Rank-and-File Programmes Individuals

The Rank-and-File (RnF) Programmes provide training and salary support to help individuals in RnF jobs reskill to take on new or enhanced jobs roles.

There are 3 modes of RnF Programmes:

  1. Place-and-Train (PnT): Individuals are hired by a participating employer before undergoing training to take on new job roles
  2. Attach-and-Train (AnT): Individuals are 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: Individuals whose jobs are at risk of redundancy or in vulnerable jobs, are provided with training to take on new job roles or redesigned job roles within the same company.

As announced by DPM Heng on 17 Aug 2020, the Jobs Growth Incentive (“JGI”) has been introduced to support companies to hire more Singaporeans and provide more good jobs amidst the current labour market.

a. Under the JGI, the Government will co-pay up to 25% of salaries of all new local hires between Sep 2020 (where the JGI will take effect) to Feb 2021 for one year, subject to a cap.

b. For those aged 40 and above, the co-payment to employers will be up to 50%.

More information on the JGI is available on IRAS’ website.

As the JGI will also apply to jobseekers undergoing reskilling through RnF Programmes, WSG will be making temporary funding adjustments during the duration of the JGI to ensure our jobseekers continue to receive the necessary support they need to be placed into new opportunities in growth sectors.

Companies can tap on Government funding through course fee grants and salary support when training eligible individuals under the programme.
