What Is it?

The SkillsFuture Leadership Development Initiative (LDI) aims to develop the next generation of Singaporean business leaders by supporting aspiring Singaporeans in acquiring critical leadership competencies and experiences through company in-house programmes or sectoral corporate leadership programmes.

Who Is It For?

The SkillsFuture LDI support is available for eligible Singaporeans who are keen to enhance their corporate leadership competencies and experiences in key sectors. 

The SkillsFuture LDI is also for companies that are registered or incorporated in Singapore. Employers who are dedicated to developing the leadership potential of their Singaporean employees may contact their respective government agency account managers for more information.


How Will I Benefit?

Through the sectoral leadership programmes, you may gain leadership competencies and experiences that will help you in your development as a corporate leader.

You may leverage SkillsFuture LDI to develop and/or enhance in-house leadership development programmes, for example, overseas assignments and cross-functional rotations, to expand the pipeline of Singaporean talent that are ready for corporate leadership roles.


How does it work?

Aspiring Singaporeans will need to seek endorsement from your employer to attend the selected sectoral leadership programmes. Individuals may be eligible for course fee subsidies and in some cases, be able to apply for the SkillsFuture Study Awards.

The respective government agencies will work closely with you to develop and/or enhance your in-house leadership development programmes.
