KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia, June 24, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — Emeritus, the global leader in making high-quality education accessible and affordable to individuals, companies, and governments around the world, is proud to announce its participation as a partner at the National Training Week (NTW) 2024.

Malaysians demonstrate a strong desire to continuously learn and upskill, with every 1 in 2 Malaysians driven to upskill for job security and increased confidence, as per the ‘Workmonitor 2024’ report by Randstad Malaysia. In line with this growing demand across citizens, National Training Week has rapidly become a cornerstone of Malaysia’s efforts to imbibe continued learning among its citizens, offering a vast array of free training programs. The inaugural NTW exceeded expectations by delivering over 21,000 free training courses to more than 129,000 Malaysians, totaling over 503,000 training hours. Building on this success, NTW 2024 aims to enroll 150,000 participants across the country – from students to working professionals to senior citizens – focusing on life skills, future skills, creativity and innovation, financial literacy, and sustainable development.

Emeritus, which claimed the top spot in TIME magazine’s ‘World’s Top Edtech Companies of 2024’ ranking, has committed to providing free access to Emeritus Insights, a comprehensive learning platform, during the NTW 2024 for up to 10,000 Malaysians.

Drucker, Angela Duckworth, Seth Godin, Simon Sinek, Sheryl Sandberg, etc.

Through its participation in NTW 2024, Emeritus aims to bolster Malaysia’s initiatives to strengthen the economy, aligning with the national goals of Madani Economy Framework – a set of values set to embody Malaysia’s economic growth for the next decade, and the 12th Malaysia Plan (RMK12). Introduced by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim, Madani Economy Framework includes initiatives to enhance Malaysia’s economic growth, promote investments, globalise local businesses and attract international investors. As the nation pursues new areas of growth in high-tech sectors, Artificial Intelligence (AI), energy transition and the green economy, Emeritus is closely working with the government, government-linked agencies, Fortune 1000 companies and public-listed companies in Malaysia to ensure that the nation has enough skilled workforce for the areas in focus.

Speaking on the Emeritus’s participation in National Training Week, Ts. Roslinda Abu Bakar, Regional Director, Emeritus Malaysia, said, “We are delighted to debut as a participant at the National Training Week 2024 with HRD Corp. Our participation in NTW 2024 underscores this commitment to developing Malaysia’s current and future workforce.
