The world of work is changing. Employment is now more about skills, not jobs. The more skills you have, the more opportunities open up for you. Employers want people with diverse skill sets who can work in teams and solve problems.

You don’t have to know-it-all to keep up with the latest trends in your industry. You just need to identify your strengths and interests to match them with training opportunities that are SkillsFuture eligible.

What is SkillsFuture?

SkillsFuture is a national movement in Singapore to help people upgrade their skills to meet the challenges of an ever-changing economy. Its programmes are designed to help people at different stages of their careers or life-cycles to stay competitive.

To take advantage of SkillsFuture, all Singaporeans can enjoy course fee subsidies and are given SkillsFuture credit to offset the cost of their learning in approved courses at selected education institutions. They get $500 of SkillsFuture opening credit which will not expire, and an additional top-up of $500 which is set to expire on 31 December 2025. 

Although they do not receive the SkillsFuture credit, Permanent Residents of Singapore (PR) will still get to enjoy the course fee subsidy at all SkillsFuture-approved institutions.

With SkillsFuture, individuals are empowered to develop their skills and take charge of their learning journey for a more fulfilling career.

How Will SkillsFuture Benefit You?

The SkillsFuture programmes will benefit students, young working adults and mid-career individuals. 

As a student, you can use SkillsFuture to pursue your passions and interests and decide on what you wish to specialise in. You have an opportunity to explore the possibilities while you learn and discover a career path which suits you best. 

Young working adults can take advantage of SkillsFuture to deepen their knowledge and develop the right skills. With the constant advancement of technology and globalisation, it is important to realise that your continuous learning is critical to career progression.

Mid-career individuals seeking to upgrade their skills to complement their experience-rich career, will find SkillsFuture useful and beneficial. There are plenty of opportunities for re-training to stay up-to-date with your current skills while also dabbling in other areas of interest. You may also take advantage of SkillsFuture and enroll in a course if you are preparing for a mid-career switch.
