Service Literacy Programme
This specially crafted programme equips work permit holders in the service industry (hotels, food and beverage and retail) with English communication skills essential for better overall service quality and also prepares them for the Service Literacy Test (SLT) administered by the Singapore Workforce Development Agency (WDA).
From July 2010, work permit holders in these sectors must pass the SLT to qualify or continue to qualify for skilled levy* status, in addition to existing skilled status requirements mandated by the Ministry of Manpower (MOM).
Teacher : Student Ratio is 1:25.
*Not applicable for Malaysian work permit holders
It consists of two tracks:
- SLP 1 - for learners who have minimal basic knowledge in listening and speaking English and need to build their foundation for SLP 2.
- SLP 2 - for learners who have knowledge of English and need to enhance their listening and speaking skills to sit for the Service Literacy Test.
