What are the educational experiences of individuals who are graduates of both formal tertiary education and the Singapore Workforce Skills Qualifications (WSQ) system?
With higher numbers of students attaining tertiary level qualifications and a greater demand for PMEs in the workforce, there will be more participants in WSQ programmes who already have diploma or degree-level educational qualifications. We need to learn from the experiences of these people to be able to provide appropriate and effective WSQ training programmes.
The first phase of the research explores the current policy context. The second phase analyses WDA statistics to provide a profile of the prior qualifications of people completing WSQ qualifications. The third phase focuses on the learners’ reflections on their tertiary education and WSQ experiences, drawing on data from an online survey (111 respondents), interviews (30 participants) and two focus groups.
