Funding for Employer-Based Training

What is funding for employers who sponsor employees for training?

Course Fee Subsidies and Absentee Payroll Funding are available for employers sponsoring employees who are either a Singapore Citizen or Permanent Resident.

If your employees earn not more than $1,900 per month and are 35 years old and above, you can benefit from the Workfare Training Support (WTS) scheme when you sponsor him/her for training.  WTS encourages you to sponsor your lower wage employees for training to upgrade their skills and improve your business performance.  Please click here to find out more about WTS.

For self-sponsored individuals, you also benefit from the new funding scheme as provided below.
