Career Conversion Programmes (CCPs) are for mid-career individuals to undergo skills conversion and move into new occupations or sectors that have good prospects and opportunities for progression. WSG offers about 100 CCPs to support mid-career individuals in career conversion. Through CCPs’ industry-recognised training, companies will gain a wider pool of candidates to consider when hiring.
There are 3 modes of CCPs: 1. Place-and-Train: Mid-career individual is hired by a participating employer before undergoing training to take on a new job role. 2. Attach-and-Train: Mid-career individual is provided with training and work attachments, prior to job placement, through industry partners in growth sectors with good future job opportunities 3. Redeployment / Job Redesign (JR) Reskilling: Targeted at companies that are undergoing business transformation, and where their existing workers are at risk of redundancy or in vulnerable jobs due to the transformation. These workers will be provided with training to take on new job roles or redesigned job roles within the same company.
Companies can tap on Government funding through course fee grants and salary support when training eligible mid-career individuals under CCPs.
