Starting next year, course trainers can attend a new Advanced Certificate in Learning and Performance programme. This course is designed to help trainers master skills that will enable them to become better educators.
This, and other new SkillsFuture initiatives, were recently announced by Senior Minister of State for Trade and Industry Chee Hong Tat. The purpose of these programmes is to raise the quality of adult education training and provide workers with the necessary support to ride the wave of change through skills upgrading.
Training providers will have to ensure that at least 80 per cent of their trainers or assessors are equipped with the necessary qualifications. This requirement previously applied only to Workforce Skills Qualifications (WSQ) training providers.
A framework that provides information such as career pathways, job roles, and relevant competencies required, will also be introduced to help those who wish to join the Training and Adult Education sector.
