The Singapore Workforce Development Agency (WDA) is a key driver of the SkillsFuture movement which marks a major new phase of investment in our people to empower them so that they can maximise their potential and realise their aspirations regardless of their starting points.

Working through collaborations with employers, industry associations, the Union, training organisations and other government agencies, WDA will be creating policies and programmes under SkillsFuture aimed at opening opportunities through the cultivation of passion for lifelong learning and knowledge, enhancing appreciation for mastery of skills and opening avenues to gainful and rewarding careers so that people can find fulfilment in their work and enterprises thrive.
Thus empowering a dynamic, vibrant Singapore ready for the future.
We believe that Our People are at the heart of this, as SkillsFuture requires a concerted effort from every one to work. So, besides developing our employees' potential through our Learning and Development programmes, we are committed to create a friendly and conducive work environment that allows our staff to enjoy Work-life Harmony.
WDA’s culture is Values-Based and guided by our P.O.I.N.T. values.
Our ‘P.O.I.N.T’ values shape the way we conduct ourselves, interact and engage our internal & stakeholders and the larger community.
