Abstract: This paper evaluates Singapore’s lifelong learning (LLL) ecosystem beyond the SkillsFuture Credit Scheme in comparison to South Korea and Finland. Together with input from semi-structured interviews which examine the relationship Singaporeans have with learning, it extracts policy lessons that could boost Singapore’s trajectory towards becoming a holistic learning society. The results reveal that policy improvements can be made in the area of regulations, formal recognition, funding, availability of adult-focused educational institutions, spaces of learning at work and the presence of a social and cultural environment that promotes LLL. On the more institutional front, we recommend that the MOE invest more intentional efforts into carving out a committee dedicated to promoting recreational learning, a student care committee under the Student Development Curriculum Division to create a more interactive CCE syllabus and allow for recognition of skills regardless of where they were acquired. On the ground, the MOE should also deepen its collaboration with its community partners in particular on top of employers, training providers and adult education professionals to create a robust care system for adult learners, who are juggling many demands at home and work.
