BENTONG: A total of 50,000 places have been allocated for Felda’s youths to further their studies in technical and vocational education and training (TVET).

Deputy prime minister Ahmad Zahid Hamidi, who is also National TVET Council Committee chairman, said these places were available at more than 1,300 TVET institutions.

The places will be offered to the second to fifth generations of Felda settlers, with the courses provided in line with the country’s employment requirements.

Zahid said the training will no longer follow “conventional courses” but meet the requirements of companies looking for skilled workers.

“For example, we want to be involved in resorts, travel and tours, insurance or other areas.

“The courses provided would be in line with current market requirements,” he said when opening the MYFutureJobs Career Carnival at Felda Chemomoi here today.

Present were human resources minister V Sivakumar, Pahang menteri besar Wan Rosdy Wan Ismail, Felda chairman Ahmad Shabery Cheek and Umno Women and Family Affairs Council (Hawa) chairman Shahrizat Abdul Jalil.

Zahid, who is also rural and regional development minister, said discussions would be held with Mara and the Human Resources Development Corporation on the courses offered.

He said Hawa, as an NGO under Umno, had also been roped in to give its input as to the best courses and training for women and Felda youths. - FMT
