SkillsFuture Work-Study Programme Expands its Reach with New Offerings

The Institutes of Higher Learning (IHLs), supported by SkillsFuture Singapore (SSG), will introduce nine new SkillsFuture Work-Study Programmes from October 2023. This was announced by Ms Gan Siow Huang, Minister of State for Education and Manpower at the SkillsFuture Work-Study Fair today, which is part of the ongoing SkillsFuture Festival.

Themed “Step into your LIT Future”, this year’s SkillsFuture Work-Study Fair was organised by Ngee Ann Polytechnic, in collaboration with other polytechnics and the Institute of Technical Education. The Fair showcased work-study opportunities for fresh graduates and the industry partnerships that underpin the work-study ecosystem.

Expansion of SkillsFuture Work-Study Programmes

Since its commencement in 2015, more than 10,000 participants and more than 2,400 companies have benefitted from SkillsFuture Work-Study Programmes. To expand work-study opportunities for Singaporeans, SSG is working with the IHLs and industry partners to roll out new SkillsFuture Work-Study Programmes across emerging and growth sectors, which are enabled by the active support of companies.
