Introduction to HR WSQ

The Singapore Workforce Skills Qualifications (WSQ) is a robust and integrated Continuing Education and Training system developed by the Singapore Workforce Development Agency (WDA). It is a national accreditation system that trains, develops, assesses and recognises workers for competencies which they need to stay employable.

In the area of human resource management, the Human Resource WSQ (HR WSQ) is designed to build industry competencies. Founded on best international practices and validated by industries and employers, the HR WSQ is designed to enable an individual to seek upgrading and career progression in a practical and flexible manner through bite-sized learning.

The HR WSQ system underpins skills formation of HR professionals and people managers and enables them to have greater access to training and the attainment of nationally-recognised certifications. It facilitates skills and career progression for HR professionals and people managers.

HCS Academy is the national Continuing Education and Training (CET) centre that conducts the HR WSQ competency-based training programmes, and is registered with the Council for Private Education (CPE) under the Enhanced Registration Framework (ERF) for its diploma and certification programmes.
