Future Jobs, Skills and Training (FJST)


Text and Visuals: NTUC This Week


WHY LOOK INTO FUTURE JOBS, SKILLS & TRAINING?
With the economy progressing at an accelerated pace, securing the future is no longer just about ensuring that Singaporeans have jobs today. Rather, it’s about helping our working Singaporeans to transit into the jobs of tomorrow. To do so, the Labour Movement is developing a new capability – Future Jobs, Skills and Training (FJST) to look into the jobs, skills and training required for the future.

HOW TO LOOK INTO FUTURE JOBS, SKILLS & TRAINING?
FJST will function as a strategic nerve centre, leveraging the expanded Labour Movement network and tripartite partners, to identify tomorrow’s jobs and the skills needed for these jobs and synergise efforts to train working people on these skills for these jobs.


THE FJST 3-STEP APPROACH
 

SENSING
Aggregating data on jobs and skills.
Making use of data gathered from the ground to find out where and what are the current and new opportunities available for workers. Sources of such information can and will come from the Labour Movement’s network of unions, associations, communities, touchpoints, social enterprises and tripartite partners.


SYNTHESISING
Making sense of the data.
The information gathered will be analysed, corroborated and validated to help the Labour Movement to identify new opportunities in our market. This will then allow for an in-depth look at the exact skills and training needed for Singaporeans to tap into these new opportunities.


SHOOTING
Synergising training efforts for working people.
Turning knowledge into strategic action. With the research findings, the Labour Movement will be able to develop relevant skills through training and to adopt a more focused and targeted approach to help Singaporeans make the transition into the jobs of tomorrow.
