Logistics: PCP for Supply Chain Professionals
Reskill your competencies to take on new jobs
What is it?

Under the Adapt and Grow initiative, Workforce Singapore (WSG), in collaboration with the Supply Chain and Logistics Academy (SCALA), worked together with the industry to co-develop the Professional Conversion Programme (PCP) for Supply Chain Professionals.

The PCP for Supply Chain Professionals aims to equip mid-career PMETs with the necessary competencies to take up roles in areas such as solutions designing, data analytics, planning and sourcing, supply chain planning, project management, and supply chain engineering in both logistics service providers and non-logistics companies. The PCP matches PMETs to participating employers, and facilitate the reskilling of these PMETs to take on new job roles as Supply Chain Professionals.

The 12-month PCP is administered by SCALA and will operate on a Place-and-Train mode. Participating companies will employ the participants who will then go on a rigourous training that comprises

  • 18 days of facilitated classroom sessions
  • 12 days of Coaching / Mentorship sessions, and
  • Customised, structured On-the-Job training (OJT).

Upon successful completion of programme, the participants will be awarded an Advanced Certificate in Supply Chain Management issued by SCALA as well as eight WSQ Statements of Attainment (SOAs).
