SkillsFuture Singapore (SSG) has partnered German engineering firm Bosch Rexroth to open a training centre for Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs), and launched a rapid upskilling programme – or bootcamp – for engineers. The Bosch Rexroth Regional Centre will be set up by the fourth quarter of 2020 and will be supported by SP, SSG and JTC. It will anchor the technology, skills and talent needs of advanced manufacturing companies in the Jurong Innovation District and beyond. SMEs can also co-develop training content with SP in cutting-edge technologies, and the centre will provide mentorship and skills training to the companies as part of proof-of-concept projects. SP lecturers will also gain expertise at the centre, before extending the training to companies. In addition, a pipeline of Industry 4.0 specialists will be trained and certified by the Singaporean-German Chamber of Industry and Commerce at the centre. As for the new upskilling programme, the SkillsFuture Work-Learn Bootcamp for Engineer 4.0 is open to fresh graduates and mid-career individuals. The eight-week programme delivered by SP & TP integrates real-life industry scenarios into hands-on projects. It will include role-play, case-study discussions and simulations.
