Shell Singapore has rolled out a new future-ready coursework, as part of efforts to upskill its workforce. 

Known as "UpSkill ShellSG", the initiative aims to deepen the continuous learning and improvement culture with a focus on the skills required to fulfill customers’ changing energy needs, Shell Singapore announced yesterday (15 September).

It includes a range of resources developed internally, and will be complemented by a SkillsFuture coursework across 12 curated themes.

For example, staff working at Shell's manufacturing sites will be able to upgrade themselves with courses under the theme of 'digital literacy'; while executives who are keen to enhance their knowledge of changing energy needs, liveable cities and sustainability solutions will be able to choose from courses under the theme of 'urban solutions'.

At the same time, courses under the theme of 'adaptive skills' will be well-suited for all employees in picking up the relevant skills needed to better navigate the complex changing landscapes.

The courses will be made available to employees from later in September.

Commenting on this, Aw Kah Peng, Chairman, Shell Companies in Singapore, said: "Shell Singapore has a deep culture of continuous improvement and learning. We encourage everyone to adopt a 'learner's mindset'. Never has this mindset been more relevant and urgent, as we navigate change amidst the energy transition.

"Singapore has long been a talent hub for the Shell Group, and we have thrived on a strong Singapore core. With UpSkill ShellSG, we want to keep challenging ourselves to take learning to the next level."

To enable the initiative, Shell will channel S$10mn received from the Jobs Support Scheme to fund UpSkill ShellSG, complementing its own internal resources.
