ENHANCED SUPPORT TRAINING
For a limited time only, employers in the food services, and retail sectors will be able to tap on more than $32 million in SkillsFuture Singapore (SSG) funding to upgrade their workers’ skills. The enhanced training support package is part of the $4 billion support package the Government announced in the Budget in February 2020. Starting 1 April 2020, employers who send their workers for selected programmes, will receive an enhanced Absentee Payroll (AP) support at 90 per cent of the workers' hourly basic salary, capped at $10 per hour, up from 80 per cent.
This SSG package is timely to help employers defray operating costs as well as upskill their workers, offering a mutual benefit for both employers and employees.
