Training and Adult Education


As Singapore makes more investments on Continuing Education and Training (CET) and expands the Singapore Workforce Skills Qualifications (WSQ) system to meet the growing skills needs of industries, the demand for professionals in Continuing Education and Training (CET) and Workforce Skills Qualifications (WSQ) will increase in tandem.

The Training and Adult Education (TAE) WSQ Framework has been developed to improve the capabilities and professionalism of TAE Professionals in areas such as: adult education, human resource development, training management, and workforce development. This will meet the continuing demands of quality education as well as training and development in Singapore.

In order to raise the Adult Educators’ professionalism through quality curricula, we need concerted efforts to focus on centralised strategies on how TAE WSQ programmes are being offered. Therefore, with effect from 1st January 2016, the Institute for Adult Learning (IAL) will be the sole provider of TAE WSQ programmes to qualify WSQ adult educators to perform roles as WSQ trainers, assessors and curriculum developers.
