In line with the objectives of SkillsFuture to support and encourage lifelong learning and help Singapore Citizens (SCs) stay responsive to a changing workplace, and in recognition that mid-career individuals may face greater challenges in undertaking training, SkillsFuture Singapore (SSG) has implemented enhanced course subsidies for mid-career individuals from 1 October 2015.
Under this scheme, Singapore Citizens aged 40 and above will enjoy enhanced subsidies of up to 90% of course fees for SSG-supported certifiable courses. Eligible individuals under the Workfare Training Support (WTS) Scheme will continue to receive 95% course fee funding support.
