Ministry to open six polytechnic schools

JAKARTA. The Industry Ministry plans to open six polytechnic schools by 2019 in an effort to help fill the gap of skilled workers in the country's manufacturing sector.

The ministry's training and education center head, Mujiyono, said the new education facilities would add to the existing 10.

“All the new polytechnic schools will adopt a dual system that allows students to learn both theory and practice,” he said recently.

The schools will be established in Semarang, Central Java, specializing in furniture; in Bantaeng, South Sulawesi, specializing in metal processing; in Dumai, Riau, specializing in palm oil processing; and in Batu Licing, Souh Kalimantan, for the steel industry.

Two other schools offering skills training to support miscellaneous sectors will be built in Bintuni, West Papua and Sei Mangkei, North Sumatra.

Businesses have highlighted difficulties in finding manpower with proper skills despite a workforce of 100 million people in the country.

The manufacturing sector needs a workforce of 589,447 people this year, with ministry data showing the number will increase to 619,732 people by 2019.(Stefani Ribka)
