On 13th February 2017, the School of Business Management (SBM) received a visit from GiatMARA North Zone to further discuss collaboration projects for the Training of Trainers (ToT) Programme. The team which was headed by Mr. Ferdous Othman was welcomed by the Dean, Prof. Dr. Haim Hilman Abdullah, and is accompanied by Ms. Norizan Azizan, Prof. Dr. Kamal Ab. Hamid, Dr. Abdul Manaf Bohari and Mr. Juha Ali.

GiatMARA is an institution aiming to provide technical and vocational skills through hands-on teaching and learning. To date, there are 15 GiatMARA in Kedah, 6 in Pulau Pinang and 3 in Perlis.

The Training of Trainers (ToT) programme, which commenced in 2016, is developed with the aim to provide a comprehensive entrepreneurial knowledge and refreshment course to GiatMARA. It is through this programme that SBM assists GiatMARA to transform their existing training modules to a more up-to-date and state-of-the-art version.

The team expressed their gratitude for the opportunity to collaborate with SBM. It is hoped that the ToT programme will be able to complete and enhance GiatMARA facilitators, trainers and Entrepreneur Advisors in the area of teaching and learning.
