Refreshed Continuing Education and Training (CET) Masterplan

The Continuing Education and Training (CET) Masterplan aims to prepare the Singapore workforce for the future. Find out about its plans, aims and benefits.

The CET Masterplan

Under SkillsFuture, we will develop an integrated, high-quality system of education and training that responds to constantly evolving industry needs, as well as foster a culture that supports lifelong learning.

The system of CET is integral to this objective. The CET Masterplan, launched in 2008, has been refreshed in 2014 to better ensure a competitive and career resilient workforce. It will enable working adults, regardless of their starting qualifications, to continue to build and deepen their skills and competencies, throughout their careers.

The new Masterplan has three key areas of focus:

  1. Building deep expertise in the Singapore workforce, with increased involvement by employers in building and valuing skills.
  2. Enabling individuals to make informed learning and career choices through the improved delivery of education, training and career guidance.
  3. Developing a vibrant CET ecosystem with a wide range of high-quality learning opportunities.

Increased Involvement by Employers in Building and Valuing Skills

The government will continue to work closely with employers and other key stakeholders to build and value the skills acquired by individuals. This collaborative effort will enable individuals to deepen their professional competencies, and advance in their careers based on the skills they gain.

More details about the CET Masterplan can be found at the WDA's web-page on CET 2020.
