Pada tahun 2008, Program Pengurus Kediaman ataupun “Home Managers Programme” telah dilancarkan oleh Kementerian Pembangunan Wanita, Keluarga Dan Masyarakat dan telah dilaksanakan menerusi Jabatan Pembangunan Wanita.

Objektif Program ini adalah untuk menyediakan latihan profesional dalam bidang pengurusan rumah tangga kepada wanita khususnya bagi mereka yang berpendapatan rendah untuk menceburi industri baru sebagai Pengurus Kediaman.

Ini diharapkan akan dapat juga membantu mengatasi masaalah kekurangan pembantu rumah di Malaysia apabila negara Indonesia mula menghentikan penghantaran pembantu rumah mereka ke sini.

Kursus selama dua minggu (14 hari) dijalankan di setiap negeri mengunakan Modul Kursus Asas Pengurusan Kediaman.

Sasaran peserta seramai 30 orang di setiap program iaitu 450 orang diseluruh negara.

Program ini dikatakan mengandungi modul yang lengkap seperti Teknik Pengurusan Kediaman, Penjagaan Makanan & Kesihatan, Pengetahuan Asas Penjagaan Kanak-Kanak, Orang Tuan Dan OKU serta Pertolongan Cemas.

Kursus ini memastikan bakal Pengurus Kediaman mempunyai kemahiran dan pengetahuan tertentu supaya mereka dapat menjalankan tugas dan tanggungjawab dengan penuh profesional dan efisien.

Namun atas sebab kekurangan modal program ini ditamatkan pada tahun 2010 dan dalam proses kajian semula.

Kebelakangan pula ini terdapat beberapa pihak yang mencadangkan program ini dihidupkan semula:

REVIVAL: Human Resources Ministry may revive programme to train locals in home management  THE Human Resources Ministry will consider reviving the home managers programme as an answer to the demand for domestic maids. This follows Indonesia’s intention to gradually reduce the supply its citizens working as maids abroad to almost nil by 2017.

Programme by Women’s Development Department could be answer to households in desperate need of domestic help. HOME managers trained under a programme started by the Women’s Development Department (JPW) of the Women, Family and Community Development Ministry in 2008 are demanding for  it to be re-launched.

They said this was because quite a number of women were interested to be home managers and there was a demand for them, especially with the uncertainty over the Indonesian maid issue.

The programme got off to a promising start four years ago, but fizzled out barely two years later.

MUKAH: The government should look into reviving the home manager programme, which was initiated by the federal Women’s Development Department in 2008. “This is to tackle potential hiring problems, after the decision by the Indonesian government that the new batch of Indonesian maids would be employed to do only one of four tasks they are trained in and that their minimum wage will be RM700 per month.”

Welfare, Women and Family Development Minister Datuk Fatimah Abdullah regards the new hiring terms of Indonesian maids of ‘one maid, one task’ as restrictive and unaffordable to most middle-income households.

The decision needs to be re-looked into, because not everyone could afford to pay RM700 a month for a maid who will only do one chore. It will be beyond the means of the low- and middle-income households.”

Namun ada pelbagai isu yang perlu dilihat dan diselesaikan sebelum ia boleh dihidupkan semula. Yang paling penting adalah KEBERKESANANnya bagi mengatasi masaalah utama iaitu kekurangan pembantu rumah.

Menurut, Menteri Sumber Manusia, Datuk Seri Dr S. Subramaniam kebanyakkan mereka yang menyertai program ini tidak menjadi pengurus kediaman mahupun pembantu rumah, akan tetapi memilih kerjaya yang lain yang lebih menarik buat mereka.

The programme was an initiative introduced under the Women, Family and Community Development Ministry in 2009 to reduce the country’s dependency on foreign maids. However, it was not well received, as those who completed the training chose not to become maids.

Dr Subramaniam said some had opted for more lucrative jobs, such as going into business and working in hotels or resorts. “We need to address several issues when  employing locals as maids. Most Malaysians, who have minimum SPM qualifications, do not consider being maids as a lucrative career choice.”

Kalau begini, buat apply masuki program itu dulu? Hendak dapat sijil sahaja? Takkan guna sijil “Pengurus Kediaman” untuk mohon jawatan kerani atau receptionist kot?
