Education Minister Chan Chun Sing has said that Singapore must innovate to help smaller companies communicate their skills training needs so that training institutions can respond quickly.
Mr Chan said SkillsFuture Singapore has plans to partner these organisations to identify skills that are in demand and to develop skills-based career pathways.
Mr Chan noted that many companies want to train their workers but do not know how to articulate this need. He said the National Centre of Excellence for Workplace Learning (Nace), which is led by Nanyang Polytechnic, has done much to strengthen support structures for workplace learning.
Last year, Nace also launched the National Workplace Learning Certification scheme, he added. It recognises progressive organisations that have structures and processes in place for good training practices at the workplace.
