Under the Adapt and Grow Initiative, Professional Conversion Programmes (PCPs) are career conversion programmes for mid-career PMETs (Professionals, Managers, Executives and Technicians), to undergo skills conversion and move into new occupations or sectors that have good prospects and opportunities for progression. WSG offers about 100 PCPs to support PMETs in career conversion. Through PCPs’ industry-recognised training, companies will gain a wider pool of candidates to consider when hiring.
There are 3 modes of PCPs:
1. Place-and-Train: PMET is hired by a participating employer before undergoing training to take on a new job role.
2. Attach-and -Train: PMET is provided with training and work attachments, prior to job placement, through industry partners in growth sectors with good future job opportunities
3. Redeployment / Job Redesign (JR) Reskilling: PMET at risk of redundancy in vulnerable job roles is retained by existing employers and reskilled training to take on new job roles within the same company.
Companies can tap on Government funding through course fee grants and salary support when training eligible PMETs under PCPs.
