Education and Lifelong Learning

To equip every Singaporean with the opportunity to thrive, grow and realise their aspirations, regardless of their starting point in life.

Singapore’s prosperity and growth should continue to remain inclusive and benefit all Singaporeans. To ensure this, we need to focus on equipping everyone with a strong foundation and learning disposition to tap on opportunities to thrive, grow and realise their aspirations.

The Equip Pillar will explore how we, as a society, may:

• Build a strong foundation of sound values and a supportive family environment for every child

• Provide diverse learning models to nurture students of diverse abilities 

• Offer multiple pathways to success by catering to learners’ strengths and interests

• Care for students with special educational needs and build a more inclusive society

• Embrace continuous and lifelong learning beyond school years for everyone

This will create a society where we, as Singaporeans, can forge our own paths while supporting and uplifting those around us. This will enable us to continue to progress as a community, and to live with fulfilment and dignity.

Pillar Leads: 1. Chan Chun Sing, Minister for Education 2. Zaqy Mohamad, Senior Minister of State, Ministry of Defence & Ministry of Manpower 3. Tan Kiat How, Senior Minister of State, Ministry of Communications and Information & Ministry of National Development
