What Is it?

The Skills Framework (SFw) is a SkillsFuture initiative developed for the Singapore workforce to promote skills mastery and lifelong learning, and is an integral component of the Professional Services Industry Transformation Map.

Jointly developed by SkillsFuture Singapore (SSG), Workforce Singapore (WSG), and the Singapore Economic Development Board (EDB), together with industry associations, training providers, organisations and unions, the Skills Framework for Engineering Services provides useful information on:

 

  • Sector information;

  • Career pathways;

  • Occupations and job roles;

  • Existing and emerging skills; and

  • Training programmes for skills upgrading and mastery.

Who Is It For?

Individuals who wish to join or progress within the Engineering Services sector, to assess their career interest, identify relevant training programmes to upgrade their skills and prepare for the desired job roles.
