The Singapore Workforce Skills Qualifications (WSQ) is a national credential system that trains, develops, assesses and certifies skills and competencies for the workforce aimed to:-
- Promote recognition of skills and competencies to facilitate progression, mastery and mobility;
- Promote holistic development of the workforce through technical and generic skills and competencies;
- Support economic development by professionalising skills and competencies to drive industry transformation, productivity and innovation efforts; and
- Encourage lifelong learning.
SRA is a provider of WSQ Courses which are developed under the WSQ system based on skills and competencies validated by employers, unions and professional bodies. This ensures existing and emerging skills and competencies that are in demand are used to inform training and development under WSQ. The WSQ system also adopts the skills and competencies covered in the Skills Frameworks launched in 2016. The WSQ programmes are funded and quality-assured by SkillsFuture Singapore, which awards the WSQ certifications. Key features of WSQ courses are:-
