Nur­tur­ing fu­ture tal­ents

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - Education Guide -

UN­DER the Eco­nomic Trans­for­ma­tion Pro­gramme (ETP), Malaysia needs 60,000 pro­fes­sional ac­coun­tants by 2020 to trans­form the coun­try into a de­vel­oped na­tion. Thus it is crit­i­cal that ef­forts are in­ten­si­fied to train more ac­coun­tants.

With the ob­jec­tive of pro­duc­ing cal­i­bre ac­count­ing grad­u­ates in Kedah and Perlis, SC Col­lege with over 30 years of ex­pe­ri­ence is cer­tainly well­po­si­tioned to com­ple­ment the Gov­ern­ment’s ob­jec­tive in nur­tur­ing fu­ture tal­ents.

Lo­cated in Alor Se­tar, Kedah, the col­lege was for­merly known as Institut Pro­fe­sional, es­tab­lished in 1981 with the mis­sion to boost the pro­fes­sional hu­man re­sources ca­pac­ity in the fields of ac­count­ing and busi­ness.

Hav­ing trained and ed­u­cated thou­sands of ac­count­ing grad­u­ates, SC Col­lege is com­mit­ted to pro­duc­ing a com­pe­tent work­force to sup­port the coun­try’s so­cial and eco­nomic growth by of­fer­ing qual­ity and af­ford­able ed­u­ca­tion op­por­tu­ni­ties to high school leavers as well as work­ing adults.

The col­lege strives to not only de­liver life­long learn­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties through aca­demic and pro­fes­sional qual­i­fi­ca­tions but also places equal em­pha­sis on stu­dents’ whole­some de­vel­op­ment.

This is to en­sure that grad­u­ates are tech­ni­cally com­pe­tent while pos­sess­ing the right soft skills for that added com­pet­i­tive ad­van­tage in the work­place.

Good com­mu­ni­ca­tion and in­ter­per­sonal skills are part of the teach­ing and learn­ing process.

Stu­dents are en­cour­aged to par­tic­i­pate in in­dus­trial com­pe­ti­tions and in­ter­var­sity chal­lenges in or­der to bench­mark their skills against their peers.

At the same time these chal­lenges de­velop self­con­fi­dence.

Pro­grammes avail­able are Diploma in Ac­count­ing and Fi­nance, Learn Com­put­erised Full Set Ac­counts, Ba­sic Book­keep­ing and Ac­count­ing, Learn Ba­sic Cost­ing, Learn Ad­vanced English and English Short Cour­ses.

The two­year Diploma in Ac­count­ing and Fi­nance (Pear­son LCCI Qual­i­fi­ca­tion) comes with the prom­ise of job sta­bil­ity and the flex­i­bil­ity to a wide choice of ca­reer op­tions in­clud­ing ac­count­ing, au­dit­ing, bank­ing, fi­nance and taxation.

SC Col­lege is the only ap­proved Pear­son LCCI cen­tre in Alor Se­tar and was voted Pear­son LCCI Ex­cel­lent Cen­tre in 2016.

Full Set Ac­counts will pre­pare stu­dents for ca­reers in the busi­ness and ac­count­ing en­vi­ron­ment with em­pha­sis on ac­count­ing prac­tices, com­put­erised ac­count­ing sys­tem and fi­nan­cial man­age­ment.

The Ba­sic Book­keep­ing and Ac­count­ing will help learn­ers build their un­der­stand­ing of ac­count­ing prin­ci­ples for record­ing busi­ness trans­ac­tions and pre­pare and in­ter­pret ac­counts for dif­fer­ent types of busi­nesses.

The col­lege will soon ex­pand its range of busi­ness pro­grammes and pro­fes­sional qual­i­fi­ca­tions such as ACCA to en­com­pass as­pects of ac­count­ing, busi­ness man­age­ment, mar­ket­ing, en­trepreneur­ship and in­vest­ment.

These new cour­ses will al­low stu­dents to con­tinue their higher ed­u­ca­tion with­out hav­ing to leave their home­town.

As a strate­gic aca­demic part­ner of Wawasan Open Uni­ver­sity (WOU), diploma grad­u­ates from the ac­count­ing and fi­nance pro­grammes are en­ti­tled for di­rect en­try to the sec­ond year of the Bach­e­lor of Busi­ness (Hons) Ac­count­ing of­fered by WOU.

Other pro­grammes avail­able are in the field of Man­age­ment, Sales and Mar­ket­ing, Bank­ing and Fi­nance.

The July in­take is open for reg­is­tra­tion.

Stu­dents from Kedah and Perlis can also take up the On­line Dis­tance Learn­ing (ODL) pro­gramme by WOU at the col­lege.

SC Col­lege has also col­lab­o­rated with KDU Uni­ver­sity Col­lege Penang for grad­u­ates to have credit trans­fer to the Bach­e­lor of Ac­count­ing (Hons), which is a dual­award with the Uni­ver­sity of Lin­coln, United King­dom.

The Au­gust in­take for SC Col­lege’s pro­grammes is now open for reg­is­tra­tion.

Schol­ar­ships are avail­able to qual­i­fied school leavers (SPM/OLevel/UEC/STPM/A­Level) to pur­sue the Diploma in Ac­count­ing and Fi­nance.
