Do you know that Malaysian secondary students are now facing not one, not two, but three major threats when it comes to landing a job in the future? Teenagers or young adults usually do not have the specific set of soft skills that are desired by all employers. Without these top 2 soft skills, they are losing a great chance of acing their job interview when they come out to work.
Threat #1: The Malaysian Ministry of Education has launched its KBAT programme
The KBAT programme is a new initiative introduced by the Ministry of Education to test and grade your children on their higher-order thinking skills (also known as HOTS). Many students have failed this section because they were not fully taught in schools.
Threat #2: The Unemployment Rate Is Increasing Day By Day
It’s getting more and more difficult for fresh graduates to land a job. With AI technology aiming to take over up to 60% of jobs, students have to do more than just ace their academic exams, they MUST have adequate self-development and higher capabilities as well.
Threat #3: China’s Superb Reform And Open Policy
Over the last couple of years since the introduction of their reform and open policy, China is improving day by day. With their prestigious outreach developmental programmes, many citizens of China are travelling over to Malaysia. The lack of competitive abilities in Malaysians has led to them losing their jobs.
How to overcome these threats?
Times have changed. It’s not enough to know how to ace exams anymore – nowadays the world desperately needs students with:
- Critical thinking skills
- Problem-solving skills
Critical thinking skills are extremely important. They can help you make better decisions, process information effectively, and express yourself better. Problem-solving skills, on the other hand, are well sought-after in today’s corporate environment. This is because any problems encountered can be solved in a very systematic and time-saving way.
This worrying situation doesn’t seem to be ending anytime soon. With that in mind, D English Link is conducting a self-development holiday camp for all Malaysian secondary students aged between 15 – 17 years of age in order to hone these skills in hopes that they can overcome these obstacles.
