Holistic professional and personal well-being support


The #GetReadySG Train-and-Place Programme supports mid-career individuals motivated to make a career change into the technology sector. Our train-and-place programmes are designed for individuals without an educational background or prior work experience in the technology industry.

The programme covers a comprehensive curriculum of technical and non-technical skills designed in consultation with employer partners in the local technology sector. Individuals will undergo a virtual 12-week instructor-facilitated training bootcamp with hands-on projects and assignments in learning pathways that lead to industry-recognised certification from Microsoft. 

Upon completion of the bootcamp, individuals will receive placement assistance from Generation Singapore into a full-time role or a paid apprenticeship in areas such as Full Stack Development, Data Engineering, and Cloud Support and DevOps.
