Your career, your choice

The WSQ course is designed for people who would like to pursue a career of their choice



The Singapore Workforce Skills Qualifications (WSQ) is a national credential certification and standardisation system that trains, develops and provides assessment for skills and competencies for the workforce. WSQ acts to support SkillsFuture as continuing education and training (CET) system. Among its roles are:

  1. To promote the recognition of skills and competencies to propel skill progression, mastery and movement;
  2. To encourage holistic workplace development through the promotion of technical and generic skills and competencies;
  3. To be a generator of economic growth by professionalising skills and competencies to propel industry transformation, production and innovation; as well as
  4. To encourage lifelong learning throughout all stages of professionalism.

Under the WSQ system, the training programmes are developed based on skills and competencies validated by employers, unions and professional bodies. This ensures that existing and emerging skills and competencies that are currently in demand are used to inform training and development under WSQ. With the development of the Skills Frameworks* in 2016, WSQ adopts the skills and competencies that are covered in the Skills Frameworks. 

The WSQ programmes are funded and quality-assured by SkillsFuture Singapore — the organisation that awards the WSQ certifications.
