Udemy Partners with the Civil Service College Singapore to Deliver Access to 2,500+ Online Courses to Public Officers

SAN FRANCISCO, July 19, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Udemy, the global marketplace for learning and teaching online, has entered into a partnership with Civil Service College (CSC) Singapore to provide Singaporean public officers with access to a curated collection of more than 2,500 online courses. This partnership will allow public officers to take courses to uplevel their skills in areas of Leadership and Management, Data Analytics, and Productivity, among others. The partnership with Udemy is the first such collaboration CSC Singapore has engaged in with an online learning provider.

Recognizing that the traditional model of face-to-face training is no longer enough to help public officers keep pace with changing market demands, Singapore is taking steps to transform into an agile digital government. Udemy online courses will allow public officers just-in-time access to the latest skills their jobs require.

We are proud to partner with a forward-thinking government organization like Civil Service College Singapore,” said Kevin H. Johnson, Udemy’s CEO. “CSC clearly understands the value of investing in its workforce, as the skills required to do nearly every job continue to rapidly change. Udemy is excited to enable the upskilling and reskilling of public officers in Singapore.”

“Investing in our people and their growth is of utmost importance,” said Ms Ong Toon Hui, Dean and CEO, CSC. “Partnering with Udemy to provide our public officers with the curated courses they need to upskill and reach their career goals is a great complement to our existing offerings and a great way to help transform CSC for the future.”
