STDC to hone orphans’ skills for career development

By Norrasyidah Arshad

SHAH ALAM, Jan 20 — The state government via the Selangor Technical Skills Development Center (STDC) plans to hone the skills of orphans living in welfare homes.

State executive councillor for human capital development Mohd Khairuddin Othman said the move will ensure orphans can adapt to a new life once they leave the homes.

“Usually they will no longer live in the welfare homes after they turn 18. Therefore, we plan to guide them by honing their skills through various courses provided by STDC.

InsyaAllah, the plan will be implemented after Chinese New Year. There are hundreds of orphanages in Selangor and we hope with this plan, we can help them build their lives,” he said.

Mohd Khairuddin was speaking at the handover ceremony for donations to 45 former Selangor athletes, at Kampung Bahagia Bukit Lagong in Sungai Buloh yesterday.

STDC was rebranded from the INPENS International College in August 2020, as part of the state government’s drive to empower Technical and Vocational Education and Teaching (TVET) under the 2020 Selangor Budget.

Through the move, STDC offers various high-quality training aimed at achieving the Industrial Revolution 4.0.
