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.
How will I Benefit?
Eligible individuals will receive higher subsidies of up to 90% of course fees (See Table 1.) for over 8,000 SSG-supported courses, and at least 90% of programme cost for MOE-subsidised full-time and part-time courses ranging from Nitec to postgraduate1 level in the following institutions.
