30 June 2022 — NUS Computing, National Trades Union Congress (NTUC), Employment and Employability Institute (e2i) and Tech Talent Assembly (TTAB) have signed an agreement to launch a new programme to equip participants with the skills needed to drive digital change in their companies, as well as to navigate and thrive in an increasingly digitalised economy.
The SkillsFuture Career Transition Programme (SCTP) NUS Digital Transformation Programme (DTP) will offer participants the latest insights into various widely-used digital technologies, and enable them to become agents of digital change in any company the participant may eventually join.
Taught by experts from Advanced Computing for Executives (ACE) under NUS Computing, participants will pick up skills and knowledge related to the fundamentals of e-commerce, digital marketing as well as the management of digitalised operations such as Agile methodology, technology for productivity, and business security solutions.
In the three-month programme, the participants will learn through live sessions, small group work with fellow participants, and conversations with NUS faculty and industry practitioners on today’s most relevant digital topics. Participants will apply the skills and knowledge learnt to solve real life case studies from partner organisations using a hands-on approach in a train-and-coach environment.
Throughout the programme, participants can also access employment facilitation services and career advisory to enhance their employment prospects. Graduates from the programme will receive four Professional Certificates from NUS, and assistance to join a selection of partner companies.
“NUS Computing has ramped up our course offerings to the industry over the last one year. We have launched more than 150 SkillsFuture Singapore (SSG) funded short courses that are stackable to 40 over Professional Certificates. These courses cater to a broad spectrum of adult learners including senior and middle management, executives, computing professionals, mid-career switchers and unemployed PMETs,” said Professor Mohan Kankanhalli, Dean of NUS Computing.
“Our School has a very successful SGUnited Skills (SGUS) Programme in International Financial Technology (FinTech) for non-Technical Executives. Riding on this success, we have gained enough experience in the reskilling of unemployed PMETs to launch this new SCTP in Digital Transformation. We are pleased to partner with NTUC, e2i, SCALE and TTAB in this endeavour. Other SCTP programmes in the pipeline from our School are in the areas of business analytics and FinTech. We look forward to our continuous relationships with our partners to support and contribute to the national efforts in educating, training and upskilling of our workforce, and be a pillar of the NUS Lifelong Education initiative,” he added.
