Workforce too need to be equipped with more knowledge and skills for only competent workforce can meet various job challenges, demands, and opportunities. The current world of work is characterised by rapid and uncertain economic changes coupled with technological advancement, requiring the need to train and retrain workforce in order to equip them with the latest changes of technologies, contemporary skills requirements and other up to date competencies.
