TNB Integrated Learning Solution – ILSAS, has once again earned well-deserved recognition in the educational landscape of Malaysia. The institution has clinched the prestigious Malaysia Education & TVET Awards (META) 2023 in the “Malaysia’s Best Institution for Human Resource Reskilling” category, marking a remarkable achievement for its ongoing commitment to education and workforce development. This accolade stands as a testament to the profound success of the TNB Reskilling Malaysia (TRM) programme; a strategic initiative designed to address the unique challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic and provide essential job matching services and complementary skills training to both Malaysian job seekers and employers.

TRM’s impact has been profound and far-reaching, serving as a lifeline for many in the wake of the pandemic. It has facilitated job placements for more than 11,000 individuals who were affected by the economic repercussions of the pandemic. This is a substantial number, demonstrating the programme’s efficacy in mitigating unemployment and supporting economic recovery. Beyond job placements, TRM has empowered over 8,000 participants to elevate their competencies in novel professional domains, marking a significant stride in individual skill development.

Siti Sarah Johana Mohd Said, the Managing Director of ILSAS, received the award for the second consecutive year. Her gratitude resonated through her acceptance speech as she acknowledged the warm reception of the TRM programme by the Malaysian public. Siti Sarah Johana emphasised how TRM exceeded its initial targets, going above and beyond to foster entrepreneurship, skill development, and the improvement of livelihoods for countless Malaysians. Her words underscored ILSAS’s unwavering dedication to innovation and its transformative role in the Technical and Vocational Education Training (TVET) labour market in Malaysia. TRM, under her leadership, has become an essential agent of change, mitigating the pandemic’s impact and reducing unemployment rates.

In 2023, TRM has evolved and expanded its horizons to cater to the dynamic needs of the job market. One of the notable developments is the extension of the course duration, which allows for more comprehensive skill acquisition. The programme’s content has been updated to align with contemporary industry demands, ensuring that participants are equipped with relevant and marketable skills. Furthermore, TRM has introduced self-paced learning, catering to diverse learning styles and enabling individuals to tailor their educational journey to their unique needs.

Business coaching has been incorporated into the programme, recognising the importance of not only technical skills but also the ability to navigate the professional landscape effectively. Practical training in cutting-edge technology skills such as virtual reality (VR), drones, and AMI smart metres is now a central component of TRM, reflecting the growing importance of technology in the job market. This emphasis on technological skills positions programme participants for success in emerging industries and equips them to excel in a rapidly digitising world.

TRM’s diversification into flagship programmes signifies its adaptability and responsiveness to the ever-evolving employment landscape. These flagship programmes are a strategic move to cultivate specialised skills that cater to specific industry needs, further enhancing the employability of participants. Moreover, TRM is now actively supporting the burgeoning field of digital entrepreneurship in Malaysia, recognising the importance of nurturing home grown businesses and promoting economic resilience. By doing so, the programme is not only creating job seekers but also job creators, fostering a culture of entrepreneurship.

In conclusion, TNB Reskilling Malaysia (TRM) continues to be an indispensable initiative that supports Malaysians in their pursuit of employment and skill development. Its multi-faceted approach, including updated content, self-paced learning, business coaching, and practical technology training, is keeping pace with the evolving needs of the job market. TRM’s emphasis on flagship programmes and its commitment to digital entrepreneurship are laying the foundation for a more resilient and innovative workforce in Malaysia. The programme’s ongoing success, highlighted by the META 2023 award, is a testament to ILSAS’s dedication to educational innovation and its instrumental role in transforming the Malaysian TVET labour market.
