'I don't know what I want to learn because I don't know what I should want to learn...'
We hear you and we want to help!
The Legal Industry Framework for Training and Education ("LIFTED") is a professional learning and development initiative by the Singapore Academy of Law ('SAL').
LIFTED enables a user to identify the competencies required for practitioners, in-house counsel and legal support staff and find a corresponding training programme to match his needs, whether in the form of classroom teaching or online media.
Intended to be a 'living' tool, competencies will be added or removed as the profession evolves.
For a start, LIFTED will identify competencies and courses for corporate and commercial law, family law, legal technologies and legal support roles. LIFTED is informed by the broader SkillsFuture learning initiative which supports individuals to adopt a holistic approach to their personal and professional development.
LIFTED will be implemented in phases through 2017, beginning with legal support roles.
