Singapore launches Skills Framework for Design

Posted on: 15. June 2020

Jointly developed by three government agencies in Singapore –  DesignSingapore Council, SkillsFuture Singapore and Workforce Singapore the Skills Framework for Design aims to nurture a design-empowered workforce to meet demands of the future economy.

Shared with the other Cities of Design during the sub-network meeting in Detroit last Septemer, the Skill Framework for Design is a resource that contains:

  • key sector information
  • career pathways
  • job roles
  • existing and emerging skills
  • as well as relevant training programmes required for the job roles.


The Framework offers a common skills language for individuals, employers and training providers. It was produced to enable individuals to assess their career interests, identify relevant training programmes and prepare for desired job roles. Employers would be able to better identify relevant skills and invest in employee training to maintain a strong talent pool. Training providers can use the framework to gather insights about sector trends and emerging skills in demand, enabling them to design programmes that address industry needs.
