The National Centre of Excellence for Workplace Learning (NACE) was established in 2018 to help companies level-up workplace learning and capability development.
When employees are able to apply deep skills, organisations are in a better position to respond to a rapidly-changing environment. NACE helps companies address challenges systematically and build the strengths within the companies so that they emerge stronger.
Companies can identify the skills that are lacking, and the jobs that need to be redesigned. With coherent processes in place, capabilities and skills can be practised and honed at the workplace, supporting a company’s growth in competencies and competitiveness.
Employers get to retain their skilled personnel because their employees experience job satisfaction. Businesses become ‘fail-proof’, and employees get to safeguard their jobs.
With domain expertise adapting Swiss and German methodologies, NACE can support companies’ adoption of best-in-class practices for workplace learning. Services from NACE include workplace and mentorship training, consultancy and skills analysis.
The National Wages Council (NWC), in its latest recommendations, under Point 11, recommends that employers develop a training plan that meets their current and future requirements, drawing reference from the relevant Skills Frameworks. Employers that have done so should now bring forward planned training, putting employees’ downtime to productive use.
NWC is urging employers who have yet to develop training plans to seek help from various organisations and associations, amongst which is the National Centre of Excellence for Workplace Learning (NACE). You can reach NACE for help on how move forward at firstname.lastname@example.org.
