Hear from our Scholars
HOON DING YU2017 Scholarship Recipient
"Having been rotated to different divisions across both agencies, the SSG-WSG scholarship stood out for me as it provided me with the opportunity to better understand how both agencies play complementary roles in helping Singaporeans on their lifelong learning and employability journey. Each rotation allowed me to develop expertise in different domains and has been valuable for my career development."
AYE AYE MON2017 Scholarship Recipient
"There is an open culture in SSG-WSG, where people are receptive to feedback. You will find it easy to spark spontaneous conversations with your superiors and colleagues. There is generally a good balance of work and play, with various staff events happening regularly. I try to join whenever I can, as it is a great chance to meet new people and build rapport with your teammates. Of course, we work as hard as we play: my colleagues always go the extra mile to deliver in their roles. Overall, it is a vibrant organisation."
Michelle Han Jia Li2014 Scholarship Recipient
"The SSG-WSG scholarship has provided me with dual opportunities to be posted to divisions across both agencies with vastly different job scopes, yet serving synergistic purposes to promote lifelong learning and improve the employability of our local workforce. I've also had the opportunity to join the Learning Movement, an inter-agency committee to bring fun learning activities to SSG-WSG colleagues."
CLAIRE CHEW2015 Scholarship Recipient
"Aspiring scholars should join SSG-WSG if they want to better the lives of fellow Singaporeans as our core work directly supports them in their employment outcomes and in enhancing their employability through skills upgrading. Scholars can expect to be challenged in their critical thinking skills as we constantly work on shaping the rapidly-changing employment and training landscape.
We also place strong emphasis on promoting a culture of lifelong learning through our year-long SSG-WSG joint activities where staff are encouraged to learn at work and beyond work, even as we are hard at work fulfilling SSG/WSG's mission."
