Debate on strategy to emerge stronger from COVID-19: Wan Rizal on closing the skills and practice gap

(Updated: )

Learning new skills is critical but being able to quickly put them into practice is just as important. Making that point in Parliament on Thursday (Oct 15), MP Wan Rizal called for more apprenticeship programmes and giving workers more flexibility or even an allowance to pursue new skills. He also said Singapore’s education system has become more holistic, with a shift in focus from academic subjects to the arts, physical education and music.
