With the reorganisation of WDA into WSG and SSG, we will be able to better serve the needs of jobseekers, individuals seeking to advance their careers through upgrading, employers seeking to upgrade their employees and training providers looking to develop their capabilities.
This reorganisation enables SSG to better focus on leveraging the strengths of the Institutes of Higher Learning – ITE, polytechnics, and universities – as well as private training providers to move SkillsFuture efforts forward as part of a holistic system of life-long learning.
SSG will coordinate the implementation of SkillsFuture national movement, which aims to provide Singaporeans with the opportunities to develop their fullest potential throughout life, regardless of their starting points. SSG will take over some of the functions currently performed by the Singapore Workforce Development Agency (WDA) and absorb the Council for Private Education (CPE), an existing statutory board under the Ministry of Education (MOE).
Workforce Singapore will focus on jobs and ensuring enterprises can become manpower-lean while remaining competitive and will remain under the Ministry of Manpower (MOM).
Putting the regulatory function of CPE under SSG gives SSG a holistic view of the adult education and training industry and also allow for a more coordinated approach towards audits and quality assurance for the private education institutions and adult training centres.
