THE applications website for the foreign worker recalibration programme will be running again after data integration between the Human Resources Ministry (MoHR) and the Home Ministry (KDN) complete.

Human Resources Minister Datuk Seri M Saravanan said integrating all existing data and systems between the two ministries is important as one might have data that the other does not.

“Foreign worker intakes were coordinated via two systems, namely MoHR’s Foreign Workers Integrated Management System and KDN’s Foreign Workers Centralised Management System,” Saravanan said after announcing the e-LATiH competition yesterday.

Meanwhile, on the content development competition for online learning platform e-LATiH, Saravanan said upskilling and reskilling

through online learning platforms are pivotal for digital transformation. He said a multi-racial and multicultural country must provide opportunities for all people to master skills in their mother tongue or language of choice.

He also said e-LATIH fits perfectly into the Malaysian Digital Economy Blueprint, which is geared at ensuring that Malaysians can embrace digital transformation holistically.

“The course’s title should be simple, self-explanatory and reflects the objective of the competition.

“I hope Malaysians will take the opportunity to send their entries and help the community learn,” Saravanan said.

HRD Corp CEO Datuk Shahul Dawood said e-LATIH’s impact on Malaysia’s training and development landscape in the last eight months had motivated HRD Corp to continue to grow the platform in more ways.

He said e-LATIH has attracted over 146,000 registered learners and recorded close to 360,000 enrolments across all of its courses since its introduction in February.

“Currently, the majority of the courses offered on e-LATIH are in English and to make it more accessible to more Malaysians, we believe it is important to offer them in all main languages spoken and used in the country.

“This will ensure that we can have more dynamic and diverse content on e-LATIH for the long term.

“I look forward to receiving some great content from the competition and for e-LATIH to be a key feature in the Malaysian training and development landscape for the long term,” he concluded.
