CBLD collaborates with SkillsFuture Singapore

Singapore, September 2018 - The Center for Competency-Based Learning & Development (CBLD), an authorised reseller and implementation partner of TalentGuard, signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with SkillsFuture Singapore (SSG) on 13th August 2018. This joint-collaboration aims to promote and drive adoption of the Skills Frameworks digitally using TalentGuard software for enterprises in Singapore.

SSG’s Skills Framework is an integral component of the Industry Transformation Maps (ITM) developed by the Singapore government together with a group of employers, industry associations and trade unions. It aims to create a common language across industries and for training providers to facilitate skills recognition and support the design of training programs for skills and career development. The Skills Framework is also developed to build deep skills for a lean workforce, enhance business competitiveness and support employment and employability. Adopting a digitised Skills Framework via TalentGuard will be a major business transformation for any organisation.

CBLD is TalentGuard’s authorised reseller and implementation partner in expanding its reach in the APAC Market. Leveraging on CBLD’s expertise on competency frameworks, the TalentGuard software allows Singapore-based enterprises to utilise its various functions, which are embedded with Skills Framework content. The software runs on a competency framework across industries, which helps enterprises digitise Skills Framework to determine proficiency in each job role by combining criteria such as an employee’s knowledge, skills, experience, qualifications, and abilities. Enterprises will be able to access information on more than 30 Skills Frameworks developed by SSG.

“Being a strong advocate of competency-based processes and competency frameworks, we see the benefits of digitising SSG’s Skills Framework through a robust talent management software like TalentGuard. We believe that, together, CBLD and SSG can come ready with immense knowledge and experience to transform local enterprises with the adoption of the digitized Skills Frameworks.” said Elizabeth Chan, CEO of Center for Competency-Based Learning & Development.
