Duration and Certification

SKM


The course is for a period of two years. The boy is expected to stay throughout the two years, as it is a full residential programme. Upon completion of the training the boys will be awarded a certificate from Montfort Boys Town as well as the SKM Certificate.

 


General Studies

General StudiesAll students are required to attend classes in this department.  Lessons are conducted in English.  Students sit for a diagnostic test after which they will be streamed into classes according to their ability in the usage of the English language.  The students learn to develop their listening, speaking, reading and writing skills.  Basic computer knowledge is also incorporated into the programme. 

 


Technical Skills

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Machining

During the two years of studies the boys are trained in the areas of milling, lathe, grinding and drilling to become a machinist. They also learn basic technical drawing. They can expose themselves to production through some incoming customer jobs. They receive additional training with CNC (Computer Numbering Control) and EDM (Electrical Discharge Machine).

The staffs are involved in the different operations of the workshop but each is specialized in a particular area (1st Year, 2nd Year, CNC, drawing milling, lathe).

Previously there were three certificates for each category: H-010 (milling), H-011 (lathe) and H-012 (grinding). Now, they combine to become one certificate for General Machinist. The duration is still two years.

We have received Mastercam, a software for designing and CNC programming.  The Petronas Twin Towers (10 feet high) built for Bosch, using spark plugs, is a combined project of Welding and Machining Departments and is now in the Malaysian Book of Records.

 Graphic Design & Multimedia

GDMPresently, Montfort offers a two year course for boys to be trained in graphic design and multimedia.  The boys are trained in a wide range of skills such as desktop publishing,  graphic design, web page design and digital video production.  The Graphic Design & Multimedia Department has studios which are equipped with the latest computer hardware and software, thanks to the generous support from the public.  Indeed, we are able to provide a conducive environment for the boys to be trained in Level 2 (Multimedia Artist).  

The GDM Department supplements its teaching by allowing the boys to work on design projects from other departments within Montfort.  These live projects provide valuable experience to our boys in their training.  We have three instructors to cater for a total intake of over 25 boys, and future intakes are expected to rise due to the increasing demand for IT training.

 Hospitality

Hospitality is the relationship between guest and host, or the act or practice of being hospitable. Specifically, this includes the reception and entertainment of guests,vistors, or strangers, resorts,membership clubs, conventions, attractions, special events, and other services for travelers and tourists.

“Hospitality” can also mean generously providing care and kindness to whoever is in need.

The hospitality service industry includes hotels, casinos, and resorts, which offer comfort and guidance to strangers, but only as part of a business relationship. The terms hospital, hospice, and hostel also derive from “hospitality,”  and these institutions preserve more of the connotation of personal care.

Montfort Boys Town Hospitality department was developed on June 2010.Level Two certification courses are offered at Montfort Boys Town, they are HT-010-1 (Waiter) and HT-010-2 (Captain).Student intake for the course will commence from August 2010.

Bakery and Pastry 

Baking Class

Welcome to the Bakery & Pastry kitchens of the Montfort Boys Town.

This department was officially launched on the 30th of April 2008. This department was setup to provide vocational education for young people from disavantaged backgrounds. The programmes offered are the Sijil Kemahiran Malaysia Level 2 and Level 3 developed by the Ministry of Human Resources Malaysia.

The programmes introduce basic foundation of bakery and pastry in Level 2 and the skills and theoretical knowledge are further developed in Level 3 of the programme. At Montfort Boys Town we stress on the high degree of practical training coupled with sound theoretical knowledge. This approach will make the students industry ready.

The bakery & pastry department at Montfort Boys Town would not have been possible without the generous support of Dato Lee Choong Yan and Dato Justin Leong from the Genting group and Mr Ono Jukichi.

Making Montfort Boys Town your choice is building a better tomorrow for yourself.

The boys are provided with individual, group and family counselling needs.  The boys will attend two hours of guidance period each week according to their groups.  During the guidance period, they are taught:

- to develop their self-awareness;

- to develop their leadership skills;

- to help them enhance their self-esteem;

- to teach relevant skills for living.


Prefect System

The prefects are organized on a house system. The boys are divided into sub-groups of ten house units. Each house is governed by a Head prefect, Deputy prefect and two sub-prefects.  Above these prefects of each house there are six Headquarters (HQ) prefects in a centralized system where they look after various aspects of running the town.
