KOTA KINABALU: The Human Resource Empowerment Programme (PMI) under the Youth Mind Transformation Camp is one of the initiative to motivate the young generation to venture entrepreneurship.
Deputy Minister of Resource Development and IT Technology, Datuk Hajah Hamisa Samat, said the move is to help youths to find occupation in the working world.
“The National Dual Training System (SLDN) is for youths outside the education system and it will be expanded to enable them to get a better job,” she said during the DUN Assembly.
She was responding to Charles O Pang (BN-Karamunting) on the government’s plan to open more opportunity to jobless graduates to find employment in the state.
Hamisa said the government will also set up a collaboration with local companies and hold a Kembara Kerjaya programme and Career Carnival in every district via the National Blue Ocean Strategy ( NBOS) and relevant agencies who are offering work opportunities.
She explained that the Department of Skills Development (JPK) has certified 98 centres in the state that are offering 262 programmes for the Malaysian Skills Certificate (SKM), Malaysian Skills Diploma (DKM), and Malaysian Advanced Skills Diploma (DLKM) for graduates to acquire skills with high marketability. –SayangSabah
