POSTED: 30 Sep 2013 11:15


Singapore Acting Manpower Minister Tan Chuan-Jin said the government will embark on a major review of its Continuing Education and Training (CET) Masterplan.

SINGAPORE: Singapore Acting Manpower Minister Tan Chuan-Jin said the government will embark on a major review of its Continuing Education and Training (CET) Masterplan.

He said the review is timely as Singapore seeks to transform the economy and help Singaporeans fulfil their career aspirations at the same time. He added the government hopes to better anticipate future challenges and uncertainties faced by companies and workforce, so that enhancements to the CET system can be made in time.

The current CET Masterplan was launched in 2008 to encourage coordinated efforts in CET.

Mr Tan said the overall aim was to develop a strong CET infrastructure, to encourage workers to embrace lifelong learning, stay relevant and seize opportunities in new growth sectors.

He said further consultation on the Masterplan will be carried out in the next few months, with more details to be shared possibly by the end of next year.

Mr Tan was speaking at a Max Talent graduation ceremony on Monday morning.

Max Talent is a two-year place and train programme launched by the Singapore Workforce Development Agency (WDA) in April 2012.

Administered by the Association of Small and Medium Enterprises, the programme aims to improve the human resource capabilities of SMEs and retain newly hired Professionals, Managers and Executives (PMEs). It is also to help unemployed PMEs secure employment.

Over 530 Singaporean PMEs have been successfully placed with SMEs under the programme. These include some 120 mature PMEs. Those under the programme are employed in SME jobs across different industries such as services, retail and manufacturing.

Mr Tan added that moving ahead, WDA will review and refine the programme content and consider extending the programme to reach out to more SMEs and PMEs.
