In today’s competitive job market, continuous skill development is crucial. At Intellisoft Training, we specialize in providing Workforce Skills Qualifications (WSQ) courses that align with the Occupational Progressive Wages (OPW) model, ensuring that administrators, drivers, and other professionals in Singapore meet the evolving demands of their industries.
Understanding Occupational Progressive Wages (OPW):
The National Wages Council’s OPW initiative aims to establish a fair and sustainable wage model that encourages skill development and career progression.
Starting from March 1, 2023, employers in Singapore are required to adhere to OPW standards to qualify for work pass renewals or new applications, covering all Singapore citizens and permanent residents in full-time or part-time administrative or driving positions.
OPW Coverage and Requirements:
OPW extends to various administrative roles including Administrative Assistants, Executives, and Supervisors, as well as General and Specialized Drivers.
The model is designed to facilitate a structured career path with corresponding wage increments, underpinned by mandatory training requirements that equip employees with essential skills for their job functions.
Training for Success:
Adhering to OPW training mandates is straightforward with Intellisoft’s extensive range of WSQ-approved courses.
Whether you’re seeking to enhance basic data analytics skills with Excel or aiming to master digital marketing, our programs cater to diverse needs, empowering administrators and other professionals to excel in their roles and contribute to organizational growth.
Training requirements for Administrators Roles under OPW
Employers must ensure that their Singapore citizen and PR administrators and drivers meet the OPW training requirements of attaining:
- At least 1 Workforce Skills Qualification (WSQ) Statement of Attainment, with no restriction on which WSQ course can be taken; or
- An in-house training program.
The training program must be guided by training objectives, training modality, key training tasks and training duration to meet the training requirements.
When required, employers are expected to show supporting documentation and records of workers who attended the trainings.
Through proper training, administrators and drivers will be able to increase their productivity and skillsets.
