In the beginning, there are 3 Youth Training Centres. These are:
The Institute Kemahiran Belia Negara (National Youth Skill Training Institute) or IKBN was built in 1966 by the Ministry of Youth and Sports. The initial objective was to solve unemployment problems among the youths. It is thought that IKBN would be the right platform to provide the right skills to ensure employment for the youths. In the 1990s, training programmes were expanded to train as many youths as possible in the technical fields in order to produce skilled workers to fulfill the national industrial needs.
Currently, there are fifteen (15) IKBNs around the country, including one Higher Skills Training Institute (IKTBN) at Sepang. The Ministry’s efforts to expand the training programmes remain one of its core agendas in line with the Government’s policy to develop the country’s Human Resources to meet the demands of the industrial sector’s growth.
IKBN’s development proves the government efforts to provide more training opportunities for the youths in various technical aspects, such as Electrical, Electronics, Mechanical, Automotive, Civil Engineering and Personal Grooming. The Ministry believes that the capacity building and development of skilled workers will help meet the country’s vision to become an industrialised country by the year 2020.
