Deliveroo SG plans to upskill 1,000 riders by 2021

To date, 300 Deliveroo riders have completed their training from a choice of 700 free online classes.

Deliveroo Singapore announced its plans to have 1,000 of its riders complete at least one training course under its learning programmes by 2021.

Riders are at the heart of all that we do, so we regularly engage our riders through various initiatives, including providing upskilling and training opportunities. We are committed to supporting our riders in their professional and educational development and are delighted that many of our riders have signed up for upskilling and training courses in the past,” said Deliveroo Singapore General Manager Sarah Tan in a press statement.

The riders and their families can access 700 free online courses through the food delivery company’s collaboration with education platform OpenClassrooms. Deliveroo has also recently added training from Adept Academy to its growing list of offerings.

These courses include language, e-commerce, business management, and programming and coding, and are held in varying lengths from an hour to several months.

Participants can receive Certificates of Completion from these courses, which they can use for their future job applications.

Since 2019, approximately 300 Deliveroo riders in Singapore have completed at least one course from the OpenClassrooms platform.

In January 2021, Deliveroo partnered with Central Singapore CDC to offer a tailored SkillsFuture Advice workshop that covered key trends in the workplace and matched riders’ desired skill sets. Deliveroo also invested $9,000 in a funding scheme for riders to subsidise part of their SkillsFuture course fees to encourage lifelong learning.

Where to invest your millions in real estate
Amongst locations, realtors suggest the Core Central Region.   Individuals seeking shelter in the real estate market amidst the rising inflation must consider three things before deciding where to invest their millions in.   George Tan, managing director of Savills Digital Residential Marketing, said one of these factors is location.    Tan said buyers should consider areas which are highly demanded and well located—easy access to prestigious or international schools, MRT, malls and food and beverage (F&B) establishments. All these will contribute to good rental demand.   PropNex realtor, Andy Lim, echoed this, adding that buyers should particularly invest in properties within one kilometre of the prestigious schools.
