SkillsFuture has been designed to help Singaporeans from all backgrounds keep up with the changing workplace and strive towards a brighter and more confident future. Here are 5 ways in which SkillsFuture helps YOU own a better future.

  1. SkillsFuture: There’s Something for Everybody

    Are you a student starting out in life? Are you fresh out of the university, working and dreaming for a better future? Or are you a mid-career professional? SkillsFuture has plenty of options for all of you. It even has multiple benefits for employers and training providers, so it’s an all-inclusive programme.

  2. Variety of Resources

    SkillsFuture has a variety of resources for professionals to upskill. For example:

    There are also highly subsidised courses for every Singaporean to hone specific skills at any point in their life.

  3. Helps Learn New Skills

    SkillsFuture offers Enhanced Internship opportunities for students to learn and apply new skills. There are also short courses comprising several modules to help reskill the unemployed people or those with outdated skills. SkillsFuture even assists mid-career professionals to switch to a different domain or expand their skill set by learning a new skill.

     

  4. Helps Upgrade Skills

    Updating your skills can not only help you prepare for the job requirements of the future but also become more efficient in your current job. Initiatives like SkillsFuture for Digital Workplace aim at helping every Singaporean understand trends and evolving technology. Cash prizes are awarded to encourage workers to upgrade by earning WSQ qualifications.

     

  5. Helps Deepen Skills

    SkillsFuture Study Awards provides additional support for Singaporeans to deepen skills needed to maximise one’s potential and take on jobs for the future. The award also supports people, who already have deep skills in one domain to develop specialist skills in other domain(s). Mastering a skill also makes one eligible for Singapore’s Highest Skills Award - SkillsFuture Fellowships accompanied by cash prizes.
