The Infocomm Media Development Authority (IMDA) authority of Singapore and DBS Bank have officially launched a program that envisions to provide specialist technology skills to professionals in the banking sector. The co-developed program, Skills Enhancement and Education (SEED), was launched last week.
The 12-month long training program focuses on Information Security, DevOps, and Infrastructure Development. It includes on-the-job training and the participation of industry leaders to aid in the better understanding on how banks operate in a digital environment.
DBS aims to hire the best performers of the SEED program as the company’s future tech leaders.
The SEED program is a part of the TechSkills Accelerator (TeSA) initiative whose goal is to create a skilled and competitive ICT workforce in Singapore.
