HRDF to fund skills training for youths
Skills training for youths from low-income families, in Malaysia, is to be funded by the Human Resource Development Bhd (HRDF). The HRDF is allocated a budget of RM30 Million to help fund and support youth skills training.
The reason behind the fund is due to a low collection of loan repayments to the Skills Development Fund Corporation (PTPK), which the Human Resource Minister, M. Kula Segara has highlighted as being a cause of concern.
Hence, to provide more opportunities for students to pursue their education at public and private technical and vocational training centres nationwide, HR Minister highlighted the purpose of the HRDF fund to act as a mechanism that would support this move.
