Enhance your employability with Critical Core Skills (CCS) as identified by SkillsFuture Singapore

 

In today’s competitive labour market, individuals who demonstrate a combination of soft and hard skills are seen as talents in demand.

To support holistic workforce skills development, SkillsFuture Singapore has consulted closely with Singapore employers to formulate 16 Critical Core Skills (CCS) competencies which are deemed essential soft skills at the workplace.

The competencies are categorised under 3 clusters of skills:

Thinking Critically
Cognitive skills needed for broad and creative thinking, which help individuals see connections and opportunities.
Staying relevant
Effectively managing your personal brand and well-being while keeping up-to-date with trends that impact work and daily life.
Interacting with Others
The ability to communicate effectively and learn from others, exchange ideas and build a shared understanding of a problem.

“Those with the right skills will be able to seize opportunities and enjoy corresponding rewards, while those who are unable to adjust and adapt will face even greater challenges,” said Deputy Prime Minister Lawrence Wong.

In tech-savvy Singapore, adapting to new skills is especially crucial for surviving and thriving in the changing job landscape. Against this backdrop, SIM collaborated with Professor Howard Gardner from the Harvard Graduate School of Education, and Senior Director of Project Zero, to co-design a programme that would help mid-career professionals unlearn dated approaches and produce quality work in uncertain times.

The programme incorporates Project Zero principles and ideas in a Singaporean context, with 7 SIM Associate Lecturers trained under the programme before becoming certified to conduct the Critical Core Skills Programme.
