The SkillsFuture national movement – which aims to build a culture of skills development and lifelong learning – has offered Singaporeans aged 25 and above an opening credit of $500 that they can use to sign up for courses and programmes in Singapore.
What’s more, Singaporeans will also receive an additional one-off SkillsFuture Credit top-up of $500 as of Dec this year. This extra credit, if unused, will expire on Dec 31, 2025. On top of this, those aged 40 to 60 will get another $500 in credits to improve their access to career transition programmes. This credit will also expire in five years’ time.
