SINGAPORE - The first of three interactive pop-up roadshows in the form of a learning cafe popped up at Chevron House in Raffles Place on Tuesday.

As part of the Singapore Workforce Development Agency's (WDA) Lifelong Learning campaign, the Learning Cafe will be open from April 21 to 25, said the agency in a statement.

Those keen to pick up or improve on a new skill can read through 12 bite-sized learning modules at their own pace, over a cup of coffee.

They can either scan the QR codes available or visit www.learnnow.sg. There are also tools such as the Individual Learning Portfolio, which is a career analysis and job matching tool.

There are also various activities such as interactive games to understand the parts of a jet engine, coffee making and napkin folding.

Acting Minister for Manpower, Mr Tan Chuan-Jin was the Guest of Honour at the unveiling and tried his hands at coffee-making and acquired some Chinese workplace literacy skills through one of the learning modules.

The upcoming learning caf├ęs will take place at Bedok in July and at Jurong in September.
