Aligned to the Training and Adult Education Industry Transformation Map (TAE ITM), the TAE Industry Digital Plan (IDP) is part of the SMEs Go Digital programme which aims to make going digital simple for SMEs. The TAE IDP provides a step-by-step guide on the digital solutions local SMEs in the TAE industry can adopt at each stage of their growth.

The Infocomm Media Development Authority (IMDA), in partnership with SkillsFuture Singapore and the industry, has jointly developed the TAE IDP. The IDP will continue to be updated over time as the industry progresses and newer, more relevant technologies are introduced.

Larger enterprises in the TAE industry can also use the digital roadmap to guide your digital journey.

Digital Roadmap

You can refer to the Digital Roadmap of the IDP as a guide to assess your digital readiness and identity opportunities for going digital and training to raise employees’ digital skills.
