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.

CONsultant or Consultant? My experience in the TVET sector

Just a quick sharing.

Yesterday, I had a meet up with another ex-public listed company, interested to purchase a TVET/JPK Accredited centre and/or MQA approved college license.

Guess what? A previous CONsultant tried to push them to purchase an MQA approved college license for RM5 million (not a hefty amount provided it has quite a few good programs & with KDN license with clean records). However, when pushed for more details from the potential buyer, the CONsultant started making stories that does not jive, hence the potential buyer has some reservations. When pushed further for process flow, the CONsultant came out with proposing them SKM/DKM via PPT method at a really hefty figure (5 digits/candidate!), without really probing what the customer actually wanted.

Now, I have this challenge to propose to the company on how they can achieve what they want but hey, it’s a good problem to have. If I can help them to achieve what they wanted, I’m sure I’ll be rewarded appropriately (not necessarily handomely though :-P)

Another case happened just last month. Another CONsultant proposed to sell his SLDN training centre (3-4 programs if not mistaken) for RM500K. Not sure what’s so valuable about the license but anyway he managed to convinced the potential buyer (to me, I wouldn’t even pay RM50K for that!). Unfortunately for the CONsultant, he made a very BIG MISTAKE, not sure it’s by choice or it was just plain silly. He asked to be paid in cash, no cheques, no bank accounts transfer, no receipts to be produced. WTF! Where on earth would a buyer agree to this kind of agreement? Even buying fruits for RM2 at fruit stalls along PLUS Hentian are given receipts!

And I really got a shock when a kursus induksi which cost only RM350 (maximum course fees chargeable, in case you are still unaware) was quoted at 6 times more! And because of the CONsultant’s greed (did not pay me & lied saying he wasn’t paid & fooled by the client – despite the client made the inflated payments to him), I had no choice but to go after the client directly for the payment. Well, you should know what’s the ending for the CONsultant.

Moral of the above 2 REAL LIFE stories:

1. Be knowledgable in your area if you really WANT to consult someone on that area, otherwise, be upfront & frank with your client that you’re working with an associate and NEVER pretend that you know everything despite KNOWING NOTHING about it as clients may sometimes be more knowledgable than you in that area if you’re not the EXPERT! You may not be lucky to be able to CON all the way, just like the Malay proverb:
Sepandai-pandai tupai melompat, akhirnya akan jatuh ke tanah juga

2. Be as transparent as possible with your clients, they will appreciate it.

3. GOD will reward you if you work hard & genuinely.

4. DON’t MESS UP with TVET Malaysia@I Smart Educare, we will go after what we’re supposed to get

5. Consultants (individuals or companies) that agrees everything that you requested as easy as ABC, especially without much thinking, should give you an ALARM! Don’t fall into the trap. Probe further on the Consultants past track records, check up for any info on the web (just Google the company or person, if not much web presences or many negative comments about the Consultant, that’s another ALARM!), testimonials and etc.

With that, I hope you will not be the next victim to such CONsultant!

TVET lecturers to go for industrial training for hands-on experience

Human Resources Minister M. Kulasegaran. Pic by NSTP/ASYRAF HAMZAH

KUALA LUMPUR: Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) lecturers will need to undergo industrial training after working hours to improve their skills.

Human Resources Minister M. Kulasegaran said this is part of the ministry’s efforts to boost and ensure that lecturers have the necessary skills to teach in their respective fields.

He said at the moment, some lecturers are lacking in terms of hands-on experience and expertise.

“I am puzzled that many of our lecturers do not have the specific skills needed and even if they have, many are academically-inclined and are not hands-on.

“I and (Human Resources) deputy minister have decided for these lecturers need to enroll for industrial training after their office hours (so they) can obtain the expertise required for them to teach well,” he said.

Kulasegaran said this during committee-stage wrapping-up speech on the Supply Bill 2019 for his ministry at the Dewan Rakyat today.

He said another issue was the logistical problem, which included the isolated and far-off locations of TVET institutions.

“As an example, I visited a technical institute at Padang Serai recently.

“The location is far from industrial areas and its (future) direction (future) is unclear. This is making it difficult for our children to study there.” Kulasegaran said.

Comment: It may be good idea but devil is in the details.
Does this only apply to public TVET institutions or including the private sector?
If it is also COMPULSORY for private TVET lecturers/instructors/assessors, who would bear the cost of industrial training?
And what if the TVET lecturers/instructors/assessors are already very experienced in the industry, say >10 years (that qualify them to be registered as Pakar Industri Negara) and then absorbed into the institutions? Would they need to go through this as well?
And the current process of becoming a certified assessor/skill trainer with a VTO qualification (Pegawai Penilai-PP) is making it hard for those with working experience/currently working as they are required to fulfill a 6 months full time internship – how many can afford to have a 6 months leave & not having income during that period? Worse, some employers don’t allow them, means they have to quit their current job & yet unsure of future job prospect?? Hope Jabatan Pembangunan Kemahiran (JPK) can really look into this matter.

Adakah PERUNDING (kursus induksi/SKM/VTO/pentauliahan pusat) anda bercakap benar??

If you don’t understand Malay well, can always email or call us for further explanation.
如果您不太了解马来语,可以随时发送电子邮件或致电我们进一步了解详情

Selama 18 tahun min berkecimpung dalam bidang latihan kemahiran ni (terutamanya yang berkaitan dengan JPK), macam-macam kes penipuan telah min jumpa/dengar.

Berikut adalah senarainya, tak terhad kepada ini sahaja (mungkin min lupa atau tak pernah dengar/jumpa tapi memang berlaku):

1. Sijil induksi PALSU – Sebelum ni, tahun 2000an, memang ada sesetengah penganjur yang hit & run, cetak sijil sendiri & JUAL kepada peserta (tak perlu ikuti kursus). Ia samalah seperti penjualan sijil/diploma/ijazah di universiti ataupun sijil cuti sakit. Namun, pihak Jabatan Pembangunan Kemahiran (JPK) telah mengambil langkah untuk membendung perkara ni dari berlanjutan dimana:
a) Penganjur tidak boleh cetak sijil sendiri lagi
b) Sijil telah ada ciri-ciri keselamatan (bukan setakat no siri sijil sahaja) – itu yang menyebabkan kekadang sijil dapat lambat sebab JPK kehabisan sijil & perlu tunggu stok dari Percetakan Nasional Malaysia

TIPS: Cari penganjur yang sudah lama (> 10 tahun kalau boleh) & kerap menganjur (lebih 6 kali setahun) kerana mereka tidak berani bertindak sebarangan & juga senantiasa mengikut perkembangan terkini. Ia juga mengurangkan kemungkinan penganjur menunda kursus induksi berkali-kali, ia berlaku terutamanya penganjur adalah baru dan tiada peserta berkumpulan besar.


2. Bukti PALSU – Ini kerap berlaku terutamanya dalam permohonan SKM secara PPT.

Ini mungkin salah sesetengah pemohon, ada yang sememangnya tahu dia tak layak tapi BAYAR perunding untuk kaodim, biasanya beribu-ribu.
Macam mana min tahu? Sebab ada kisah benar yang diceritakan oleh PPL-PPT (Pegawai Pengesah Luaran yang mengesahkan penilaian PP-PPT).
Cth: Ada seorang lelaki yang langsung tak pernah terlibat dengan kecantikan (cuma ada perniagaan dalam bidang ni) mewujudkan bukti palsu (gambar/invois/sijil) tapi telah digagalkan oleh PPL-PPT yang memegang amanah beliau. Apa yang menggeramkan min adalah dengar khabar setelah calon (melalui perunding) minta PPL-PPT ditukarkan, calon tu LULUS.
Geram betul, calon/perunding/PPL-PPT seperti nilah yang menjahanamkan kualiti SKM #^@*%

TIPS: Baca Panduan Permohonan SKM secara PPT @ ikuti kursus induksi PP-PPT – jadual disini supaya anda ada sedikit idea apa yang diperlukan dan sekiranya dah faham, mohon terus dengan JPK, cuma RM300/setahap.

Kebelakangan ni, ada perunding yang menjanjikan calon yang tiada pengalaman mengajar bidang kemahiran bahawa mereka layak mohon VTO secara PPT.  Agak-agaknya buat bukti PALSU lagi kot. Ni juga kisah benar,  dimana 2 juruteknik auto yang tidak pernah mengajar dijanjikan oleh perunding bahawa mereka boleh dapat VTO secara PPT!

Itu yang menyumbangkan kepada banyak isu pemegang sijil VTO yang tidak boleh mengajar dengan baik ataupun tak tahu sangat tentang WIM (bahan pengajaran bertulis). Min tak nafikan juga ada Pusat Bertauliah VTO tertentu yang bagi ‘lesen terbang’, sehinggakan ada beberapa PB VTO yang telah ditarik pentauliahannya dan menyebabkan permohonan PB VTO baru/penambahan program VTO ni dibekukan.
Untuk pengetahuan anda, pengalaman mengajar minima adalah 4 tahun kalau nak mohon VTO secara PPT

3. Penjualan WIM yang tidak menepati format ataupun jumlah jam yang sepatutnya
Ha, ni berlaku bukan sahaja dalam dunia latihan kemahiran tapi syarikat gergasi MNC pun ada juga yang melakukan kesalahan sebegini.

Biasa lihat ni kan?

Sudah banyak PB/pembeli yang kantoi dengan janji-janji manis individu/perunding bahawa WIM yang mereka beli memenuhi spesifikasi/format JPK tetapi sebenarnya tidak.
Antara isu yang kerap timbul adalah:
1. Format (tidak mengikut format terkini)
2. Jumlah jam yang tidak menepati kehendak NOSS (sudah banyak kes untuk ni, terutamanya untuk program yang ada kes khas seperti FB-024-2 (1200j dan bukannya 800j)
3. Jadual Pembahagian WIM yang tidak menggunakan ayat yang betul ataupun setara dengan WIM yang dibangunkan

TIPS: Suruh penjual emelkan sampel WIM lengkap (ada Kertas Penerangan/Kerja/Tugasan, Pelan Mengajar Teori/Amali, Kertas Penilaian Pengetahuan (KA)/Prestasi (PA), lepas tu cross check dengan format WIM terikini (2017)  dan juga NOSS.

Cukuplah setakat ni, kalau anda ada sebarang lagi kes penipuan/janji tidak serupa bikin yang nak dikongsi (tak kira pasal SKM, induksi, pentauliahan PB, WIM ke apa) supaya orang ramai lebih berhati-hati dan tidak tertipu,
sila emel ke ismarteducare@gmail.com, terima kasih.

Tips mencari perunding yang jujur:

1. Dah lama berkecimpung dalam bidang latihan kemahiran (ni pun tak menjamin apa-apa)
2. Cuba dapatkan testimoni/pengesyoran dari 2-3 pihak, kalau ada.
3. Dapatkan pandangan/nasihat dari 2-3 individu/syarikat.
4. Sekiranya masih rasa was-was, sila rujuk dengan min atau lebih baik, JPK di 03-88865589.
