News Press Releases

1.SPRING Singapore will work with partners in key sectors to build up a pool of SkillsFuture mentors who will help SMEs develop the potential of their workforce.

2.SMEs play a key role in developing the skills mastery of our workforce as 70% of our workers are employed by them. However, given their relatively small employment size, SMEs often face challenges developing internal training competence.

3.SkillsFuture mentors will help SMEs implement measures to deepen the skills of their workforce, and help their supervisors and managers develop their coaching skills; mentors will also provide feedback to the employer and trainee in this learning process.

4.These mentors would include retirees with deep skills and experience, and mid-career professionals and executives with experience and know-how in different fields.

Partners

5.Starting in Q3 2015, SPRING Singapore will appoint industry partners, such as Trade Associations and Chambers (TACs) and Centres of Innovation (COIs), to help recruit, manage and match the mentors to interested SMEs. The pool of mentors will be built up over the next two years to 200, serving SMEs in the key sectors.
