The Training and Adult Education (TAE) industry plays a key role in supporting the pursuit of skills mastery and enhancing the capabilities of Singapore’s workforce. TAE is a diverse sector, which includes both publicly-funded and private training institutions, as well as self-employed trainers. With over 1,000 organisations in the industry, of which 98% are SMEs, the TAE industry employs over 20,000 of Singapore‘s workforce.
Just as companies in Singapore’s economy are transforming through digital and technological advancements, the TAE sector can also exploit such technologies for greater productivity and a stronger value proposition. Digital technology is thus an important enabler for companies in the TAE sector to expand training modalities, streamline processes, and enhance their competitiveness.
The Infocomm Media Development Authority (IMDA), in partnership with SkillsFuture Singapore (SSG) and the industry, jointly developed the TAE IDP to guide SMEs in their digital transformation efforts. It provides SMEs in the TAE sector with an easy-to-use, step-by-step guide on the digital solutions to adopt at each stage of their growth.
