Cindy Ho is a key trainer for NTUC LearningHub’s SkillsFuture for Digital Workplace programme. She uses various activities in her training so that participants find learning an enjoyable experience. We caught up with her to find out more about the Skillsfuture for Digital Workplace programme.
Q: What is the programme all about?
A: The SkillsFuture for Digital Workplace programme, or SFDW for short, is a two-day awareness programme for Singaporeans to learn about emerging technologies in the workplace, as well as in daily life. There are many changes happening around us and the SFDW programme hopes to inform learners of these changes and some of its impact on our work and lives.
Q: What’s your experience with the SFDW programme?
A: I have been training both public and corporate classes in the SFDW programme with NTUC LearningHub since its launch in August 2017. Participants from the public classes are always amazed at how fast Singapore is moving towards being a Smart Nation. They appreciate how the programme exposes them to the different technologies affecting their daily lives, both at work and at home.
Q: What is unique about NTUC LearningHub’s SFDW programme?
A: There are many engaging activities that will help participants learn through hands-on activities or active group discussions and presentations.
Concepts like cybersecurity and data analytics will be broken down for participants so they can understand what they mean and how it relates to their lives. One highlight of the programme is a field trip – we will be visiting an organisation to learn how it has stood the test of time and kept up with digital and technological changes to remain at the cutting edge.
Q: Who do you think should register for the SFDW programme?
A: If you have heard of things like Smart Nation, cybersecurity, data analytics, innovation and technology, but don’t really know what they mean, and want to find out more, then SFDW is the programme for you! We will be exploring and discussing these topics in class and its impact on our lives. The programme is also highly subsidised by the Government – only $50 for Singaporeans, and you can use your SkillsFuture Credits to pay for it. Better still, if you are a union member, you only need to pay $10!
