The Training and Adult Education (TAE) sector plays a key role in developing the skills capabilities and mastery of the workforce. TAE professionals need to be highly skilled and masters of their craft in order to meet the continuing demand for quality education, learning and development in Singapore. They play a critical role in the national SkillsFuture movement and its focus on skills mastery and lifelong learning. Thus, they need to keep abreast of evolving professional trends and practices, future skills needs, and continue to deepen critical skill sets to stay relevant and responsive to the changing needs of the economy and industries.
