What is MLVK?
MLVK stands for Majlis Latihan Vokesyenal Kebangsaan or NVTC (National Vocational Training Council). It is JPK now (The Jabatan Pembangunan Kemahiran). It was established under the Ministry of Human Resources for the purpose of promoting and coordinating skills training strategy and programme in keeping with Malaysia's development needs.
MLVK's main objectives are:
To establish a coordinated skills training system attuned to Malaysia's development goals and needs.
To promote the development of skills training.
To certify skills competence.
National Occupational Skill Standards (NOSS).
MLVK seeks to ensure that skills training programmes are benchmarked against actual workplace requirements, as required in the competency-based training approach, by developing National Occupational Skill Standards (NOSS).
NOSS is defined as 'a specification of the competencies expected of a skilled worker who is gainfully employed in Malaysia for an occupational area and level'.
NVTC develops NOSS with the direct participation of industry experts and practitioners. By utilising NOSS as the basis for delivering training programmes, training providers ensure that their graduates meet the workplace competency requirements expected by the Malaysian industry.
