What is the #GetReadySG Train-and-Place Programme?

12-week bootcamp curriculum validated by tech sector employer partners

Holistic professional and personal well-being support

Learning pathways to attain Microsoft Learn certification in Microsoft Azure

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, Generation Singapore will provide employability skills support for individuals as they embark on their job search journey into areas such as Full Stack Development, Data Engineering, and Cloud Support and DevOps.
