What Is it?

The SkillsFuture Mid-Career Enhanced Subsidy supports and encourages lifelong learning and helps Singaporeans stay responsive to a changing workplace. Recognising that mid-career individuals may face greater challenges in undertaking training, the Government has implemented this programme to encourage mid-career Singaporeans to upskill and reskill.

Who is it for?

The SkillsFuture Mid-Career Enhanced Subsidy is for Singaporeans aged 40 years old and above.
