South Asia

Vice President for this Region:

Dato Sri Ganes

My foundation lies in TVET (Technical Education and Vocational Training). I founded and lead SG Education Group since 1999, which is the parent body of several five star rated skills training colleges across Malaysia. Accredited by the Department of Skills Development (DSD), under the purview of the Ministry of Human Resource Malaysia, SG Education is also accredited and recognised by prominent local and international institutions for its remarkable performance in the TVET industry. My goal is developing job-specific and industry centric training as an alternative pathway for those not inclined towards tertiary education. Moving along the transition towards digitisation, I have uniquely incorporated the skills and talents for Digital Economy in the TVET training in order to produce highly demanded workforce in the industry at international arena.

Further, I have shared, discussed and brainstormed ideas in the IVETA conferences since 2015 and has always been applauded for bringing the most beneficial information that will contribute to the IVETA community in line with its visionary missions. I contributed knowledge and funds to the noble efforts of IVETA with no hesitation, with the sole intention to enhance the preaching and practice of TVET throughout the world.

If I hold a position as an IVETA Executive Committee, it provides me a greater platform to spread the ideology of modern TVET that will contribute directly towards the nation building in which we recognise IVETA is the key that will open every country’s door to channel and distribute the knowledge and technology for TVET development.
