It appears that Malaysians who were unfortunate enough to have lost their jobs during the country’s Covid-19 crisis can maybe try their luck at babysitting.

The Women, Family and Community Development Ministry is encouraging unemployed Malaysians who are interested in early childhood education to sign up for the government’s PERMATA Child Care Course (KAP).

The KAP training course provides basic schooling for individuals interested in seeking employment or would like to operate their own childcare centers or taskas.

Minister Datuk Seri Rina Mohd Harun, explains that each KAP participant is entitled to receive an RM900 incentive payment under the government’s Covid-19 Economic Recovery Plan (PENJANA).

However, according to the Social Welfare Department’s (JKM) website, each KAP participant needs to pay RM800 for a 144-hour theory course and practical training as well as another RM100 for the PERMATA module or textbook on early childhood education.

…those who are interested can then apply to attend a KAP course through the JKM website.
