Community and Social Services


The Singapore Workforce Skills Qualifications System for Community & Social Services (CSS WSQ) Framework trains new and existing workers in the CSS sector to make a difference in the lives of others.

If you are new to the industry, you can enrol in training courses to become equipped with the skills, qualifications, and attitude you need for a job in the CSS sector. If you are currently working in the CSS industry, CSS WSQ training can help you advance in your career by upgrading and broadening your skills.

The WSQ programmes train you for the skills and competencies required for job roles in the following area:

  • Youth Care and Outreach
  • Protection and Rehabilitation
  • Disability Services
  • Senior Services

The WSQ Certifications are awarded by SkillsFuture Singapore, and recognised by Workforce Singapore and the industry.

With the roll out of the Skills Frameworks (SF) in 2016, the WSQ programmes will be progressively aligned to the SF developed for the sector.
