Enterprises and individuals who qualify for SSG’s enhanced subsidy schemes [SkillsFuture Mid-career Enhanced Subsidy and Enhanced Training Support for Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs)] will continue to receive an enhanced subsidy of up to 20% points above the baseline course fee subsidies, such that their total subsides will be up to 90% of course fees for courses offered by SSG-appointed CET Centres, and up to 70% of course fees for certifiable courses approved by SSG.
Enterprises can also offset the additional out-of-pocket expenses with the SkillsFuture Enterprise Credit (SFEC). Under the SFEC, eligible companies receive a one-off $10,000 credit to cover up to 90% of out-of-pocket expenses on qualifying costs for supportable initiatives for business and/or workforce transformation. In addition, enterprises can tap on the consultancy services provided by the National Centre of Excellence for Workplace Learning (NACE).
