Career Conversion Programmes (CCP) for Individuals
Career Conversion Programmes (CCPs) for Individuals
Career Conversion Programmes (CCPs) are conversion programmes targeted at mid-career individuals here in Singapore, to undergo skills conversion and switch to new jobs or sectors that have good prospects and opportunities for progression.
Career Conversion Programmes (CCPs) for Individuals
  • Industry-recognised training to move into new occupations or sectors with good prospects
  • Salary support of up to 90% for mid-career workers
  • Embark on a new career with close to 100 CCPs across around 30 sectors

Benefits of CCPs

Mid-Career Individuals in Singapore can undergo industry-recognised training with up to 90% salary and course fee support. WSG offers close to 100 CCPs across around 30 sectors to help mid-career individuals reskill and make a successful career switch.

There are 3 modes of CCPs:

1. Place-and-Train: The mid-career individual is hired by a participating employer before undergoing training to take on a new job role.

2. Attach-and-Train:  The mid-career individual is provided with training and work attachments, prior to job placement. This is done in partnership with industry partners in growth sectors with good future career opportunities

3. Redeployment / Job Redesign (JR) Reskilling: This is targeted at companies that are undergoing business transformation, and where their existing workers are at risk of redundancy or are in vulnerable jobs due to the transformation. These workers will be provided with training to prepare them for new job roles or redesigned job roles within the same company.

Eligibility Criteria

Eligible Mid-career Individuals:


  • Singapore Citizen or Permanent Resident

  • Minimum 21 years old

  • Graduated or completed National Service, for at least two (2) years

  • New job role trained for under the CCP should be substantially different from previous job role(s)*, hence requiring reskilling for career conversion

  • Able to commit to full-time employment or attachment in a participating company


* 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. Please refer to the FAQs for more details on these exclusions.

Job Growth Incentive and CCPs

The Jobs Growth Incentive (“JGI”) was introduced in Aug 2020 to support companies to hire more Singaporeans.

More information on the JGI can be found at

As the JGI also applied to newly hired CCP trainees undergoing reskilling, WSG applied funding adjustments for all new CCP trainees hired from 1 Sep 2020 to 31 Mar 2023 to encourage employers that are participating in CCPs to retain their new local hires as far as possible.

CCP salary support was disbursed to participating employers over a longer period, comprising the CCP training duration and an additional period of retention equivalent to the training duration.

The adjustments to CCP salary support disbursements do not affect the following groups of CCP participants.

a. Local workers who were hired on Place-and-Train CCPs before Sep 2020 or after Mar 2023, which is outside of the qualifying period for JGI.

b. Participants under Redeployment and JR Reskilling CCPs who are existing employees.

c. Attach-and-Train (“AnT”) CCP participants who do not have an employer-employee relationship with the host organisations.

As JGI has ended on 31 March 2023, the funding adjustments will no longer apply to new CCP trainees hired from 1 April 2023 onwards.
