Mark Chay on SkillsFuture Singapore Agency and Skills Development Levy amendment bills

05:41 Min

During a Parliamentary debate on enhanced powers for SkillsFuture Singapore (SSG) to investigate and enforce against abuse of its funding and false advertising about its programmes, NMP Mark Chay noted that the definition of advertisement in the relevant Bill seemed relatively narrow. He asked for clarity on other types of marketing such as roadshows or in-person hard-selling. Mr Chay also said training providers should not be allowed to engage commission-based recruitment agents for SSG-funded courses. On the appointment of inspectors, he wanted to know what qualifications they will be required to have and what measures there will be to guard against any abuse of their powers. Mr Chay spoke in the House on Tuesday (Jan 10).
