Bright fu­ture in health care and child­care

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - PARENTING -

THE health care in­dus­try in Malaysia is con­stantly grow­ing, es­pe­cially in this day and age, where the pop­u­la­tion is faced with con­stant health threats.

The child­care in­dus­try is also gain­ing at­ten­tion of late, due to im­proper care given by un­qual­i­fied childhood providers.

With both par­ents be­ing forced to work, all com­mu­ni­ties are in con­stant need of qual­i­fied prac­ti­tion­ers.

SEGi Univer­sity Group is now pro­vid­ing a unique qual­i­fi­ca­tion that en­ables in­di­vid­u­als to en­ter both the health care and child­care in­dus­tries with the Health Care and Child Care pro­gramme (HCC).

This pro­gramme en­ables grad­u­ates to en­joy the best op­por­tu­ni­ties in both the health care and child­care in­dus­tries.

There is a greater aware­ness of health that has re­sulted in more de­mand for qual­i­fied health care pro­fes­sion­als.

Ca­reers in the health care in­dus­try have be­come very lu­cra­tive in the last decade be­cause of the ex­cel­lent pay and perks.

Also, grad­u­ates of the pro­gramme can change and af­fect the lives of oth­ers in a pos­i­tive man­ner on a daily ba­sis.

Ben­e­fits are also equally great if grad­u­ates opt to en­ter the child­care pro­fes­sion.

Many preschools op­er­ate on an av­er­age of six hours on week­days, giv­ing grad­u­ates the per­fect work-life bal­ance.

The child­care pro­fes­sion also pro­vides the op­por­tu­nity to touch the lives of young chil­dren by pro­vid­ing them good guid­ance as they grow and learn.

Ac­cord­ing to sta­tis­tics from the gov­ern­ment, a large num­ber of pri­vate preschool teach­ers do not have for­mal qual­i­fi­ca­tions in ECCE (Early Childhood Care and Ed­u­ca­tion), so there is a huge po­ten­tial for ca­reer ad­vance­ment.

SEGi Univer­sity Group has a work­ing re­la­tion­ship with ex­perts in th­ese in­dus­tries.

SEGi is well-known as Malaysia’s leader in ECCE since 1999 and is also one of Malaysia’s highly rep­utable health sci­ence in­sti­tu­tions.

SEGi also has a strong rep­u­ta­tion as Cham­pion of En­try Point Project (EPP) 2 of Ed­u­ca­tion Na­tional Key Eco­nomic Ar­eas (NKEA) to pro­mote and train ECCE prac­ti­tion­ers in Malaysia.

This pro­gramme ful­fils the gov­ern­ment’s call to pro­duce more health care and ECCE grad­u­ates.

Em­ploy­ment op­por­tu­ni­ties are aplenty for grad­u­ates of this pro­gramme, which in­clude jobs at homes for the aged, chil­dren’s wel­fare homes, kinder­gartens and health ser­vice or­gan­i­sa­tions.

Par­ents might also want to take this op­por­tu­nity to learn about health­care and child­care.
