The initiative hopes to reskill up to 1000 job seekers over a two-year period and match them with meaningful employment opportunities in technology.
1) SG United Mid-Career Pathways Program - Company Training
SG United Mid-Career Pathways Program – Company Training (SGUP-CT) is a SkillsFuture program targeted at young professionals and mid-career job seekers impacted by the economic consequences of COVID-19, looking to gain in-demand digital skills and chart their careers in technology.
The 9-month program consists of a 3-month job-role specific bootcamp which is designed in consultation with employer partners. The bootcamp is delivered in partnership with Temasek Polytechnic and is followed by a 6-month paid apprenticeship with an employer partner. This program also provides you with learning pathways that can lead to industry certification by Microsoft. Prior education or work experience in technology is not a requirement to apply for this program. At the end of the program, Microsoft and Generation will assist eligible candidates to facilitate job placement opportunities with Microsoft’s partner companies.
