Apart from providing quality security training and looking into the development of professionals in the security industry, KnowledgeTree also strives to support learners by providing career guidance after they have completed their security courses.
After taking up the basic security course, KnowledgeTree acknowledges that some learners may face difficulties searching for a job in the security industry and some may face issues with getting a suitable employer to suit their preferred work schedule. As such, we partnered with NTUC’s Employment and Employability Institute (e2i) to provide professional career guidance for our existing learners.
KnowledgeTree’s partnership with e2i aims to mitigate the employment issues that some of our learners are facing and be able to secure a job placement from e2i’s career coaches. With e2i’s services, KnowledgeTree believes this will provide a seamless experience for our learners in their job search as e2i career coaches match the candidates’ job requirements with the most suitable employer.
e2i is the empowering network for workers and employers seeking employment and employability solutions. e2i serves as a bridge between workers and employers, connecting with workers to offer job security through job-matching, career guidance and skills upgrading services, and partnering employers to address their manpower needs through recruitment, training and job redesign solutions. e2i is a tripartite initiative of the National Trades Union Congress set up to support nation-wide manpower and skills upgrading initiatives.
The private security sector in Singapore consists of around 48,000 licensed security officers and over 250 security agencies providing protection services to the public and private areas. Over the years, NTUC has been working closely with the government agencies including statutory boards, industry associations, education institutions, training providers and the Union of Security Employees (USE) to push for a more productive workplace and to continually improve the job of a security officer.
As part of the licensing conditions, security agencies have to pay and train their security officers according to the Progressive Wage Model (PWM) for the security sector. The PWM provides a progression pathway for security officers to earn higher wages as officers become more productive and willing to take on higher job responsibilities.
