SkillsFuture Singapore (SSG) is piloting a new work-learn programme called the SkillsFuture Work-Learn Bootcamp, which aims to enhance work-learn opportunities for young Singaporeans.
The bootcamp, which consists of eight to 12 weeks of intensive training, matches recent graduates or people in the middle of their careers with companies seeking fresh talent.
The instruction is conducted by participating polytechnics and the Institute of Technical Education.
Employers will receive a $5,000 mentorship grant for each bootcamp participant joining their company.
SSG will also introduce six new programmes under its Earn and Learn Programme (ELP). These include specialist diplomas in applied artificial intelligence, and healthy ageing and community care for seniors.
