Reskill your competencies to take on new jobs
Accurate as of 30 Mar 2024
What is it?

The consultancy sector in Singapore is a key growth sector which supports business needs for advisory services in the Asian and Southeast Asian region. With an increase in client demand for advisory projects in areas such as technology and transformation, the demand for consulting roles will continue to grow.

The Career Conversion Programme (CCP) for Consultants is aimed at facilitating mid-career individuals with industry experience but with no consulting experience to take on consultant roles in the consulting sector.

This CCP is managed by NTUC LearningHub with the support of Workforce Singapore (WSG) and the Singapore Economic Development Board (EDB). Mid-career individuals hired and placed under the CCP will undergo a 6-month training programme by the hiring employers. The training will be On-the-Job Training-centric, covering Technical Skills and Competencies, and Critical Core Skills required for consulting job roles. 

Who can apply?


The programme is open to all company-sponsored applicants who meet the following general eligibility criteria:

  • Be a Singapore Citizen (SC) or Permanent Resident (PR) aged 21 years and above;
  • New hires must have graduated or completed NS, whichever is later, at least two years at the point of application;
  • Must be a newly hired PMET (i.e. not more than three (3) months from date of employment), and nominated by an eligible company for the CCP;
  • Must not be in a similar job role prior to joining the CCP;
  • Must not be a shareholder of the participating company, or its related companies;
  • Must not be related to the owner(s) of the participating company; and
