About Healthcare

Academy is a collaboration among Healthcare Services Employees’ Union (HSEU),
Employability and Employment Institute (e2i) and NTUC LearningHub (LHUB).
Healthcare Academy endeavours to:

  • Support
    continuous learning for healthcare workers, especially those affected by
    industry restructuring, job re-design and technological disruptions
  • Provide
    employment opportunities for displaced workers from other sectors to work in
    the healthcare sector through robust job matching process
  • Equip
    healthcare workers with relevant adaptive skills, technology skills and
    technical skills, to be future ready for business transformation

Academy was birth forth in August 2018 when we envisage the need for healthcare
workers to be more agile and adaptive to the changes brought on by
technological disruption and demographic changes. We started our journey by
addressing one very fundamental change element which is the mind, helping
workers to move from a fixed mindset to a growth mindset. We developed our
first programme to help workers develop a positive mindset for the workplace.
Since then, we have learned and grew, and more products and solutions have been
added to our offerings.
