Industry Consultative Networks
The ERB sets up Industry Consultative Networks (ICNs) of different industries to strengthen partnership and communication with our strategic partners. Representatives of employer associations, trade unions and professional bodies, with insight and commitment to manpower development, are invited to join. ICN members render expert advice on market demand, skills requirements and training needs of the respective industries. They also advise on the design of existing courses and the development of new courses to ensure that the training portfolio caters timely for market changes. ICN members also foster communication between the industries and the ERB and assist the ERB to disseminate course information to practitioners.
To date, 22 ICNs have been established. As the development of courses and services warrants, the ERB shall invite veteran practitioners of different industries to join the ICNs.
