Benefits of CCPs

Companies in Singapore can tap on CCPs to reskill mid-career new hires or workers with up to 90% salary support. Long-term unemployed or mature jobseekers aged 40 and above are eligible for higher funding support. WSG offers CCPs in around 30 sectors to support companies in reskilling mid-career individuals to take on a new job roles with good longer term prospects and opportunities.

There are 3 modes of CCPs:


1. Place-and-Train: companies hire jobseekers and put the individuals through on-the-job training (OJT) or industry-recognised training to take on a new growth job role. 

2. Attach-and-Train: companies act as host employers to provide jobseekers with training and work attachments, in growth job roles where there are good prospects for placement. 

3. Job Redesign (JR) Reskilling: companies can send any existing employee for reskilling to take on new or redesigned job roles aligned with Industry Transformation Maps/Jobs Transformation Maps. Growth jobs roles are emerging or good job opportunities with long-term prospects for progression, identified in each sector in response to how the industry is expected to transform over time.
