Singapore – NEST Institute, a leading skills training institute on emerging technologies and their industrial applications, today announces a strategic partnership with Singapore-based ClassDo, a “Future of Work” platform for creative workforce skilling.

NEST complements this by providing diverse learning pathways, enabling employees to acquire a wide range of skills in emerging technologies on a just-in-time basis. 

  • Learn Well : Employees need to be creative problem solvers.
