In a monumental stride towards advancing educational opportunities for Malaysia’s youth, ReSkills is thrilled to announce the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with Majlis Belia Malaysia (MBM) on 21 November 2023. This groundbreaking partnership, further strengthened by the support of the Global Reskilling Movement (GRM), represents a commitment to transforming the educational landscape and fostering a generation of skilled and competitive individuals.
The MOU, signed by Mr. Jin Tan, CEO of ReSkills, and Mohd Izzat Afifi Hj Abdul Hamid, President of Majlis Belia Malaysia, and witnessed by the Guest of Honor, YB Manndzri Hj. Nasib, CBO of ReSkills, Mr. Ken Lim, and Secretary General of Majlis Belia Malaysia, Mr. Hasnul, in ReSkills Hub, Damansara Perdana, have marked a historic collaboration aimed at meeting the escalating demand for continuous learning in today’s fast-paced job market.
As part of the Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), Global Reskilling Movement (GRM), CSR program initiated by ReSkills, the collaboration with MBM will provide Malaysia’s youth community with complimentary access to the premium features of the ReSkills online learning platform. This strategic support, backed by the Global Reskilling Movement, seeks to eliminate financial barriers, democratizing education and granting access to a plethora of learning resources spanning various subjects and skills.
The partnership between ReSkills and MBM aspires to equip Malaysia’s youth with a diverse skill set, going beyond traditional education.
“Online learning is the future of education, we need to accept the changes and how these technologies can make our lives easier. In today’s world, only online can reach millions of people at the same time. Physical school is good, there is no doubt about it. But we need to think about how we can spread the latest industry knowledge faster and to more people in a very short period of time. And now ReSkills together with MBM, we believe we can empower the Malaysia youth with the skills set they need for their career.” — Jin Tan (CEO of ReSkills)
“Artificial Intelligence starting to replaced human jobs and our Malaysia future leaders need to equip themselves with more skills. Today, thanks to ReSkills, we can now bring more learning opportunities to our Malaysia Youth with just USD1 per month, and they can have the access into a few thousands of learning content and prepare themselves for the crucial future job market.” — Mohd Izzat Afifi (President of Majlis Belia Malaysia)
By offering complimentary premium learning access, the initiative aims to empower the younger generation with the adaptability and innovation necessary to thrive in the competitive job market.
While the MOU is a locally-focused collaboration, the support of the Global Reskilling Movement adds a global perspective to the initiative. This collaboration not only contributes to the development of a knowledge-driven economy in Malaysia but also aligns with global trends, ensuring that the youth are well-prepared for international opportunities.
The MOU signing ceremony was witnessed by YB Manndzri Hj. Nasib, CBO of ReSkills, Mr. Ken Lim and Secretary General of Majlis Belia Malaysia, Mr. Hasnul, adding a significant moment to the event. Their presence underlines the importance of this collaboration in the broader context of societal development and empowerment.
The signing ceremony symbolizes a joint commitment to lifelong learning, with the Global Reskilling Movement enhancing the scope of this commitment. The collaboration aims to inspire a passion for continuous learning, enabling the youth to navigate the challenges of emerging industries and technologies.
In the spirit of collaboration and empowerment, ReSkills, Majlis Belia Malaysia, and the Global Reskilling Movement are set to make a lasting impact on the educational landscape of Malaysia. The complimentary premium learning access, backed by the GRM, is a powerful tool in fostering a generation of skilled, adaptable individuals ready to lead Malaysia into a bright and innovative future. Together, let us embark on this transformative journey of knowledge, growth, and global reskilling.
