Automation Anywhere, the leader in Robotic Process Automation (RPA) has announced an agreement with the Institute of Technnical Education (ITE) to enable ITE to equip its students with RPA knowledge and skills, and prepares them to join a workforce that increasingly places emphasis on digital transformation.
As part of the partnership, ITE will set up three Centres of Excellence for RPA across its colleges in Central, East and West Singapore, with full working models of RPA software for ITE’s training purposes. With Automation Anywhere’s software and curriculum materials, ITE students and full-time staff will have access to the latest, easy-to-use technology designed to leverage the benefits of RPA.
“As Singapore becomes an increasingly Smart Nation, its workforce must be prepared with future-ready skills—which include working alongside bots and Industry 4.0 technologies like RPA,” said Ron Goh, President, ASEAN and Korea, Automation Anywhere. “We are committed to building the digital ecosystem of Singapore and the region. Our collaboration with ITE marks a huge step forward for Automation Anywhere to train a future-ready workforce with the digital skills necessary for the new era of work.”
According to Ms. Low Khah Gek, Chief Executive Officer, ITE, “As a training provider, we need to work hand-in-hand with the industry to keep pace with the dynamic transformation in the job landscape. Emerging technologies have created new skills sets and challenges, and it is our responsibility to provide exposure and experiences that would make our students innovators, creators and problem solvers in future.”
Emerging technologies are reshaping every industry, as artificial intelligence and automation drive productivity gains and new modes of work. Technologies such as robotic process automation (RPA) are anticipated to create new jobs requiring higher level cognitive thinking and creativity, requirements at which humans uniquely excel and which drive the greatest employee satisfaction.
Automation Anywhere looks forward to more collaborative opportunities with other educational institutions within the country, and is committed to building Singapore’s digital workforce.
