03 Mar 2021 05:25pm
Singapore will continue to invest in SkillsFuture, with one key thrust being to strengthen the role of employers in developing their workforces, said Minister of State for Education Gan Siow Huang in Parliament on Wednesday (Mar 3). However, given the tight fiscal situation, schemes will be continually reviewed with a focus on strong employment outcomes. In addition, when the Enhanced Training Support Package for COVID-hit sectors ends this year, absentee payroll funding will be revised to a more sustainable rate.
