Aerospace: CCP for Aerospace Officer and Aerospace Executive
Reskill your competencies to take on new jobs
Accurate as of 31 Mar 2024
What is it?

Companies in the Aerospace sphere have displayed much resilience in overcoming the challenges brought by the recent pandemic and are on track towards full recovery. Growth and development in areas such as new, advanced, and sustainable aircrafts as well as the use of Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) will inevitably incorporate both green and digital elements to existing job scopes. Join the sector and play a key role in the global transition towards new and advanced aircrafts and reduce the world’s carbon emissions.

The Career Conversion Programme (CCP) for Aerospace Officer and Executive aims to lower the barrier to entry for mid-career individuals as well as existing employees to move into new or enhanced roles in the Aerospace sector. The programme provides employers with salary support to reskill these individuals, equipping them with skills, knowledge and competencies required for their new or expanded roles.

Managed by the Association of Aerospace Industries (Singapore) (AAIS), the programme seeks to encourage and enable employers to optimise existing jobs and create higher value roles to attract and retain local talent in the sector.

Who can apply?
  1. Individuals who are from a non-Aerospace sector and switching into the Aerospace sector.
  2. Individuals who are switching to a different role within the Aerospace sector.
  3. Individuals who are currently employed in the Aerospace sector and will be embarking on a new or expanded or redesigned role within the same company.



  • Singapore Citizen or Permanent Resident aged 21 and above.
  • Must not have prior working experience or be in similar job role in previous employment.
  • Cannot be shareholders of the participating company or its related entities, and/or related to the owners/shareholders of the participating company.
  • New hires must have graduated or completed NS, whichever is later, for at least two years at the point of application.
  • New hires must apply and kickstart their CCP within first 3 months from their start date (nomination by company).
  • Existing employees to be onboard Job Redesign Reskilling (JRR) or Redeployment CCP must be in service for at least a year from date of application.



  • Registered or incorporated in Singapore.
  • Must be able to offer employment directly related to the job which the CCP is for, with remuneration that is commensurate with the market rate.
  • Commit to the CCP training arrangements for the employees or mid-career new hires whom they have selected to enrol in the programme.

  • For applications for redeployment/JRR CCPs, companies are required to submit details of their business transformation plan for evaluation by WSG.

How does it work?

The CCP comprises three modalities, namely:



New Hire

Intra-sectoral/Intersectoral new hires who joined the company for less than 3 months

9 months


Existing Employee’s job at immediate / near-term risk of being made redundant

6 months

During the programme, individuals will undergo a structured CCP training programme, based on 100% structured on-the-job training (OJT).


Applications received would be forwarded to AAIS for processing and shared with employers with available vacancies for shortlisting.

The candidate has to be offered employment by a participating company before embarking on the programme.
