The Talent Development Team formulates and implements policies and initiatives to grow a pipeline of future ready workforce by infusing design into our national skills sets. The policies and initiatives aim to capitalise on the growth opportunities in the 4th Industrial Revolution and to address challenges in skills gaps, using a multiple-pronged approach to cater to the needs of both designers and non-designers across General Education (GE), Pre-Employment Training (PET) and Continuing Education and Training (CET).
This position reports to the Deputy Director (Talent Development). In this role, you will lead the “Talent Policy and Planning” team, in the areas of research and formulation of policies and strategies to grow design talent in both the design and non-design sectors. Your team will also oversee the management of primary and secondary research, course evaluation of design programmes and the development and adoption of the Skills Framework for Design.
