Last Update: 15/10/2019
KANGAR, Oct 15 -- Arau Community College (KKA), a public institution of higher learning focusing on Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) programme, has successfully produced over 150 entrepreneurs in the state since 2016.
Its director, Norasmah Saad, said students at KKA are being guided and taught various skills to become job creators, including product creation, marketing technology, financial management and other skills needed to venture into entrepreneurship.
“All this while, graduates of other institutions would usually hope to secure a job upon graduation, but it’s not the case at KKA. Our graduates are trained to create jobs,” she told Bernama after the closing ceremony of Inspirasi Alumni@KKA programme here Monday.
The programme featured four KKA alumni entrepreneurs as moderators, namely Ku Muhamad Faiss Ku Mansor from CN Bina Sejahtera Sdn Bhd, Mohd Faiz Mohd Ayub of Alor Ganding Enterprise, Nik Rosaida Abd Rahmah of Kasyaf Bina Sdn Bhd, and Muhammad Firdaus Abdul Rahman of Cybertrone Computer Centre.
Norasmah said the tough competition in today’s job market was the main factor for the emphasis given to skill training and entrepreneurship.
As a TVET institution, KKA has been promoting education and training in skill areas to Sijil Pelajaran Malaysia (SPM) holders to become skilled manpower needed in facing the fourth industrial revolution, she said.
For the record, KKA’s alumni marketability for the year 2018 was recorded at 99.7 per cent.
