SGUnited Skills Programme

PaCE@NTU offers NTU SGUnited Skills Programme to jobseekers impacted by the economic consequences of COVID-19. It is a full-time, 6-month training programme developed to help trainees in acquiring industry-relevant skills to enhance their employability and access job opportunities in this current economic climate. 

Course fee for this programme is highly subsidised to a nett fee of S$500, and trainees may utilise their SkillsFuture Credit to offset the course fee. In view of the full-time training commitment, trainees will also receive a training allowance of S$1,200 per month from SkillsFuture Singapore (SSG) for the duration of the programme to cover their basic subsistence expenses. To receive the training allowance, trainees are required to attend courses for minimum 60 hours per month.

To assist trainees to pivot to new growth roles after training, PaCE@NTU provide placement facilitation support including job referrals & virtual live speed interviews with prospective employers. Through individual and group career coaching sessions, the centre also equipped our trainees with proven job search skills to increase their chances of securing employment. However, PaCE@NTU does not guarantee job placement. The 6-month training programme is also conducted in a modular format which allows trainees the flexibility to leave the programme should they gain employment before the end of the full programme.

Registration is open to all Singapore Citizen and Permanent Resident subject to individuals meeting SSG's funding criteria.
