SINGAPORE – An e-learning app that provides small, practical content for training and development was launched on Wednesday, November 17th.
Developed by NTUC LearningHub, the Learning eXperience Platform application currently has more than 75,000 courses.
It was launched at the NTUC Ordinary Delegates Conference, which was held in a hybrid format.
The app can be downloaded for free, but a subscription is required to access the courses.
The subscription fee is $ 10 per month, but union members only need to pay $ 5 per month.
However, all subscribers can use their SkillsFuture credit to fully offset these amounts.
The app can also serve as an online learning management system for companies with company training committees.
These companies can create job-specific content, put it on the platform, and track the progress of their employees.
During the conference, Deputy Prime Minister Heng Swee Keat said of the app: “This is an example of how the labor movement brings together different parts of its ecosystem more comprehensively – driving transformation. and building capacity through company training committees, and helping workers develop (application). “
The NTUC said that with other unions it has formed company training committees with 781 companies to date.
These committees help workers upgrade their skills and gain better employment prospects through on-the-job training.
NTUC and unions have also helped 130 companies embark on an operational and technology roadmap to transform their businesses and workforce.
The roadmap is specific to the needs and industry of each company. It aims to help companies develop short, medium and long term business strategies and training plans, including identifying skills gaps and other needs, and an action plan to address them. .
The new app complements these efforts by supporting worker upgrading and business transformation, NTUC said.
NTUC General Secretary Ng Chee Meng said the labor movement will do more in the area of digital innovation.
The launch of the new app “marks our commitment that NTUC will be a training catalyst, to support workers not only in their current jobs, but also in their employability in the future,” Ng said.
