Mr Leon Perera, Aljunied GRC

Question

To ask the Minister for Education (Higher Education and Skills) in each of the last five years, what is the proportion of persons who obtained the WSQ Advanced Certificate in Training and Assessment (ACTA) had gone on to secure jobs as trainers of WSQ programmes within a year of obtaining their certificate.

Response

1. Based on a survey conducted by SkillsFuture Singapore in 2017, over 60% of the respondents who attained an ACTA between July 2015 and June 2016 were performing, on a full or part-time basis, one or more training-related roles, such as working as a trainer, adjunct adult educator, training management practitioner, or human capital management practitioner. A further 25% of respondents were employed in non-TAE related roles.
