With the aim to nurture a design-empowered workforce to meet future demand of the economy, Singapore, a UNESCO Creative City of Design together with DesignSingapore Council, SkillsFuture Singapore and Workforce Singapore has developed the Skills Framework for Design.
The Skills Framework for Design is a resource pool that contains key sector information, career pathways, job roles, existing and emerging skillsets, as well as relevant training programmes.
In addition to offering a common skills language for individuals, employers and training providers, the Framework enables individuals to assess their career interests, identify relevant training programmes and prepare for desired job roles. Employers will also be able to better identify relevant skills and invest in employee training to maintain a strong talent pool. Training providers can use the framework to gather insights about sector trends and emerging skills in demand, enabling them to design programmes that address industry needs.
