Republic Polytechnic is offering its alumni three SkillsFuture Series courses free of charge.
The courses are run under a brand new RP initiative called the Alumni Skills Advancement Programme (ASAP) which aims to promote lifelong learning amongst graduates and professionals who are alumni of Republic Polytechnic.
According to RP principal Yeo Li Pheow, this offer is valid for only the next three years. He also mentioned that that RP offers about 200 SkillsFuture Series courses, and this number is expected to increase in the future.
SkillsFuture Series courses are industry-relevant training programmes that focus on emerging skills.
Senior Minister of State for Education and Trade and Industry Chee Hong Tat has said that lifelong learning is important, not just for the individual but for the greater economy.
