Abstract

The implementation of the Lifelong Learning programmes (LLL) is aimed to raise the level of knowledge and skills of employees thus developing human capital through increased productivity and competency. However, the extent to which Small and Medium Enterprises (SME) employees feel that this LLL programmes as a requirement for them in career development is still in question. This study aims to explore the perceptions of SME employees on LLL programmes requirements in their career development. This study applied a qualitative approach using case study design. A total of 11 SME employees were selected as its participants. The findings show that the average participants of this study agreed that there is no need for them to engage in the LLL programmes in terms of promotion from employers. This is because SME employers are more committed to working experience, working commitments and social skills. However, in the opinion of SME employees there is a need for them to join the LLL programmes for the purpose of salary increment from employers and opening up other better employment opportunities in their career development.
