Firstly we would like to congratulate Alya Cafe at Langkawi Police Academy for being approved by Jabatan Pembangunan Kemahiran (JPK) to become another NDTS center (National Dual Training System). The coaches as approved by JPK are Aziz Ahmad, Kamarulzaman Salleh and Ahmad Tarmizi Zakaria. And the courses applied and approved are Food & Beverage Level 1&2, Culinary Arts Level 1&2.
Therefore it completes the circle of collaboration requested from JPK between DLanguage STUDIO (DLS) as NDTS Training center and all approved NDTS industry centers. In this dual system, DLS will be working with the following travel agency, hotel and restaurant : Rebak Island Resort, Best Star Five Resort (now Adina drive-in motel), The Lanai, Langkawi Lovely Holiday, DLS STUDIO Apartment and Alya Cafe.
We hope there will be new SKM apprenticeship from July 2011 sponsored by the government. Apprentices will be nominated and registered via the NDTS industry centers. In doing so, the industry centers may appoint DLS as their NDTS Training Center (meaning for theory classes), whereas the practical sessions for the apprentices must be carried out at the industry centers. View schedule and apprenticeship hours.
Who are the managers of the NDTS industry centers?
- Rebak Island Resort – Elia Adura Sahari
- Best Star Five Resort – Wan Kamariah Yahaya
- The Lanai – Tengku Omar Hussein
- Langkawi Lovely Holiday – Mohd Syafiq Abdullah
- DLS STUDIO Apartment – Raizam Tamin
- Alya Cafe – Kamarulzaman Salleh.
What are their duties? To make sure the coaches do their job accordingly, check apprentice logbooks, and to make sure the apprentices are given maximum exposure to the skills they are learning. The duty of a coach is to train (ie coach) the apprentices, using tasks lists provided by JPK and sign apprentice logbooks. The tasks lists are called NOSS (National Occupational Skill Standard)
NDTS industry managers will also need to submit monthly report to JPK (online) on the apprentices progress, and this procedure will be assisted by DLanguage STUDIO being their training partner. The monthly report is important as it determines the speed of allowance provision to the apprentices, NDTS Industry Centers and NDTS Training Center. In other words, No Report No Money!!
Managers who have not submitted coaches resume are urged to do so immediately, as these documents will need to be sent to CIAST (Centre for Instructor & Advanced Skill Training) for further recognition and official coach appointment. For coaches who have not undergone Industry Coach training, please be patient.. as we will now request for JPK to conduct the course in Langkawi. This will be a 5-Day training course. We hope that coaches will find their means and ways to be present when invited to this course, so as to be fully prepared on how to train skill workers according to the standard set by JPK
