In October 2016, the Singapore Workforce Development Agency (WDA) went through a restructuring exercise and was reconstituted into Workforce Singapore Agency (WSG) which continues to come under the Ministry of Manpower. As part of this exercise, a new statutory board under the Ministry of Education, the SkillsFuture Singapore Agency (SSG) was also established.

SkillsFuture Singapore

As the national skills authority, SSG drives and coordinates the implementation of the national SkillsFuture movement, promote a culture and holistic system of lifelong learning through the pursuit of skills mastery, and strengthen the ecosystem of quality education and training in Singapore, including making available job-skills insights to sign post to individuals, enterprises and training providers on key changes and trends in jobs and skills.

Workforce Singapore

At WSG, we oversee the transformation of the local workforce and industry to meet ongoing economic challenges. We promote the development, competitiveness, inclusiveness, and employability of all levels of the workforce.
