“WE ARE CREATING THE CHANGE WE WANT TO SEE FOR TOMORROW’S FUTURE. WE NEED TO RE-IMAGINE SOLUTIONS OF UNEMPLOYMENT WITH SKILLS DEVELOPMENT AND THIS IS WHAT DUAL TVET IS ABOUT,”
~ Yang Berhormat Siti Rozaimeriyanty binti Dato Seri Laila Jasa Haji Abdul Rahman, Legislative Council member & Co-Chairperson of the Manpower Industry Steering Committee in Construction (MISCC). Quoted during the Dual TVET Programme launch ceremony at Musyawarah Hall, International Convention Centre on the 25th July 2021.
The Dual TVET Programme is not just about promoting vocational or technical jobs, it is meant to send a powerful message to the people in different occupations and industries and across all learning ages that we now need to add mastery of skills into our range of capabilities and deviate the traditionally emphasised academic learning and qualifications. The programme will equip youth with skills that will provide them access to the world of work and employment opportunities.
The Dual TVET Programme of HNTec in Construction and Draughting is a two-year programme where the students are trained both by IBTE (for institutional-based training) and by the industry (for the on-the job training). The Dual TVET students will spend 25 per cent with the industry to gain hands-on experience and 75 per cent in the institution.
Out of the160 students who applied, 96 were eligible to enroll for the July 2021 intake.
