Our Success Stories

ViTrox Corporation Berhad

ViTrox Corporation Berhad had introduced its own in-house soft skills training programmes for its newly employed graduates, including NTEP participants. The training programme comprises ‘Effective Series’ (email writing skills and presentation skills), ‘Language Mastery Series’ (communication skills), and ‘Lean Series’ (problem-solving skills through Lean Tools and mindset cultivation), among others. This is based on the realisation that technical skills alone are not enough for the graduates, as soft skills are also viewed as equally important to deliver business excellence and drive competitive advantage.

Oppstar Technology Sdn. Bhd.

Oppstar Technology Sdn. Bhd. provided a series of Integrated Circuit (IC) Design Training classes for NTEP participants for a duration of 4-6 months. The training, which covers both theoretical and practical aspects, is conducted by the company in partnership with the Collaborative Microelectronic Design Excellence Center (CEDEC), USM. The IC Design classes include Introduction to IC Design, Digital Front End Design, Digital Back End Design, Analog Circuit Design, Custom Layout Design and Design for Test.

Under the NTEP programme, Oppstar Technology will monitor the trainees’ learning progress and identify their strengths before assigning them to the appropriate IC Design job scope, where they will be led by the company’s senior designers. Those who are ready will be immediately assigned to local and overseas projects under the guidance of the senior designers until they are able to work independently. Regular dialogue and shared learning sessions are also conducted to help expedite their IC Design learning process.

Micron Memory Malaysia Sdn. Bhd.

Under NTEP, all training aspects are comprehensively considered is designing the training and development programme for the participating graduates. In the case of Micron Memory Malaysia, new college graduates are required to undergo on-the job training for six months, which cover both technical skills and soft skills. This ‘learning by action’ via on-the-job approach is viewed as essential to expose and educate the trainees in an effective manner.

The trainees are also given work exposure at other Micron sites in the region, such as X’an in China and Singapore, to familiarise them with the company’s systems, structure and technology, in addition to networking. The fresh graduates are also assigned with a ‘buddy’ who acts as their mentor at the workplace.
