September 12, 2019

Singapore Polytechnic and the Token Economy Association have partnered to offer a series of courses aimed at developing programmers to better satisfy Singapore’s demand for blockchain and fintech savvy professionals.

Singaporean education institution Singapore Polytechnic (SP) is to work with the Token Economy Association (TEA), a self-regulatory organization, on a series of courses to develop human resources for the country’s fintech and blockchain sectors.

As reported on Vulcan Post, SP and TEA will jointly develop and provide the FinTech Deep Dive Series.

Leaders in Fintech and Blockchain Tapped for Series

Content for the FinTech Deep Dive Series will be curated by TEA, targeting software programmers and working members of the tech industry.  Courses will be designed by Dr. Ernie Teo, who previously worked as a Blockchain Research Scientist at IBM. Launching the series will be a course focused on blockchain technology.

The series builds on the two organizations’ FinTech-Blockchain (Beginner) course, which was introduced in February this year and precedes the introduction of the FinTech-Blockchain (Intermediate) course.  Chairman of TEA, Chia Hock Lai, stated that graduates of both courses would be competent blockchain developers with the deep dive to further enhance their capabilities.


Blockchain Professionals to Gain Lead in Budding Sector

The FinTech Deep Dive Series was created with the express purpose of overcoming a shortage in fintech- and blockchain-capable professionals experienced both in Singapore and around the globe.  The country has committed to becoming a leader in the up and coming blockchain industry with a collection of courses targeting local talent.

SP and TEA have both joined in a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with the Banking and Financial Services Union, Employment and Employability Institute, Enterprise Singapore and Workforce Singapore, concerning training fintech and blockchain human resources and populating the industry in Singapore.
