The Career Support Programme (CSP) is a salary support programme to encourage employers to hire eligible Singapore Citizen Professionals, Managers, Executives and Technicians (PMETs). CSP is part of the Adapt and Grow initiative.
The CSP has been enhanced effective from 1 April 2017 to support eligible Singapore Citizen PMETs with salary support up to a cap of $42,000, for up to 18 months. This is to encourage more Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs) to come on board.

Employers can send their new hire for any external funded course based on prevailing SSG rates and existing processes accredited by SkillsFuture Singapore (SSG) that is listed on SkillsConnect portal (www.skillsconnect.gov.sg) or SkillsFuture Credit portal (www.skillsfuture.sg/credit). They can search for a course based on the training needs of the new hire. Alternatively, employers may submit an OJT plan as part of the new hire’s training requirement.
