SkillsFuture Singapore (SSG) will be adding four new courses for inclusion under the Work-Study initiative next year. These include courses in the areas of customer experience management, agriculture and aquaculture technology, facilities management, and aerospace engineering.
Speaking at the launch of Work-Study Fair 2022 at Temasek Polytechnic, Mr Foo Piao Zhou, group director of training partners group at SSG, said the initiative gives graduates opportunities to learn industry-relevant skills and constantly reinvent themselves. The programme enables polytechnic and ITE graduates to gain industry-recognised qualifications with on-the-job training and classroom learning.
In addition, Second Minister for Education Maliki Osman highlighted the importance of upskilling as Singapore recovers economically.
