London School of Business and Finance (LSBF) in Singapore has been officially recognized as a training provider for Singapore’s national government.
The Executive Development & Online (EDO) division at LSBF will now provide courses for training purposes under ‘VITAL’, the shared services arm of the Singapore government. VITAL aggregates common corporate services within the public sector to improve efficiency and enhance service quality under the Ministry of Finance.
LSBF EDO has been delivering training to government agencies since 2014, including the Singapore Police Force (Ministry of Home Affairs) and the National Arts Council (Ministry of Community, Culture & Youth). LSBF will now publish its courses on the ‘Learning Hub’ where more than 40,000 public servants will be able to browse and register for selected courses.
Jason Phua, Head of Executive Development at LSBF, said: “We are extremely proud to have been given this opportunity. To be approved by VITAL, an education provider must demonstrate a good track record of conducting training for government agencies for at least five years.
“This is a testament to our commitment and efforts to delivering quality executive training. Singapore public service agencies are committed to the continuous development of their people and we are excited to be part of this.”
LSBF EDO portfolio of courses ranges from business and accountancy to management and logistics. The approval from VITAL, which administers the learning management system for the online platform providing training in finance, human resources, and procurement, means that the institution is now recognized as a trusted and quality training provider.
LSBF is now listed as a training provider in the ‘Human Resource Management System Learning Hub’, a government-wide system owned by the Public Service Division, Prime Minister’s Office.
Rathakrishnan Govind, Global CEO of LSBF, said: “With LSBF Singapore getting prepared to enter the full government-funded space within 2020, this acceptance into VITAL is a significant step closer to achieving greater success.”
