Are you ready for the evolution in Training and Adult Education?


The new Singapore Workforce Skills Qualifications (WSQ) Advanced Certificate in Learning and Performance (ACLP) is a Train-The-Trainer (TTT) programme designed to equip you with SkillsFuture Singapore (SSG) recognised Training and Adult Education (TAE) competencies to not only perform the role of a learning facilitator, assessor of SSG-funded certifiable courses, but also as a budding learning solutionistNEW! who is able to support the performance needs of enterprises and learners experiencing industry transformation.

This programme is designed for both aspiring and existing TAE practitioners to enhance their sector-domain specialist skills with fundamental and emerging TAE competencies to take on the business transformation challenges affecting enterprises and workers.

The new WSQ ACLP programme is aligned to the recently launched Skills Framework for Training and Adult Education (SFw TAE) and replaces the previous WSQ Advanced Certificate in Training and Assessment (ACTA) qualification. ACLP will extend beyond classroom-based learning design, delivery and assessment to enable learners to develop emerging skills in demand and provide blended learning solutions that can better cater to the needs of learners and enterprises.

Note: If you have already attained the WSQ Advanced Certificate in Training and Assessment (ACTA) full qualification, you will continue to be recogised as meeting SSG's Adult Educator (AE) qualification requirements for the training and assessment of SSG-funded certifiable courses.
