MP Jamus Lim

Assoc Prof Jamus Jerome Lim asked the Minister for Education whether the Ministry will consider reducing the hurdle rate for experienced tertiary education providers, such as university lecturers and professors, to acquire SkillsFuture accreditation.

Mr Chan Chun Sing: To raise the quality of adult training and education in Singapore, SkillsFuture Singapore (SSG) sets out Adult Educators (AE) Qualifications Requirements that apply to Training Providers providing SSG-funded certifiable courses.

To support the Training and Adult Education (TAE) sector in meeting these requirements, the Institute for Adult Learning (IAL) offers Singapore Workforce Qualification (WSQ) programmes for adult educators that are in line with the TAE Skills Framework. An example would be IAL’s WSQ Advanced Certificate in Learning and Performance (ACLP), which equips adult educators with skills for classroom-based learning design, delivery and assessment, and emerging areas such as facilitating technology-enabled learning and workplace learning. The WSQ ACLP is offered in a modular format to enable flexible, just-in-time upskilling for existing adult educators.

Adult educators with prior relevant experience can seek credit exemption for the WSQ ACLP modules from IAL if they have comparable TAE qualifications and can produce evidence of relevant practice and experience.
