Colleges and Universities should integrate lifelong learning programs into existing degrees structures. This would be done by creating potable credentials that follow a student throughout their later career while making training and professional developments key parts of faculty career paths and graduate training. This policy would better prepare students for a dynamic work environment which requires an ever-changing skill set.
The National University of Singapore (NUS) is expanding its lifelong learning initiative which was launched in May 2017, allowing all alumni to take up to two modules for free over a three-year period. There was an overwhelming response with more than 8,000 applications for 404 places in 79 courses received during the pilot phase.
