SKILLSFUTURE

SkillsFuture is a national movement to provide Singaporeans with the opportunities to develop their fullest potential throughout life, regardless of their starting points. Through this movement, the skills, passion and contributions of every individual will drive Singapore's next phase of development towards an advanced economy and inclusive society. 

 

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.
