Equipping Singaporean adults with digital literacy skills for the digital economy

The SkillsFuture for Digital Workplace 2.0 (SDFW 2.0), is a training programme that focuses on four key areas: automation, cybersecurity risk, data analytics, and in-demand digital tools.

It aims to help Singaporeans and enterprises be better prepared for the rapidly evolving digital economy. The initiative was first launched in 2017 to equip Singaporeans with basic digital skills at the workplace. The relaunched SFDW 2.0 will focus on delivering training that are relevant and up-to-date with the latest digital trends.

SSG has also worked with the appointed programme partners to develop customised training programmes for six sectors – namely Built Environment, Food Services, Manufacturing, Retail, Tourism and Transportation. Employers in other sectors who wish to contextualise the training programme can also approach SSG’s appointed programme partners to do so.


Who is it for?


The SFDW 2.0 programme aims to equip Singaporean adults (including those planning to return to the workforce) with digital literacy skills to prepare them for the digital economy.


The programme, with a duration of up to 2 days, seeks to equip Singaporeans with emerging digital skills such as Artificial Intelligence, Data Analytics and Internet of Things.


Employers will be able to tap on the SFDW 2.0 to equip their employees with the right mind-set and skills for the digital economy.

  1. Awareness of the jobs and digital skills required in the current and future digital economy
