The CET Centre delivers more than just training. They need to be champions of Continuing Education and Training, by being a flag bearer and actively reaching out to both employers and the workforce in the industries that they operate in. They are expected to provide some form of screening, career and training advice to individuals signing up for their programmes. Besides this, the CET Centre is also expected to monitor the effectiveness of their training and to track the performance of the individual at work upon completion of training-such as whether the trainee has applied the skills learnt and acquired at their workplace, whether the trainee has been retained in the job, and whether the trainee has performed well on the job.
In addition, we also collaborate with our CET partners on Place-and-Train programmes, a combination of structured classroom training and on-the job training. Such programmes are aimed at encouraging individuals who are looking to switch professions to join the ICT sector or take on different job roles within the ICT sector.
All these are part of the larger effort to ensure that the training received by trainees is relevant, so that local ICT professionals continue to be equipped with industry-relevant skills required at the workplace.
