What Is it?

Supported by SSG, the National Centre of Excellence for Workplace Learning (NACE) was first established by Nanyang Polytechnic (NYP)in 2018 as a collaboration with the Swiss Federal Institute for Vocational Education and Training (SFIVET), and the German Chamber of Industry & Commerce (IHK Akademie). It aims to help companies build and develop their workplace learning capabilities, solutions and systems through training and consultancy projects.

To further accelerate capability building in companies, more centres will be launched at the Institutes of Higher Learning (IHLs), with the next centre to be located at the Singapore Institute of Technology (SIT). By 2025, we target to help more than 1,200 companies, particularly SMEs, build best practices in workplace learning and work-study capabilities.


What is it for?

NACE will provide the expertise to equip companies, particularly SMEs, with the capabilities to train and develop their workers. This will be done through building a pool of skilled trainers who are capable of identifying and evaluating training and development issues in their companies, and providing customised training solutions.  

NACE will also help companies to build good in-house training systems and workplace learning processes through customised solutions and consultancy services by NACE.

How will I benefit?

NACE will help local enterprises to support and develop staff to grow in today’s manpower-lean environment that most businesses operate in. Local companies can also participate in NACE’s immersion programmes and learning journeys to gain insights and look at good practices on workplace implementation from best-in-class companies locally and overseas.

Adult educators, trainers and supervisors in participating companies can look forward to upgrade themselves to become specialist trainers through best-in-class training by SFIVET and IHK Akademie. They will also receive internationally recognised certification from NACE or SFIVET.

How does it work?

Enterprises who wish to send their staff for NACE’s training or embark on the Workplace Learning Consultancy Services can apply for the programme through NACE. For more information, please click here.
