in Skills Development

Brits, August 2012

Pasdec Automotive Technologies embarks on far-sighted initiative
to produce leaders for the future

On the 18th July, Pasdec’s Chairman Dato' Kamaruddin bin Mohammed officially acknowledged the acceptance of seventeen candidates for the company’s Future Leadership Programme.

These future leaders were selected from amongst many applicants nominated from within the company and were subjected to a rigorous testing and evaluation process.

The programme, which is an accredited skills development course, will last 18 months and will ultimately equip the successful graduates to embark on a supervisory and management career in the automotive components industry.

Handing over certificates of acknowledgement to the candidates, Dato' Kamaruddin bin Mohammed urged them to make full use of this opportunity to advance their careers.

“Through hard work, perseverance and a fear of failure,” said Pasdec’s Chairman to the candidates, “you will succeed and prosper.

This wonderful chance of improving your skills is a very important step forward but it is only the beginning of a long and exciting journey.”

The course was developed in conjunction with the Automotive Industry Development Centre (AIDC). Claude Pillay, AIDC’s Project Manager, emphasised the value of the opportunity that has been presented to these young people.

“This leadership programme,” says Pillay, “represents one of the most advanced courses of its kind and Pasdec should be commended for having shown the foresight and commitment to invest in the long-term development of their staff.”

Kevin Pather, Pasdec’s CEO, expressed his thanks to everybody involved in making this course possible.

“Through the foresight of our shareholders, the contribution of the AIDC and the belief of all parties concerned,” said Pather, “I am delighted that we have been able to set new standards of skills development in a company that has already led the industry whilst training more than 400 employees in accredited learnership programmes.”.
