The Singapore Workforce Skills Qualifications (WSQ) system offers a systematic path for individuals to equip themselves with relevant competencies so that they can upgrade their skills, enhance their employability and stay relevant.
WSQ builds on the work achieved through previous work on industry-designed competency standards developed in the National Skills Recognition System (NSRS). While NSRS intergrates with WSQ,WSQ is more comprehensive. It comprises a full competency map covering all occupations in an industry section (for example retail) with clear certification points, career development and training pathways, and nationally recognised qualifications. The WSQ industry skills framework comprise a generic platform of employability skills and "know-how" to work and progress in the industry, and specific occupation skills aligned to individual jobs or job families.
