Malaysia Company Offers Free Up-skilling Training Program For Youths
Successfully trained first batch of graduates as of March 2021 with 350 candidates and on planned to create 5,000 job opportunities for Malaysians
With the uncertainty over Covid-19 still looming and impacting global economies, one Malaysian company steps in to provide free training program to elevate and recharge Malaysia’s workforce and economy again.
Manforce Group Berhad, one of the leading foreign worker solutions providers in Malaysia introduces Malaysians Development Uplift Programme (“MDUP”) back in February 2020. The 6-months program’s goal is to empower young Malaysians with the necessary skills of learning, life and work; enhancing sustainable growth with skilled workforce through basic industrial training.
Together with its partners such as manufacturing companies Maxter Glove, Panasonic, George Kent, students will be able to secure employment upon their graduation of this 6-months programme.
Manforce Group sponsored individuals to participate in a 6-months practical training course complete with allowances, accommodations and a certificate of completion of the training course fully certified by School of Professional and Continuing Education (UTMSPACE) and ProCel Faculty Economy and Business UNIMAS and targets youth from aged 18 to 30 who lacked the financial support, unemployed and school leavers mainly in the B40 category.
“The freeze intake of migrant workers since early 2020 somewhat, beneficial to Malaysia as a whole, as it reduces the number of foreign workers in our country and gives locals the priority in securing employment. The large presence of foreign workers in the country will make it difficult for locals, especially youths, to get employed. Hence, we came up with MDUP as the appropriate solution to encourage Malaysian companies to stronghold the local workforce and help the growth of the country’s economy,” said Dato’ Paul Wong Boon Ming, Group Managing Director of Manforce Group Berhad.
Since the inception of the program back in February 2020, Manforce Group has trained more than 70 graduates from MDUP with 70% of the graduates deciding to kickstart career in manufacturing companies and majority (63%) of the candidates are from East Coast (Kelantan, Terengganu and Pahang)
With the current Covid-19 cases still high in Malaysia, classroom training and interviews are conducted digitally through channels such as Zoom. Upon graduation, graduates are then transferred to the actual workplace.
