After two years of Covid safety measures and border closure, KLC International Institute, our training and consulting arm, restarted efforts in 2022 to attract more people in Malaysia to work in the preschool sector in Singapore.

It took part in the The Star Education Fair organised by the newspaper in Selangor on 12 and 13 November. On 10 and 11 December, it partnered with Skool4Kidz Preschool to host a joint Career Fair in Johor Bahru. Both events generated a lot of interest in the early childhood sector (EC) and career opportunities in Singapore.

The outreach exercises were targeted at graduating students and mid-careers switchers. KLCII took the opportunity to highlight recent government announcements of improved wages and career benefits over the next two years to meet an expected increase in vacancies for preschool educators.
