A New Approach to Develop and Retain Talent.
The successful German “Dual Vocational Training System” is making its way into Malaysia. The Malaysian-German Chamber (MGCC) – in cooperation with the Department of Skills Development, Ministry of Human Resources (MOHR), the German-Malaysian Institute (GMI) and a good number of German and Malaysian companies - is set to create a highly-qualified dual training program in the fields of ‘Industrial Management’ and ‘Transport and Logistics Management’ starting in the 2nd Quarter of 2014.
Companies joining the program have the opportunity to create a pool of qualified professionals with practical skills and competencies paired with sound theoretical knowledge. Thus, the private sector will be able to gain leverage on industry-specific skills and qualifications acquired mainly in a corporate environment and actual and genuine commercial processes. Participation in the program will also reduce recruitment and settling-in cost as well as make it easier for companies to retain their talents through the identification of the trainees with the company, its products and strategies.
The program consists of 70 - 75% practical training at the company and 25 – 30% theoretical training at the training school, the German-Malaysian Institute (GMI). This program enables young Malaysians to receive a 3-years-training in a company and obtain an Advanced Skills Diploma (DLKM / Level 5 NOSS) as well as a German Chamber (AHK) Certificate as the basis of excellent carrier development opportunities.
