The Professional Conversion Programme (PCP) for Southeast Asia Ready Talents integrates job-matching and reskilling to help PMET jobseekers gain new skills and prepare them for new job roles in Sales & Marketing, Trade Finance, Account, Franchise, Product and Supply Chain Management within the Southeast Asian region.
The PCP is administered by the Singapore Business Federation (SBF). Through a Place-and-Train mode, participating companies will employ the trainees before they embark on rigorous training comprising facilitated / classroom training, and structured On-the-Job-Training (OJT).
The duration of the PCP is 1 year, comprising structured On-the-Job Training (OJT) with the hiring company, 45 hours of facilitated classroom training and 45 hours of mentoring and networking opportunities provided by SBF. A unique aspect of this PCP is that the coverage of the facilitated classroom training modules will be customized to the region where the PCP candidate will be posted to.
