Malaysia takes the lead in cutting unemployment Tuesday, 18 Jul 2017 Read more at - lead-in-cutting-unemployment-training-programme-sl1m-successfully- helps-120000-gr/#V328B2WcxRj1R6b4.99 by jessie lim Friendly visit: Norashikin (left) met up with Malaysian ambassador to Netherlands Datuk Ahmad Nazri Yusof during her visit to The Hague for the forum. IT is always great news when Malaysia gets noticed – from being a rich cultural melting pot to its many attractions befitting a popular tourist destination. Now, we can proudly say that our country is also recognised for its successful implementation of the 1Malaysia Training Scheme, better known as Skim Latihan 1Malaysia (SL1M). Just last month, the SL1M secretariat was invited by the United Nations to represent Malaysia at the United Nations Public Service Forum 2017 (UNPSF2017) held at The Hague, Netherlands. The forum was to discuss public administration innovations in key Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) as countries mobilise efforts in a bid to end poverty, fight inequalities and tackle climate change by 2030. Joining industry experts on the big stage was SL1M secretariat head Norashikin Ismail who presented the Government’s initiatives in addressing unemployment issues in Malaysia, especially among young job seekers. image: - takes-the-lead-in-cutting-unemployment-training-programme-sl1m- successfully-helps-120000- gr/~/media/995ed6bdff9f4e93831d3795869a7050.ashx?h=400&w=600

Sharing ideas: The UNPSF2017, which took place at The Hague, Netherlands, was held to discuss public administration innovations in key Sustainable Development Goals. She explained the aim of SL1M, and its success in assisting over 120,000 graduates in securing jobs nationwide, under the “Job Creation and Prosperity” category, which was one among eight topics addressed at the forum. It highlighted the importance of employment to help people escape poverty, and empower women and other vulnerable groups in enhancing their well-being through innovative approaches taken by governments in promoting job creation, decent work and prosperity.As a result, Norashikin stated that delegates of the different countries approached her to find out more about SL1M.“Many were also surprised to learn that SL1M is fully sponsored and engineered by the private sector.“To them, the public and private sectors are two very separate entities, and it’s difficult to achieve collaboration between the two,” she revealed, adding that interested parties were invited to Malaysia to learn more about SL1M. She added that last year, she received a call from Ireland’s ambassador who intended to send a team of professors from Dublin to study SL1M.“I am proud, not only because we were selected to showcase SL1M on a global platform, but because we are now recognised by many countries for our efforts,” said Norashikin during a media session held at the Economic Planning Unit (EPU) at the Prime Minister’s Department, Putrajaya.

"Before using Course Hero my grade was at 78%. By the end of the semester my grade was at 90%. I could not have done it without all the class material I found."

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
