PREREQUISITES FOR ADMISSION
WHAT WILL YOU GET UPON COMPLETION?
Will the SGUnited Skills Programme/ SGUnited Mid-Career Pathways Programme - Company Training come with job placements?
As the SGUnited Skills Programme/ SGUnited Mid-Career Pathways Programme - Company Training operates on a Train-and-Place model, training providers will provide career advisory and employment assistance to help trainees in their job search in relevant sectors. However, there is no guarantee of a job placement and trainees would need to be open to the job opportunities available. The programme is also conducted in a modular format which allows trainees the flexibility to leave the programme should they gain employment before the end of the full programme.
Do trainees have to pay for the programmes? If yes, how much?
The nett fee after Government subsidy ranges from $500 for a 6-month course to $1,000 for a 12-month course, with fees pro-rated accordingly for durations in between. Course fees have been kept affordable as the programme is targeted at mid-career jobseekers impacted by the economic consequences of COVID-19. In most cases, Government subsidies for such courses will cover more than 95% of the course fees. Trainees can offset the nett course fees using their SkillsFuture Credit, including the top-ups announced in the 2020 Unity Budget.
Do trainees pay the full amount of nett fees upfront or at the end of the programme?
The nett fees are to be paid upfront.
Do trainees get a refund on nett fees due to dropping out of the course half-way?
Trainees will be refunded the nett fees paid for the unconsumed modules if they drop out of the course half-way. A module that is partially completed is considered consumed.
Is the nett course fee for the courses inclusive of GST?
Will trainees, who drop out of the programme midway, be penalised or required to refund the course fee subsidy?
The programmes allow trainees to exit without penalty if they are successfully placed into a job or have secured a job on their own accord while undergoing training. However, trainees who exit the programme without a valid reason may be asked to return the course fee subsidy that they have received.
Will trainees who have found employment midway through the course be able to continue with the course?
Trainees should inform the training provider on any changes in employment status while undergoing training. Their training providers will assess and advise them on their suitability to continue with the course.
Will trainees be allowed to switch SGUnited Skills Programme/SGUnited Mid-CareerPathways Programme – Company Training courses within the same training provider or across programmes with different training providers midway through the course? (Programmes refer to SGUnited Mid-Career Pathways Programme – Company Attachment, SGUnited Mid-Career Pathways Programme – Company Training or SGUnited Skills Programme)?
Trainees are encouraged to continue with their current programmes. The programmes allow early exit without penalty only if trainees are successfully placed into a job or have secured a job on their own accord while undergoing training. Switching to other programmes does not constitute as job placement, and trainees may be asked to return the course fee subsidy that they had received.
In addition, in order to provide opportunities for as many Singaporeans and Permanent Residents as possible, individuals can only enrol in the SGUnited Skills Programme or SGUnited Mid-Career Pathways Programme – Company Training once. This includes individuals who had previously attended but did not complete a SGUnited Skills Programme or SGUnited Mid-Career Pathways Programme – Company Training.
Will SSG allow trainees, who did not manage to find a job after completing a course, take up another course under the SGUnited Skills Programme or SGUnited Mid-Career Pathways Programme - Company Training?
In order to provide opportunities for as many Singaporeans and Permanent Residents as possible, individuals can only enrol in the SGUnited Skills Programme or SGUnited Mid-Career Pathways Programme - Company Training once. This includes individuals who had previously attended but did not complete a SGUnited Skills Programme or SGUnited Mid-Career Pathways Programme - Company Training.
Therefore, individuals are strongly encouraged to select the courses based on career development needs with the aim of securing gainful employment.
