After 2 years conducting our CSR with the high schools, our 2018 program is being held with a tertiary-level institution, Institut Latihan Perindustrian (ILP) Prai, Pulau Pinang. This time, the approach is more long-term, creating a sustainable smart partnership that aims to bridge the classroom knowledge of ILP students and the real-world skills.
As part of this partnership, routine class-like sessions are being held, along with the company directors sitting in the Technical Advisory Committee (TAC) for its Diploma program.
Selected teaching staffs from the Computer System department will also work with the team from time to time as part of their industrial attachment training.
The 2017 CSR program was conducted in SMKA Al-Irshad, Pokok Sena, Pulau Pinang. Delivering fresh modules for students of 30, we were focusing on a new exposure by introducing Cyberpreneurship as a main subject for the session.
Students are exposed more to business and marketing, and how they can associate technology with their innovative ideas which can be a product or services. Students are also defined as an entrepreneur, developing good ideas by creating products or services that can affect the targetted market.
We hope that the outcomes from this program can motivate the students in the future.
As part of the company’s serious commitment to contribute towards the local community, Fulkrum Interactive launched its maiden Corporate Social Responsibility Program – Sekolah Angkat 2016.
Sekolah Menengah Sains Kepala Batas was chosen as the first school in this program, where each month our team members will provide a free programming class to selected students.
The aim of this program is to reduce the gap between student’s classroom theory and the actual challenges facing them in the real IT world. It also exposes Fulkrum’s employees to soft skill developments and a bigger sense of purpose.
