Colleges and Universities
We work with a number of colleges and universities in Malaysia to assist with upskilling of students to prepare them for the workplace. To date we have trained over 1,000 students and assisted them with employment.
There are three main thrusts to our work:
1. Graduate Employability
We are running our Certified IP Associate (CIPA) and Certified IP Engineer (CIPE) under a number of initiatives for upskilling of fresh graduates, including the GEMS2.0 and 3P programs. This provides a number of benefits to the graduates.
The long term plan for sustainability is to embed our competence-based content and assessment into university and college curriculum. We have submitted programs to the Malaysian Qualifications Agency (MQA) for equivalency status to assist with this. The Certified IP Associate program has already been awarded 4 credits which makes it easy to embed into existing courses. MQA is the agency appointed to implement the Malaysian Qualifications Framework (MQF) as a basis for quality assurance of higher education and as the reference point for the criteria and standards for national qualifications.
3. SkilPro Capability Centres
The SkilPro Capability Centres are lab ecosystems designed as a platform for both teaching and research. They come as a package with all the hardware and software, plus the competence-based training. Currently we have four centres:
These have been developed to assist colleges and universities in building their capabilities in “cutting edge” technologies. For more information please check out our page here.
As an example, shown is the structure of the SkilPro capability centre for 4G/LTE
If you would like further information on any of the SkilPro Capability Centres please contact us at email@example.com.
In addition, we provide the following services to ensure that the capability centres are effectively utilised for R&D, Project assignment work and teaching purposes. Staff and students will become competent in the particular technologies as well as develop skills in analysis and problem solving in a test environment.
In a collaborative effort with TalentCorp, we are pleased to offer Malaysian companies free training for fresh graduates hired in a Technical role (employed since 11/2013 onwards). This is part of the GEMS2.0 initiative and is aimed at supporting companies that are active in the recruitment of fresh graduates by reducing on-boarding costs.
