Singapore — From July 1, training provider Kaplan Professional will be suspended from conducting Singapore Workforce Skills Qualifications (WSQ) courses for one year, after “serious lapses” uncovered by audit checks.

In a press release on Tuesday (June 11), SkillsFuture Singapore (SSG) said that apart from suspending Kaplan Professional’s status as an approved training organisation, it will revoke the accreditation and stop funding for all of the training provider’s WSQ courses over the same period.

Responding to media queries, Associate Professor Rhys Johnson — who is the chief operating officer and provost of Kaplan Singapore — said the audit by SSG and Kaplan Professional’s own subsequent review had found that “several trainers adopted assessment practices that were not in compliance with SSG’s standards”.

“We are disappointed that such instances occurred despite a rigorous programme implemented over past months aimed at ensuring such non-compliance could not occur for WSQ courses,” he said. “We apologise sincerely for any inconvenience this may cause impacted learners.”
