SkillsFuture Credit for Singaporeans from 1 Jan

All Singaporeans aged 25 and above will receive $500 worth of SkillsFuture Credit from 1 Jan next year, and can use it for a range of about 10,000 courses.
 
This was announced by Acting Minister for Education Ong Ye Kung at the Lifelong Learning Festival yesterday.
 
The credit, which does not expire, will be periodically topped up and can be used on top of other government subsidies.
 
More than two million Singaporeans will qualify for SkillsFuture Credit, which is meant to support Singaporeans in their pursuit of lifelong learning. Administered by the Singapore Workforce Development Agency (WDA), the Government has set aside more than $1 billion so far to fund the scheme.
 
More details on the 10,000 courses will be available through an online course directory, which will be launched on 20 Nov. Singaporeans need not choose only courses relevant to their current job or industry, in case they should want to explore a career switch.
 
Those who qualify will receive a letter in January about their SkillsFuture Credit account activation.
