What will vocational training look like in the future and what challenges does the labour market hold for future skilled workers? This topic determined the training for managers from Russia and Kazakhstan who travelled to Singapore for this purpose. The study trip was organised by the INTAMT Academy and took place from 25 October to 1 November. At the Singapore Polytechnic International (SPI), the participants were given a presentation of the Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) programme. Furthermore, the research activities as well as the dual study programme at SPI were explained. Head of Education Development at SPI Helene Leong told how the teaching staff is trained. Next, the leaders visited ITE Education Services (ITEES), an offshoot of the Institute of Technical Education (ITE), to discuss the latest developments in training methods at the institute and how workers and the educational institution interact. Entitled “The Education System in Singapore. The organisation of learning processes and methods at the university”, a presentation was given at Nynyang Technological University. Thomas Chong from the International Relations Department at Republic Polytechnic addressed the methods and technologies in problem-based learning – another important topic at Russian and Kazakh educational institutions. In the practical part of the training, the guests visited Singapore’s largest technopark. Afterwards, the programme included a visit to Ngee Ann Polytechnic (NP), where the interaction of educational institutions with high-tech companies was highlighted.
