As part of the Adapt and Grow initiative to provide greater support for mid-career Professionals, Managers, Executives and Technicians (PMET) jobseekers, the Workforce Singapore Agency (WSG) has developed a new Professional Conversion Programme (PCP) for MICE Executives.
The PCP for MICE Executives aims to attract new entrants and help mid-career PMETs re-skill with the necessary competencies to embark on a career in the MICE and Events sector. It will include a structured training plan to facilitate and enhance the employability for those looking to switch their careers and take on jobs in the MICE and Events sector.
The PCP for MICE Executives will also help MICE and Events companies tap on additional sources of manpower and meet their manpower needs by providing mid-career switchers with an opportunity to enter the MICE and Events profession. Through structured classroom and OJT, companies are also able to align training according to their specific business needs.
