The Biologics Overseas Skills Training (BOOST) Programme is a manpower development programme aimed at building up a pipeline of specialists for Singapore’s biologics manufacturing sector. The BOOST programme is an initiative jointly supported by the Singapore Economic Development Board (EDB), Workforce Singapore (WSG) and Temasek Polytechnic (TP).
BOOST encompasses a first-of-its-kind training model combining both Process Singapore Workforce Skills Qualifications (Process WSQ), conducted at TP, and overseas structured inhouse training with top biologics companies in locations like the United States of America (USA) and Europe. Candidates will complete a 3-month full time training in TP before embarking on 9 to 18 months of overseas training.
The training duration will take up to 21 months and competent candidates will receive a WSQ Higher Certificate in Process Technology (Biologics Manufacturing).
Upon completion of training, successfully candidates are required to serve a Minimum Service Period of 24 months in Singapore based biologics manufacturing companies.
