Learning to be able to keep learning

At the Straits Times Education Forum 2022 on the evolving role of universities, held in partnership with SMU last week, Education Minister Chan Chun Sing threw up a challenge to Singapore's institutions of higher learning. To keep up with the times, they must do more than produce fresh school-leavers for the job market. The education system must pay attention to those who have already graduated and retrain about half a million adult learners each year. The retraining and reskilling of graduates and postgraduates need not be limited to Singapore, as universities can connect students and graduates with the best opportunities available in the world through their global networks.
