Siti Aishah Ahmad •  Oct 21, 2021

It’s no secret that it’s been rather difficult for Singaporeans to gain jobs or move forward in their careers thanks to Covid-19, among many other reasons. However, where there’s will, there’s always a way. Whether we’re learning to improve ourselves or to apply the skills learned to a job, it’s important that we keep learning! It is never too late to learn new skills and increase our knowledge for employability and of course, for ourselves.

Learn New Skills & Secure Jobs With MENDAKI SENSE


If you’re looking for new ways to upgrade yourself beyond the classrooms of our teens, MENDAKI SENSE’s programme might just be for you.
