As two agencies that work very closely with each other, SkillsFuture Singapore and Workforce Singapore have come together to offer the SSG-WSG Joint Undergraduate Scholarship.
Find out more about our scholarship below.
In October 2016, the Singapore Workforce Development Agency (WDA) went through a restructuring exercise and was reconstituted into Workforce Singapore Agency (WSG) which continues to come under the Ministry of Manpower. As part of this exercise, a new statutory board under the Ministry of Education, the SkillsFuture Singapore Agency (SSG) was also established.
At SSG, we drive and coordinate the implementation of the national SkillsFuture movement, promote a culture and holistic system of lifelong learning through the pursuit of skills mastery, and strengthen the ecosystem of quality education and training in Singapore.
At WSG, we oversee the transformation of the local workforce and industry to meet ongoing economic challenges. We promote the development, competitiveness, inclusiveness, and employability of all levels of the workforce. This will ensure that all sectors of the economy are supported by a strong, inclusive Singaporean core.

It is rewarding to have my recommendations taken into consideration at the senior management-level, especially when the work we do in both agencies has a direct impact on individuals and employers.
