Taxi leaders volunteer to enhance learning process by helping to co-facilitate classes and provide peer support to fellow cabbies
1) As of today, some 1,500 cabbies have completed the customised SkillsFuture for Digital Workplace (SFDW)1 programme that was introduced following the formation of the Training Committee for Cabbies – a joint initiative by ComfortDelGro Taxi and National Taxi Association (NTA). ComfortDelGro Taxi had committed to sending 10,000 cabbies for the programme by 2020, supported by partners like NTUC’s e2i (Employment and Employability Institute) and NTUC LearningHub (NTUC LHUB).
2) The Training Committee for Cabbies – which was set up to provide relevant training to help cabbies keep up with technological changes and seize opportunities in the industry, is taking one step further by sending NTA taxi leaders for further training so that these leaders can provide peer support to their fellow cabbies and help co-facilitate future classes.
1,500 cabbies have benefited from the SFDW programme
3) The customised SFDW programme was the first training programme developed under the Training Committee for Cabbies as it was identified that digital skills are most needed by and relevant to cabbies. About 1,500 cabbies had gone for the training so that they learn how to better make use of technological tools that were available to them, e.g., ComfortDelGro Taxi Apps, its Cabby Portal and Mobile Data Terminal (MDT) and other mobile apps.
