As a national credential system, WSQ can be used as a workforce development tool for employers to develop a skilled workforce, which will enhance their competitive edge and advance their businesses.

WSQ can benefit employers in the following ways:

  • Provide quality assured and industry-relevant training choices
  • Guide training and development planning
  • Guide performance management
  • Strengthen in-house training capabilities
  • Facilitate recruitment of competent staff who are certified and equipped with the required skills and competencies.  

WSQ develops skills and competencies in two aspects: Technical and Generic.

Technical Skills and Competencies Generic Skills and Competencies
Technical skills and competencies comprise occupation, job-specific skills and competencies that an individual needs to perform various job tasks. Generic skills and competencies refer to employability and transferable skills and competencies that are applicable across job roles. They help every individual adapt to new job demands and bring relevant skills across different jobs.
