Cloud Computing Skills Will Power a Future-Ready Singapore Workforce

The National Trade Union Congress (NTUC) Learning Hub (LHUB) will deliver courses, powered by AWS Educate, to train and reskill 20,000 Singaporeans before the end of 2019 as part of their workforce development program.

LHUB will use the content and expertise provided by AWS Educate, a global program that provides a robust set of learning resources and AWS Promotional Credits for trainees and trainers to acquire the latest cloud computing skills. Trainers and learning institutions can incorporate cutting-edge cloud technology, open source content into their teaching curriculum, and provide students with hands-on experience using AWS Promotional Credits.

Singaporeans can take advantage of these resources through NTUC’s Skillsfuture for Digital Workplace (SFDW) two-day training course. LHUB is one of the appointed training providers by Skillsfuture Singapore (SSG) to deliver courses under the SFDW programme and has trained more than 3,000 Singaporeans since October 2017. LHUB intends to train up to 20,000 more by end 2019 alone.

“With fast growing demand for a cloud-skilled workforce from businesses across all sizes and public sector organizations, the AWS Educate programme provides NTUC LearningHub the critical tools and advanced technologies to help Singaporeans develop highly sought-after cloud computing skills, while making the learning experience more relevant and practical,” said Vincent Quah, Asia Pacific and Japan Regional Head of Education, Research, Healthcare and Not-For-Profit Organizations, Amazon Web Services. “We are pleased to collaborate with NTUC LearningHub in helping Singapore bridge the technology skills gap and provide Singaporeans with opportunities to learn vital digital skills with AWS Cloud services.”
