In our continuous effort to stem the brain drain and nurture future talent pipeline, PFF puts in great effort to develop our scholars. One of the annual events- PFF Bootcamp is the time when we gather all our scholars (for Year 2017, it was batch 2015 and batch 2016) in a place and provide them with the necessary training.
The main objectives for PFF Bootcamp are:
- To align scholars on PFF’s objectives and State’s vision, plans and programs.
- To encourage camaraderie amongst scholars and strengthen the alumni bond
- To develop the scholars through soft skills training eg: leadership and communication skills.
During the 2 Day 1 Night PFF Bootcamp (2017), a professional trainer from JORA was hired to provide soft-skills training to the scholars followed by Bootcamp Challenge and sharing sessions by industry players. In the PFF Bootcamp 2017 Challenge, scholars were tasked to make a short video with the aim in promoting Penang as the place to work and live. The event was attended by 147 PFF Scholars and was held on 26 & 27 August 2017 at Paradise Beach Resort.
