What Is it?
The SGUnited Skills programme is a full-time training programme ranging from six to 12 months. The programme will comprise certifiable courses delivered by Continuing Education and Training (CET) Centres, including Institutes of Higher Learning. The training courses are designed in partnership with the industry to help trainees acquire industry-relevant skills that can improve their employability. Trainees will also have the chance to apply the skills learnt during the programme, through opportunities like workplace immersions and industry projects.
Trainees will also benefit from employment facilitation efforts offered by training providers. To facilitate transition to employment as and when job opportunities are present, the SGUnited Skills programme will be conducted in a modular format.
Trainees will also receive a training allowance of $1,200 per month for the duration of the programme, to cover basic subsistence expenses1. Course fees will be highly subsidised, to keep the SGUnited Skills programme affordable. Individuals can use their SkillsFuture Credit to offset the course fees.
This programme will be rolled out progressively from July 2020. For more information, please click here.

CSG recipients will receive a top-up of $400 and SIRS recipients will receive a top-up of $200. They will receive the SGUnited Skills training allowance of $1,200 after those payouts are completed.
