Training provider Kaplan Professional has been barred from conducting Singapore Workforce Skills Qualifications (WSQ) courses for 12 months.
This is Kaplan Professional’s second suspension since last December, after further audit checks uncovered serious lapses in which trainers from Kaplan were found to have flouted SSG’s guidelines on assessment practices.
SkillsFuture Singapore (SSG) said Kaplan Professional’s accreditation as an Approved Training Organisation (ATO) will also be revoked, and that funding from SSG will also cease for all their WSQ courses for the same period, which start from July 1.
SSG said Kaplan Professional should continue teaching participants who are enrolled in WSQ courses that will be completed by June 30, and Kaplan will also be required to place participants who are enrolled in courses scheduled to begin after June 30 with other WSQ-approved training organisations.
