ISOC.SG was invited to and attended the NTUC roundtable on ICT where the Labour Movement signed memoranda of understanding (MOUs) with three new U Associate (UA) partners on 12 March 2018 with AI Singapore, (ISC)2 Singapore Chapter and Tech Singapore Advocate, as part of ramping up efforts to address the growing challenges and manpower needs in the industry.
The number of ICT UA partners now stands at 12, up from five last year. With these partnerships, the Labour Movement can now reach out to 40,000 professionals in the ICT sector.
Senior Minister of State (SMS) for Communications and Information Dr Janil Puthucheary also had a discussion with various ICT UA leaders on how the Labour Movement can work together with the UA and tripartite partners to grow the ICT workforce. Topics included challenges such as shortage of skilled manpower in the ICT sector and how to overcome them.
