NINE COMPANIES PRESENTED WITH THE INAUGURAL NATIONAL WORKPLACE LEARNING CERTIFICATE

Minister for Education, Mr Chan Chun Sing, presented the National Workplace Learning Certification to nine companies at the inaugural Workplace Learning Conference today.

The National Workplace Learning Certification, launched in May 2021, recognises progressive Singapore-based companies that have well developed structures and processes to proliferate good training practices at their workplaces. With support from the National Centre of Excellence for Workplace Learning (NACE), the Certification journey helps companies identify and close gaps in their workplace learning processes and capabilities to better support employees’ development as they work towards getting certified.

The nine companies were the first recipients of the National Workplace Learning Certification. Among them, three companies were awarded the Workplace Learning Organisation of Excellence (Platinum), four were awarded the Workplace Learning Organisation of Competence (Gold), one was awarded the Workplace Learning Organisation of Competence (Silver), and one was awarded the Workplace Learning Organisation of Competence. Please refer to Annex A for the list of company recipients.

Mr Tan Kok Yam, Chief Executive, SkillsFuture Singapore and Chairperson, NACE Steering Committee said, “We commend the nine recipients of the National Workplace Learning Certification. They have demonstrated exemplary commitment to upskill their employees. Employers play a key role in the national SkillsFuture movement: workplace learning is a key enabler of enterprise adaptation and transformation; at the same time, enterprise innovation and transformation give employees the motivation to engage in learning and acquire new skills. I hope more companies will come on board to support continuous learning at work.”
