Professional Conversion Programmes (PCPs) are career conversion programmes targeted at Professionals, Managers, Executives and Technicians (PMETs), including mid-career switchers, to undergo skills conversion and move into new occupations or sectors that have good prospects and opportunities for progression.

  • Place-and-Train: PMET is hired by a participating employer before undergoing training to take on new job role.
  • Attach-and-Train: PMET is provided with training and work attachments, in advance of job placement, through industry partners in growth sectors with good future job opportunities.

As announced by DPM Heng on 17 Aug 2020, the Jobs Growth Incentive (“JGI”) has been introduced to support companies to hire more Singaporeans and provide more good jobs amidst the current labour market.

a. Under the JGI, the Government will co-pay up to 25% of salaries of all new local hires between Sep 2020 (where the JGI will take effect) to Feb 2021 for one year, subject to a cap.

b. For those aged 40 and above, the co-payment to employers will be up to 50%.

More information on the JGI is available on IRAS’ website.

As the JGI will also apply to jobseekers undergoing reskilling through PCPs, WSG will be making temporary funding adjustments during the duration of the JGI to ensure our jobseekers continue to receive the necessary support they need to be placed into new opportunities in growth sectors. For more information, download the Factsheet and FAQs.

For individuals hired on Place-and-Train PCPs for the period between 1 Sep 2020 to 28 Feb 2021, the Salary Support disbursements will now be disbursed to participating employers over a longer period, comprising the PCP training duration and an additional period of retention equivalent to the training duration.
