What is it?

The new SkillsFuture Level-Up Programme will provide greater structural support for mid-career Singaporeans aged 40 years and above to pursue a substantive skills reboot and stay relevant in a changing economy.

Support for Course Fees

  • NEW From 1 May 2024, a SkillsFuture Credit (Mid-Career) top-up of $4,000, to further offset out-of-pocket course fees for selected courses that have better employability outcomes.
  • Can be used for about 7,000 selected courses that support substantive upskilling and reskilling. 
    • Institutions of Higher Learning full qualifications and shorter modules that stack to a full qualification
    • MOE-subsidised full qualifications from the University of the Arts Singapore and Arts Institutions
    • SkillsFuture Career Transition Programme (SCTP), which are SSG’s train-and-place programmes in sectors with good hiring opportunities
    • Courses aligned to training requirements in Progressive Wage Model (PWM) sectors
    • Workplace Literacy and Numeracy courses.
  • The course list will be available on MySkillsFuture from 22 April 2024.

  • Currently, Singaporeans qualify for the Mid-Career Enhanced Subsidy (MCES) which covers up to 90% of the fees for courses funded by SkillsFuture Singapore and at least 90% of the programme cost for Ministry of Education-funded courses.
  • ENHANCED From Academic Year 2025, Singaporeans can receive subsidies for another publicly-funded full-time diploma, and qualify for the MCES.

  • Financial Support for Full-Time, Long-Form Training

    NEW From early 2025, Singaporeans can apply for a new SkillsFuture Mid-Career Training Allowance when they take up selected full-time, long-form programmes. The allowance will be based on 50% of one’s average income over the latest available 12-month period, capped at $3,000 a month, for up to 24 months over an individual’s lifetime. 

    More details will be released at a later date.
