Singapore, 17 June 2022 – Supply Chain and Logistics Academy (SCALA), a programme partner of Workforce Singapore and YCH Group, on Friday signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Sino Singapore Chongqing Connectivity Solutions (SSCCS), and Chongqing Finance and Economics College (CFEC) to groom logistics and supply chain professionals in Chongqing, China.
The MoU was signed during the China-Singapore (Chongqing) Multi-Modal Distribution and Connectivity (DC) Centre Launch Ceremony, that took place on 17 June 2022, as part of the China-Singapore (Chongqing) Strategic Connectivity Demonstration project. A total of 30 MoUs that covered Capability Enhancement, Business Development and Human Capital Development were signed during the launch.
Singapore’s pioneer supply chain and logistics training academy, SCALA deploys industry-led practices and Experiential Workplace LearningTM to upskill the capabilities of existing logisticians and grow new talents who are keen to pursue their career in the logistics industry.
This MoU is a follow-through initiative from a recent MoU cemented between SSCCS and CFEC in setting up Sino-Singapore International Trade and Supply Chain Industry College (Industry College) to develop a train-and-place programme on international trade and logistics to develop competent talent pool to elevate Chongqing’s supply chain industry.
The three parties will jointly explore the two areas of strategic collaboration where SSCCS and CFEC will leverage on SCALA’s expertise:
“This partnership is a timely collaboration, as the global demand for supply chain talents has grown exponentially. Organisations recognise the importance of supply chain for their success and having trained logisticians to run this part of the business as an imperative. As an industry-led training institute, SCALA aspires to groom talents in the supply chain and logistics field through Experiential Workplace LearningTM so that learners can put theory into practice for more effective learning. As a Singapore based training academy, we are very excited to partner SSCCS and CFEC to bring our expertise to co-develop training curriculums to grow supply chain and logistics talents beyond our shores,” expressed Dr Victor Goh, Chief Executive Officer, SCALA.
