Bringing out the best in everyone!

Since 2009 we have helped many children, youths, women and families bring out the best in themselves. We adopt the solution-focused approach in our Study-Work-Family-Life Skills programmes to help clients draw out their best abilities in a positive and safe learning environment.  We  believe that clients are the best experts of themselves and we keep doing what works rather than what does not.

What differentiates us from other businesses is our ability to truly connect with our customers, and provide the exceptional, compassionate service they deserve. Take a look below at the programs available, and don’t hesitate to reach out with questions.

About Us

We do what we love, we love what we do

R&D Education and Training Services was set-up by Josephine Ong who has had more than 27 years of private and public work experiences.  Realising her need for career flexibility and dynamism, and as a full-time working mother, Josephine decided that it was the right time to start living her dream - enjoying both success and significance in her life.  

Following the painful loss of her late twin son, Dylan and an unforeseen breast cancer scare, Josephine applies realistic and practical strategies as well as effectively shares real-life stories of success with her customers.

R&D Education and Training Services was started for that purpose - allowing people to see themselves in a positive light, building on their unique strengths and competencies while coping with day-to-day challenges at different life stages. 

Our focus is always on building an efficient and results-driven relationship. The theme for 2021 is "The Joy of Learning" and we are excited to bring more impactful and engaging programmes to all.
