KOTA KINABALU: Chief Minister Datuk Seri Musa Haji Aman urges Kolej Yayasan Sabah (KYS) to constantly keep abreast of developments and changes in the national and global economic landscape by offering courses that are more relevant to current demands.

“The choice of courses must take into consideration the changes that are taking place around us in order to be relevant to current demands.

“KYS must also introduce elements of soft skills, multitasking and entrepreneurship to ensure their graduates are competent and able to be part of the quality human capital required by the country,” he said.

The Chief Minister was speaking at the 17th KYS Convocation held at the Tun Ahmad Raffae Auditorium in Yayasan Sabah here yesterday.

He commended the college for pioneering a curricular model for academic, technical and vocational studies which had added value and flexibility.

“This approach enables students to do various study activities that comprise self-study, face-to-face study and continuous study,” said Musa.

He was therefore confident that KYS would succeed in its aspiration to be elevated into a university especially with the increasing number of graduates who have completed their studies in the college.

The convocation yesterday witnessed 507 graduates receiving diplomas and certificates compared to 372 graduates last year.

“Graduates from KYS are largely viewed as having marketable value,” he said while pointing out that since its establishment 20 years ago, KYS had helped to elevate the standard of education in Sabah and created opportunities for youths to fulfil their ambitions.

“The technical and vocational courses in KYS have provided many opportunities to youths especially from the rural areas to gain skills that will help them when seeking jobs,” he said.

Among those present yesterday were Yayasan Sabah director and chairman of the KYS Board of Management Tan Sri Datu Khalil bin Datu Haji Jamalul, chairman of the KYS Board of Directors Datuk Kamal DE Quadra, chief executive of KYS Dr Dg Aminah Ali, Assistant Minister of Youth & Sports Datuk Jahid Jahim and Assistant Minister of Resource Development & Information Technology Datuk Jainab Ahmad.
