Anchoring the webinar, Dr Sara Zaman, Lead of NACE@NP at Ngee Ann Polytechnic, delved into the development of a blueprint for structured OJT. Dr Sara also addressed effective coaching methods to engage employees and bridge performance gaps, and proposed strategies to drive teams towards peak performance. Discussions also touched on subsidies, supports, and funding available for structured OJT and coaching initiatives, with potentially up to 90% support. Ms Marlia Mohamed Isnin, Manager of Industry Engagement at Workforce Singapore, provided an overview of the Career Conversion Programme for Aerospace, another valuable avenue for aerospace companies to tap into for support of OJT training.
