The Singapore Workforce Development Agency (Abbreviation: WDA; Chinese: 新加坡劳动力发展局) is a statutory board under the Ministry of Manpower of the Singapore Government.
Singapore Workforce development agency
WDA was established in 2003 to enhance the competitiveness of the Signaporian workforce by encouraging workers to learn for life and advance with skills. In today’s economy, most jobs require not just knowledge, but also skills.
WDA collaborates with employers, industry associations, the Union and training organisations, to develop and strengthen the Continuing Education and Training (CET) system that is skills-based, open and accessible, as a mainstream pathway for all workers – young and older, from rank and file to professionals and executives – to upgrade and advance in their careers and lives.
For Singapore’s workforce to remain competitive and employable in today’s fast-changing workplace, they must have both knowledge and skills that are relevant, current and sought after by employers. In turn, this will also help companies strengthen their capabilities, remain competitive, and contribute to stronger economic growth for Singapore.
WDA aims to help workers advance in their careers and lives by developing and strengthening skills-based training for adults. We work with various partners–including employers, industry associations, the Union and training organisations–to develop relevant skills-based training that is accessible to all in the Workforce, whether young or old, from rank-and-file to professionals and executives.
For Eliademy WDA is proudly another public reference in addition to previously announced “The world of Work” and “Workers Association from UK” . We are glad to see that we share a common vision with those associations and to emphasise the message that Eliademy is here to serve all your e-elearning needs.
