Ninety (90)% of future jobs will require some level of digital literacy. A talent pipeline of tech workers in the digital economy is now possible, thanks to a collaboration last month between MDEC and General Assembly (GA). The collaboration creates an avenue for Malaysians to upskill and reskill job seekers, future-proofing our digital and tech professionals to become the very best within the global digital industry.

“Upskilling and reskilling are significant in helping to strengthen the quality of our digital workforce. It is the most important part of our digital talent development strategy,” iterated Surina Shukri, CEO of MDEC during the formal announcement of the collaboration between MDEC and General Assembly last month.

GA will offer critical and in-demand upskilling content as well as processes that match current and next-gen digital capabilities. The tech educator promises to introduce radical reskilling for those who will assume previously non-existent digital roles while creating a new talent pipeline that operates like an on-demand service.

The company was seen as a suitable partner given a history of transforming thousands of careers with full-time immersive programmes since 2011, as well as its tech curricula-focus on skills that today’s companies need; software engineering, data science, and user experience design. Going beyond just intensive training, graduates are armed with tools for landing a new role.

GA is one of MDEC’s many industry partners with whom it is working closely to facilitate the continued advancement of digital skills transformation. The establishment of global training companies in Malaysia like GA, reinforces the fact that Malaysia has a lot of potential in pushing the envelope further for digital talent development.
