Benefits of CCPs

Mid-Career Individuals in Singapore can undergo industry-recognised training with up to 90% salary support. WSG offers CCPs in around 30 sectors to help mid-career jobseekers or existing employees reskill and take on new job roles with good prospects and opportunities for progression.

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 sends an existing employee for reskilling, to take on growth job roles aligned to 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.

    #CCPs are geared towards helping mid-career individuals acquire skills to make a switch in their careers. Hence, there is a requirement for career conversion when mid-career individuals undergo a CCP. However, individuals who have a continuous employment gap of at least two (2) years prior to the programme's commencement will be allowed to apply for CCP job roles similar to their previous jobs.

    Beyond the general eligibility criteria, other course-specific entry criteria and employer-specific shortlisting processes may apply for different CCPs. In general, individuals applying for CCPs should not be shareholders, immediate ex-employees of company or related entities, or be related to shareholders of the hiring company.
