The Enhanced Training Support Package (ETSP) is part of the Stabilisation and Support Package and supplementary Resilience Budget announced by Deputy Prime Minister Heng Swee Keat. It seeks to help companies in affected sectors tide over the economic impact of the pandemic and to help them position themselves for subsequent recovery. Companies in non-affected sectors are also eligible for 50% – 90% existing course fees subsidies.
Enhanced Absentee Payroll (EAP) at 90% of hourly basic salary, capped at $10 per hour now covers all sectors. All companies are now eligible to tap on the benefit.
