Professional Conversion Programmes (PCPs) are career conversion programmes for mid-career PMETs (Professionals, Managers, Executives and Technicians), to undergo skills conversion and move into new occupations or sectors that have good prospects and opportunities for progression. WSG offers about 100 PCPs to support PMETs in career conversion. Through PCPs' industry-recognised training, companies will gain a wider pool of candidates to consider when hiring.
Interested PMETs will need to meet the following criteria:
- Singapore Citizen or Permanent Resident
- Minimum 21 years old
- Graduated or completed National Service for at least 2 years prior at the point of application
- New job role trained under the PCP should be substantially different from previous job role(s), hence requiring reskilling for career conversion
Beyond the general eligibility criteria for PMETs, there may be other course-specific entry criteria and employer-specific shortlisting process may apply for different PCPs. In general, individuals applying for PCPs should also not be shareholders, immediate ex-employees of company or related entities, or be related to shareholders of the hiring company. Please refer to the FAQs for more details on these exclusions.
