Petikan Akhbar JTM

Jabatan Tenaga Manusia (JTM), dahulunya dikenali sebagai Jabatan Tenaga Rakyat (JTR) telah ditubuhkan pada tahun 1967. Pertukaran nama berkenaan adalah disebabkan oleh fungsinya yang difokuskan kepada aktiviti program latihan kemahiran sahaja. Pertukaran nama ini berlaku pada awal tahun 2000. Diawal penubuhan JTR, ia berfungsi sebagai pusat melatih tenaga mahir untuk pasaran industri tempatan, mengumpul maklumat buruh, dan menempatkan pencari-pencari pekerjaan disektor swasta. Pada ketika ini JTM telah dan akan melahirkan tenaga mahir negara dari peringkat sijil latihan hinggalah Diploma Lanjutan dalam pelbagai bidang kursus kemahiran. Oleh kerana dengan perubahan teknologi yang begitu pesat dan keperluan tenaga kerja mahir yang mendesak, maka JTM telah menubuhkan beberapa institusi latihan diseluruh negara.

    When it comes to the education system in Malaysia, there is the Ministry of Education which oversees all primary and high school studies and then there is the Ministry of Higher Education which looks after Colleges, Universities, and other higher learning institutions then there is the Ministry of Human Resources that is in charge of TVET, which is often neglected.

    TVET or Technical Vocational Education and Training is usually associated with students who can’t progress academically, dropouts, or those who failed SPM. Courses that are linked to TVET are automotive mechanics, hairstylists, and other skills-related jobs, which is not entirely true. As of today, this has completely changed, now TVET courses include IR4.0, robotics, logistics, transportation, culinary, and many other highly sought-after careers.

    The move will shine new light on graduates who enter the working world and will also at the same give conviction for those who seek to embark on learning skills in TVET. Malaysia is suffering deeply in talent resources in areas of mechanical, manufacturing, technical and automotive industry, despite these being modernised and highly digital with high paying salaries, many youths (or their parents) are reluctant to join due to perception.

    However, in developed nations like Germany and US, skilled workers in these fields are much sought after with some earning higher salaries than doctors.
