Support Type: Salary Support, Talent/ Leadership Development Grants
The Capability Transfer Programme (CTP) aims to improve local-foreign workforce complementarity, by facilitating transfer of capabilities from foreign specialists to locals with the objectives of encouraging:
a) A culture of pervasive capabilities transfer across all sectors and entities; and b) Companies/associations/professional bodies to develop and acquire new capabilities in Singapore by ensuring that there is sufficient supply of Singaporeans with the requisite skillsets.
Funding support for the CTP can include components such as attachment-related costs and salary support for foreign and local specialists, as well as Singaporean trainees on overseas attachments to acquire new capabilities.
In the case of industry-wide projects, funding for equipment cost and venue cost may also be considered on a case-by-case basis.
Support levels will be determined by Workforce Singapore (WSG) in consultation with relevant sector agencies, on a co-funding basis where applicable, to ensure that companies, associations or professional bodies involved in the projects remain committed in their efforts to drive capability transfer at the company or industry level.
