SITLEARN Professional Development is the Singapore Institute of Technology’s lifelong learning unit established on 1 April 2017. LEARN stands for Lifelong Education for Adaptability, Relevance and Nimbleness. SITLEARN Professional Development caters to working adults who are keen to upgrade their skills, and offers multiple pathways for individuals to gain access to higher education learning.
Building on SIT’s reputation as the pioneer of the applied pathway model for Autonomous Universities in Singapore, SITLEARN Professional Development’s courses emphasise the integration of theory with hands-on application, and are delivered by SIT faculty, thought leaders and supported by industry experts.
Since its inception, SITLEARN Professional Development has been offering courses in targeted niche industries namely Urban Solutions, Allied Health, Cybersecurity, Process Safety and Engineering.
SITLEARN Professional Development believes that to develop relevant and timely courses, it needs to listen and better understand the needs of industry through experimentation, outreach and industry engagement. This is done by working closely with partners such as trade associations, agencies and societies as well as taking guidance from the Ministries.
In support of Singapore’s national SkillsFuture movement, SITLEARN Professional Development aims to be the trusted partner of lifelong learning in Singapore. With the vision of SIT’s move to the Punggol Digital District, there will be greater synergies between SIT and the industry where its co-location in a business park will allow for greater collaboration opportunities to equip working professionals to be adaptable, relevant and nimble for Singapore’s workforce.
