The Importance of Portable Skills And Vocational Training


Source: Academia International


With a great education and the right training your future is already heading down the path to success. Having the right skills, and more importantly having portable skills, will make you a highly desirable employee. On top of your vocational training attending business school is just one way of equipping yourself with a range of skills that your future employer will not be able to resist.


Portable Skills


Being able to apply yourself to many facets of a job will give you a competitive edge that an employer will find highly desirable and during a job interview will give you the necessary advantage over other candidates. If you have portable skills you are invaluable to your employer as you can develop in many other areas and continue to grow. An employer would rather hire one person to do the job of many.

By being able to transfer your skills and become useful in different areas of your workplace you will continue to find your job challenging and rewarding. By remaining interested in your job you will find it easier to apply yourself and you will also discover that with additional skills there is more prospects of advancing within the company. Employers reward valuable employees and having portable skills will help you reap the benefits.


Vocational Training


Through undertaking vocational training you are equipping yourself with a set of skills that will not only lead you down a satisfying career path, but will help you become a valued and needed member of any community. Good communication and customer service skills are necessary in any job and English school is a worthwhile addition to any vocational training. Having a well rounded education is important to an employer, as well as customers, and being able to extend yourself in other areas of your job will be highly beneficial in the long run. These are the types of skills that could lead you to running your own business in the future.


If you can bring a range of skills to your vocational training you are setting yourself up for a much wider range of opportunities within your job. For example, as an apprentice hairdresser you may normally find yourself washing hair and answering the phone when you first start out, but instead, with portable skills, your job description could soon be extended to include customer relations or creating marketing opportunities for the business. Imagine how delighted your employer would be if you could mulit-task effectively and handle more than one position.


Success with Portable Skills

Knowledge is power and vocational training a vital tool to helping you gain that knowledge. By extending your areas of expertise and gaining a range of portable skills you are putting yourself ahead of the competition and ultimately you will improve your level of job satisfaction. Being flexible within a job means you will be the first person your employer will call upon and someone who will gain their trust and respect. By having such a range of skills you will become the one person that your employer can not do without and the person who will continue to grow within the company.


Banting Not The Only Attraction

By Stuart Michael

BANTING, a town in the district of Kuala Langat, Selangor, has a laid-back lifestyle and offers good food, reasonably-priced shopping and has a rich history. Situated on the banks of Sungai Langat, the town, with a population of about 50,000, has many attractions and one of them is a good place to shop for textiles.


The Indah Pesona Textile godown at Wisma MDKL is popular for its low-priced baju kurung and curtains. If you love saris and Punjabi suits, go to Jalan Pekan Banting. There you will find many items from India and the biggest of the shops is called Harekrishna. After watching the beautiful sunset at Morib beach, treat your family to a hearty meal as a whole stretch of stalls selling everything from satay to sotong and ikan bakar comes alive at night. On Sundays, there is a karaoke session with a small price of RM2 per song. Historically, the beach was a landing point for the British and Indian liberation forces during World War II.


Nature lovers can go jungle-trekking in the forest reserve at Bukit Jugra. Before reaching the peak, a lighthouse stands guard to guide vessels plying the Straits of Malacca. The view from the peak is breathtaking, so don’t forget to bring along a camera. Bukit Jugrah used to be called Parcelar Hill — derived from the Arabic word balasar, which means “above the head”.


Visitors should not miss the prominent Kanchong Darat landmark which is the Sidek residence belonging to Datuk Sidek Abdullah Kamar, the father of the Sidek badminton brothers. The brothers’ eldest sister stays there now, but visitors who wish to see the house are always welcome.


Before reaching Bukit Jugra, visitors will come across Makam Sultan Abdul Samad, the resting place of Sultan Abdul Samad Almarhum Raja Abdullah. He reigned as the Sultan of Selangor from 1857 to 1898. During his reign, Selangor saw its only civil war, which came to be known as the Klang War.

Banting town is also famous for its rojak mee and cendol. According to locals, the best rojak mee, which is pasembur and yellow noodles with five different curries, can be found at Restoran Tawaqal. The restaurant, run by a family of Indian Muslims from India, has been at Jalan Sultan Abdul Samad since 1941. Only two cendol stalls are worth mentioning here.


Both can be found along Jalan Sultan Abdul Samad — one in front of the old Lido cinema, which uses the traditional method to shave the ice, and the other in front of the KFC restaurant. Istana Bandar is historical as the fifth Sultan of Selangor, Sultan Alauddin Sulaiman Shah, built the royal palace in 1905.


It was the birth place of Sultan Salahuddin Abdul Aziz Shah, the 11th Yang di-Pertuan Agong, who died in office. The palace is open daily to the public. Admission is free. Visiting hours are from 8am to 6pm. For those who want fresh fish, Kampung Endah fishing village is the spot to visit. Fishermen can be seen unloading their catch or mending broken nets here. There is a Chinese restaurant in the area and patrons can ask the restaurant to cook the fish for you.


Another popular tourist spot is Fazz Enterprise Kerepek House located at Kanchong Darat which offers 75 different traditional crackers and kuih. It is owned by the Mahmuddin Abas family which grows its own tapioca, banana and oil palm to make the snacks. The family also owns a small shop selling furniture made from Indonesian Jati wood.


Pantai Kelanang is a new tourist spot in Banting. Unlike Morib beach, which is a hive of activity, it is quite serene here. With a white sandy beach nestled behind mangrove trees, it is a place to relax and enjoy the peace and calm. To get to this beach, take the same road to Morib beach. After Tongkah, signboards have been placed to guide visitors. Banting town has suddenly captured the attention of all Malaysians and for the first time people all over the country are talking about it.


It did not even get so much of attention even when the Sidek brothers, who come from Kampung Olak Lempit not far from Banting town, were winning honours on the national and international front during their heyday. The town is located 32km from Klang and 20km from the KL International Airport (KLIA). 


The townspeople are as stunned as the rest of the nation over the brutal killing of millionaire Datuk Sosilawati Lawiya along with three others.The mood is sombre in Banting and the people were devastated, finding it difficult to believe such a ruthless crime took place in their area. Inevitably, the news of the murder and arrests had been the talking point in coffee shops, offices and schools especially over the past two days. StarMetro made a check around Banting town and found life continues to go on at a slow pace.


It resembles the usual set up of a small town which is mostly filled with double-storey shophouses. The visit also found that there were not many people out and about in the town which appeared rather quiet compared with normal days.The shops including restaurants and retail outlets were rather empty. The people seemed to have come to terms with the frequent appearance of police vehicles, journalists and photographers in town. Anthony Paul, 47, said Banting attracted a lot of attention from people all over the country. He said the news reports had also placed the town in a bad light.
