ABOUT LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT UNDER SINGAPORE WORKFORCE SKILLS QUALIFICATIONS
The Leadership & People Management (WSQ LPM) qualifications under Singapore Workforce Skills Qualifications (WSQ) is a national credential system that trains, develops, assesses and certifies skills and competencies for the workforce. As a continuing education and training (CET) system, WSQ supports the SkillsFuture movement to:
Promote recognition of skills and competencies to facilitate progression, mastery and mobility;
Promote holistic development of the workforce through technical and generic skills and competencies;
Support economic development by professionalising skills and competencies to drive industry transformation, productivity and innovation efforts; and
Encourage lifelong learning.
Training programmes developed under the WSQ system are based on skills and competencies validated by employers, unions and professional bodies. This process ensures existing and emerging skills and competencies that are in demand are used to inform training and development under WSQ. With the roll out of the Skills Frameworks in 2016, the WSQ adopts the skills and competencies covered in the Skills Frameworks. The WSQ programmes are funded and quality-assured by SkillsFuture Singapore, which awards the WSQ certifications.
