman semua, pihak JPK TIDAK AKAN CETAK lagi sijil induksi PP-PPD-PPB, PP-PPT & PPL mulai tahun 2020.
Para peserta dikehendaki untuk cetak sendiri dari www.skkm.gov.my, tulah sebabnya semua peserta perlu daftar dalam sistem dulu, sebaik-baiknya 2 minggu sebelum tarikh kursus kerana perlu masa untuk disemak oleh pihak urusetia.

Anda boleh cetak sijil induksi anda setelah keputusan telah ada (biasanya 1-3 bulan lamanya) dan telah dikemaskini dalam www.skkm.gov.my. Kertas yang digunakan boleh je A4 70gm, 80gm, kadbod…. suka hati andalah.

Adakah ini akan menyebabkan isu sijil palsu berlaku? Ya, mungkin juga pada pendapat min. Jadi, nak tahu betul ke tak, perlu la juga semak dalam sistem skkm.gov.my nanti.

Empowering TVET among priorities of HR Ministry

KUALA LUMPUR, Jan 18 — Empowering Technical and Vocational Education Training (TVET) by developing a more relevant new policy in implementing TVET’s agenda in line with industry needs was part of the Ministry of Human Resources’s plan throughout 2019.

This was outlined in the Ministry of Human Resource’s 2019 achievement report to strengthen the various sectors under the ministry led by M. Kulasegaran, while also committed to championing the rights of workers in the country.

Touching on issues related to workers including skills upgrading, TVET education, security, law and others in the 32-page report card, the Ministry of Human Resources is committed towards improving every aspect in line with fulfilling the promises contained in the Pakatan Harapan’s manifesto.

With a RM5.9 billion allocation via the 2020 Budget to place TVET in the main stream in the country, the ministry has begun to take step by establishing the TVET Single Quality Assurance System to be used by the Malaysian Qualifications Agency (MQA) and the Department of Skills Development (JPK) for the purpose of coordinating, monitoring and strengthening the TVET sector.

According to Kulasegaran, the new system is responsible for accrediting TVET programmes offered by public and private TVET institutions based on the Second Edition Of The Malaysia Qualification Framework (MQF 2.0) which was approved at the MQA Council Meeting in December 2017.

“The implementation of TVET quality assurance programme by MQA and JPK will be made based on the TVET Programme Accreditation Code of Practice approved by the Cabinet Meeting on Jan 31, 2019,” he said.

In line with the latest trend of Industrial Revolution (IR) 4.0 education or 4.0 era education, Kulasegaran said 35 National Occupational Skills Standards (NOSS) related to IR 4.0 were developed in 2018.

“To date, there are 42 NOSS related to IR 4.0 as a result of TVET’s National Master Plan Development Study towards a developed nation and the direction until 2030 will be used by policy makers in the process of reforming TVET implementation in Malaysia,” he said.
The efforts to empower the TVET field did not stop there when the ministry took the initiative to expand its field of study by signing a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with Private Secondary School (SUWA) on May 23, 2019 at Kolej Universiti New Era in Kajang.

“The collaboration between the two entities led to the ministry’s involvement in allowing SUWA students to attend training programmes at 32 Department of Human Resource Training Institutes (ILJTM) and enabling the ministry to consider loan applications or scholarships to eligible students for further study in TVET programmes, Vocational Training Officers (VTO) and so on,” he said. — Bernama

Syarat Lantikan Guru Kemahiran/Vokasional – VTO sahaja?

Calon internship – pembentangan kepada PPL pada penghujung 720jam internship

Masih ramai yang keliru, apa beza tenaga pengajar dan Pegawai Penilai di Pusat Bertauliah JPK.

Secara ringkasnya:

Tenaga pengajar – Pemegang sijil kemahiran/diploma/ijazah dalam bidang NOSS berkenaan, walaupun tiada sijil VTO.
Boleh mengajar tapi TAK BOLEH MENILAI (tandatangan portfolio calon program SKM/DKM/DLKM)

Pegawai Penilai – Mengikut Akta 652 (NASDA) Standard 6 : Pengajar Kemahiran mestilah memiliki sekurang-kurangnya SKM bidang Pengajar Vokasional yang diiktiraf oleh Jabatan Pembangunan Kemahiran, Kementerian Sumber Manusia.
Boleh mengajar DAN MENILAI/TANDATANGAN portfolio calon program SKM/DKM/DLKM.

Dalam konteks SKM, minimum adalah SKM3, kecuali bidang tertentu yang tiada Tahap 1-3, DKM/DLKM, Diploma & Ijazah akademik tapi bidang berkaitan boleh diterima.
DAN
SKM bidang Pengajar Vokasional yang dimaksudkan adalah Sijil VOCATIONAL TRAINING OPERATION (VTO), I-031-3:2014

Jadi, boleh dikatakan peluang pekerjaan Pegawai Penilai adalah lebih tinggi berbanding tenaga pengajar (sebab tak boleh nilai)

Namun, selain SKM3 ke atas & siijl VTO, anda perlu juga ada sijil
Induksi PP-PPD-PPB (Siri D1/12/2019 pada 7&8 Dis 2019) supaya layak dilantik sebagai Pegawai Penilai.

Dr M: TVET to be prioritised to enhance people’s income

Watch the video at Astro Awani‘s FB Page on Shared Prosperity Vision

Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad said the move was important to “upskill” the people to be more capable and efficient, and be able to do more “sophisticated work”. – NSTP/MOHD FADLI HAMZAH


PUTRAJAYA: The government will place priority on technical and vocational education and training (TVET), in efforts to increase the people’s income, under the Shared Prosperity Vision.

Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad said the move was important to “upskill” the people to be more capable and efficient, and be able to do more “sophisticated work”.

“The income gap between the rich and poor is too wide so we need to increase the people’s income.

“But we don’t want to do this by just increasing wages but (we want) to improve their capacity so that they are more productive, and give them training so that they are more capable and efficient.

“For example, we are already in the aerospace industry, and even some parts of airplane engines assembly are being done in Malaysia.” he said this after chairing a special cabinet meeting on the Shared Prosperity Vision here, yesterday.

Dr Mahathir said the cabinet has agreed that TVET played an important role in improving the skills of workers and that training must be made a priority.

“Our (2020) Budget would prioritise such areas. If there is not enough money for all, we would have to lessen the budget for other areas with lesser priority,” he added.

Dr Mahathir said the government would also give focus to poorer states, reducing wealth disparities from richer states.

He listed Kelantan, Perlis and Kedah as among the three poorest states in Malaysia.

“Another gap is between the urban and rural areas, where those living in urban areas are richer than those staying in the rural areas.

“So a programme must be created to increase the income of those living in the rural areas,” Dr Mahathir added.

In explaining further, Economic Affairs Minister Datuk Seri Mohamed Azmin Ali said the government would apply the spirit of shared prosperity in the 2020 Budget, and prioritise sectors such as TVET and skills training.

“This will be given consideration by the Finance Ministry to be refined in the 2020 Budget.”

The Shared Prosperity Vision was announced by Dr Mahathir at the tabling of the mid-term review of the 11th Malaysia Plan in October 2018 in Parliament.

Its framework was also explained by the prime minister in his May 9 speech earlier this year in conjunction with Pakatan Harapan’s one year in government.

The Shared Prosperity Vision will encompass the 12th and 13th Malaysia Plans, spanning 10 years from 2021 to 2031.

Comment: Not sure how the government is going to prioritise the TVET sector. As Tun M mentioned that if budget is insufficient for all, then it has to be channeled to the priority sectors. So I would assume that more funds are to be allocated to the sector, such as more funds to PTPK to loan students, especially from the B40, which are mainly from rural areas & also the urban poor. Hopefully this would then enhance this group’s earning capability and reduce the income gap.

For the benefit/knowledge of those outside TVET industry, insufficient PTPK loan in the past 1-2 years has caused many students (esp B40 group) that is interested to pursue
TVET courses unable to continue their studies at private & government TVET institutions.

This has an economic & social impact:


1. Economic
Effect on TVET institutions – With the limited quota provided to TVET institutions, especially the private ones, many has folded up or
ready for sale as they couldn’t sustain the business due to over-reliance on loan to recruit students.

Effect on TVET trainers & supporting staffs – These trainers who have SKM in their field and
Vocational Training Operation (especially those that do not have industry experience but fresh from TVET institutions like CIAST) would probably be now jobless or work in non-related field that pays them nothing more than a SPM school leaver’s qualification.

Effect on students – As the students who may not even have SPM or poor SPM results, they have no where to upgrade themselves or learn a skills to uplift their economic livelihood.

2. Social
Since the students are not able to further their studies, they may have high probability of being unemployed or worse still, involved in petty crimes, become Mat Rempit, drug addicts, gangsterism and other illegal activities.

Sijil Kemahiran Malaysia (SKM) diterima di industri dan luar negeri ke?

Contoh SKM bidang VTO (I-031-3:2014) – Pegawai Latihan Vokasional – WAJIB untuk Pegawai Penilai (PP)

Apakah faedah Persijilan Kemahiran Malaysia?

1. Persijilan Kemahiran diiktiraf oleh industri di Malaysia
Realitinya, tidak lagi semua industri tetapi pihak Jabatan Pembangunan Kemahiran (JPK) bersama Industrial Lead Body (ILB) memang sentiasa berusaha ke arah itu.

Tetapi untuk sesetengah industri seperti bengkel servis kenderaan, Rang Undang-Undang (RUU) Perkhidmatan Penyelenggaraan dan Pembaikan Kenderaan Motor telah dibentangkan di Dewan Rakyat, Mac 2018 di mana antara lain bakal mewajibkan pengusaha memiliki lesen khas mengendalikan perniagaan itu.

Begitu juga untuk sektor perkhidmatan kecantikan dan dandanan rambut, sesetengah pihak berkuasa tempatan seperti MPAJ & MPS dikatakan mensyaratkan pengusaha atau pekerjanya perlu ada Sijil Kemahiran Malaysia (SKM) untuk memohon lesen premis.

Difahamkan juga sektor air akan mewajibkan sesetengah pekerja dalam bidang tertentu memiliki Sijil Kemahiran Malaysia menjelang 2020.

2. Persijilan Kemahiran Malaysia menyediakan suatu laluan kerjaya dan pembangunan diri yang menarik setanding dengan laluan kerjaya berasaskan kelayakan akademik.
Ini dah terbukti dengan kebolehpasaran graduan TVET negara melonjak lebih 90% manakala Jabatan Perangkaan Malaysia melaporkan pada suku pertama 2019, negara merekodkan seramai 516,600 penganggur dimana seramai 238,286 penganggur termasuk 174,327 siswazah, mendaftar sebagai pencari kerja aktif dengan JobsMalaysia di bawah Jabatan Tenaga Kerja (JTK) Semenanjung.

3. Persijilan Kemahiran Malaysia berupaya melahirkan pekerja mahir yang terlatih dan berkelayakan untuk mempertingkatkan daya saing industri tempatan di pasaran dunia.
Ia telah terbukti bahawa Sijil Kemahiran Malaysia kita ni memang laku dan jauh lebih bernilai dari sijil-sijil lain, tak kira tempatan ke luar negeri seperti UK.

Sudah banyak kes di mana Kedutaan Negara Asing di Malaysia cuma menyokong (endorse) Sijil Kemahiran Malaysia (SKM), Diploma Kemahiran Malaysia (DKM) & Diploma Lanjutan Kemahiran Malaysia (DLKM) tetapi tidak sijil-sijil kemahiran/akademik lain, walaupun ia mungkin datang dari UK, Australia atau Germany, kecuali ia adalah dari badan professional yang dikenali dunia (seperti ACCA, CIBTAC, CIDESCO, TWI dsbgnya).


Apakah kepentingan ini? Jika anda ingin bekerja dalam industri kemahiran di Dubai, Australia, China ke mana-mana di luar Malaysia, majikan dan kedutaan rata-ratanya hanya mengiktiraf SKM/DKM/DLKM. Tak percaya? Cuba pergi tanya pegawai di Kedutaan Asing ataupun JPK.

Jadi, jelas bahawa nilai SKM/DKM/DLKM ini amat besar, cuma ramai yang masih tidak tahu menghargainya.

TVET, a stepchild no more

A framework has been proposed to address the long-standing problems of our TVET system

A NEW framework for technical and vocational training is in the pipelines.

If approved, the proposal will see a more streamlined, effective, and industry-relevant, Technical and Vocational Education Training (TVET) system.

Proposed by the National TVET Movement to the Economic Planning Unit last month, the framework aims to address the country’s ailing TVET system.

“Our focus is on upper secondary school students. We want to create a TVET champion.

“We want students to have better access to choices between academics and something more hands-on like TVET. This is what’s happening in other countries,” said Ahmad Tajudin, who recently retired as the Education Ministry deputy director-general.

Among those part of the Movement are the Federation of Human Resources Ministry’s Department of Skills Development (JPK) Accredited Centres (FeMac), National Council of Professors, and the National Parent-Teacher Associations’ Vocational and Technical Consultative Council.

For too long, TVET has been the “troubled stepchild” of the education system, he said.

This framework tackles long-standing problems like the:

> Overlapping of programmes and certifications;

> Misguided focus on post-secondary TVET students instead of upper secondary students;

> Existence of multiple accreditation bodies and agencies implementing TVET;

> High operations cost resulting from the many ministries involved;

> Weak policies; and

> Private TVET providers being treated as competitors.

“All TVET institutions should be streamlined, rationalised, and consolidated, under the Education Ministry.

“This ensures that teachers and trainers are better taken care of under one scheme of service. And, there won’t be a need to close down any institutions if all facilities and resources are under one roof,” he said, adding that it would also be more cost effective for the Government while ensuring smoother communication between the industry and institutions.

Other reforms proposed by the Movement include:

> Reducing existing certifications to an important few;

> Having a single accreditation body for TVET;

> Establishing two educational pathways for students to choose from;

> Allowing industries to take the lead;

> Enhancing TVET apprenticeship programmes based on models from other developed countries; and

> Formulating policies and legislations to enhance careers in TVET.

Greater emphasis, and an overview, of TVET implementation is needed, Ahmad Tajudin said.

There should be training provisions to facilitate contributions from private TVET providers, and there must be closer collaboration between the industry and these providers.

“Our TVET system needs stronger institutional coordination, and greater transparency among the multiple public agencies.

“TVET restructuring is a small part of a holistic solution, but it’s a start to the reform,” he said, adding that strong political will from the Government was crucial to ensure the country’s TVET success.

Education Minister Dr Maszlee Malik said the Government would continue enhancing the capabilities of TVET institutions and systems to remain competitive and meet industry demands.

Speaking during his annual new year address in Serdang on Monday, he said the ministry would implement a harmonised accreditation and quality assurance system to enable student mobility in TVET institutions, which includes the Malaysian Technical University Network (MTUN).

MTUN, he said, should move in the direction of Fachhochschule – Germany’s tertiary education institution specialising in topical areas.

MTUN, he added, shouldn’t be evaluated solely based on publications, but also on the ability of the graduates produced to solve technical issues.

He said the ministry plans to increase the quality and delivery of TVET by enabling the industry to lead the curriculum development, avoid overlapping of programmes and resources, improve cost effectiveness, and widen the funding to increase enrolment.

He said the ministry was also in the midst of addressing recognition issues involving controversial vocational colleges.

He assured polytechnics and community colleges that they wouldn’t be sidelined in the reform process.

“To ensure the employability of our graduates, closer collaboration between these institutions and the industry – especially with the big players – will be prioritised,” he said, adding that these were part of the ministry’s efforts in making sure that TVET, polytechnics, vocational colleges, and community colleges, are no longer seen as second choice options.

In June last year, Dr Maszlee appointed Lembah Pantai MP Nurul Izzah Anwar to chair a special TVET task force.

The duties of the task force, said Dr Maszlee, was to conduct research across all ministries that provide TVET education and training, and recommend how the country’s TVET system can be improved. This includes a review of TVET education and training laws, and the possibility of a TVET commission.

However, the TVET industry was left reeling following Nurul Izzah’s resignation as PKR vice president on Dec 17, and her decision to no longer serve the federal government in any capacity.

“We’ll continue advocating for a sustainable and effective TVET implementation,” said Ahmad Tajudin.

Comment: It’s good that the Ministry has identified the weaknesses & looking to implement the reforms (personally, I see that our TVET sector would soar to much greater heights compared to now, if reforms are implemented effectively & correctly).

But I have a doubt whether they would reform this particular weakness – Private TVET providers being treated as competitors.

It seems that there are plans to gradually “KILL” the private TVET providers based on their proposed plans (hearsay, so take it with a pinch of salt).


These include but not limited to:

1) Closing all TVET providers that are 2 stars and below after the impending 2019 star rating process (as early as March 2019). It generally affects the smaller private TVET providers who has very limited resources (manpower & finances) vs the public TVET institutions.
2) Closing/revoke Vocational Training Operation (VTO) programme of any private TVET institutions that has does not meet a min of 4 stars and above for that particular programme. Eventually, it would be just offered by the multiple satellite campuses of CIAST, nationwide,
3) Restrict the organising of the JPK’s various induction courses (PP-PPD-PPB, PP-PPT, PPL) to only  CIAST satellite campuses, nationwide.
4) and BEYOND – perhaps you can comment if you think what they are doing/planning to do is gonna KILL the private TVET providers.
