TAFE students get Aussie training chance

Previously, there is an issue of whether TAFE programs are LAN (MQA) accredited. Its website at www.tafeseremban.edu.my states that its diploma programmes are LAN accredited.

But frankly speaking, this move by Samy is excellent. More Indians are looking beyond Malaysia due to the rampant discrimination in the education and employment sectors. Thus, by offering a job offer (training/attachment) overseas, it hugely increases the chance for global employment and relocation to another country. Maybe, just maybe, Samy realises that no point begging the government any more? Might as well do something useful and try gain some forgiveness from the community.

My knowledge in TAFE is purely based on what others mentioned, and none of it sounds good. Only negative news. Please comment if you have any good things to say.

Aussie training offer for Tafe students

KUALA LUMPUR: Tafe College hopes to enrol at least 500 of its students in a construction training programme which promises lucrative jobs abroad. College founder and chairman Datuk Seri S. Samy Vellu said the programme offered good opportunity for students.

He was speaking after witnessing the signing of a memorandum of understanding between the college and Australia’s largest property development and contracting group Leighton International Ltd.

Samy Vellu said the Australian company had won contracts all over the world and needed trained personnel at mid-professional level. He added that upon completion of their three months’ training, the students would be recruited to work in countries where the company had operations. The programme is open to all undergraduates of Tafe College studying engineering, quantity surveying, building and construction-related disciplines.

Among those present at the ceremony were Tafe chief executive officer Tan Sri G. Vadiveloo, Leighton University programme director Thomas McGuire and Leighton International Ltd South East Asia executive general manager Ray Hodgson.
