The Government has introduced SkillsFuture to empower Singaporeans to learn, pick up new skills and discover their potential and strengths as part of their lifelong learning journey. From January 2016, every Singaporean aged 25 years and above will be given a SkillsFuture Credit account with an initial $500 to pay towards their personal skills development and training.

On top of the SkillsFuture Credit, Singaporeans who are NTUC members can also use the Union Training Assistance Programme (UTAP) to defray their costs of training and skills upgrading.

SkillsFuture is a national movement to enable Singaporeans to make their own choices in picking up new skills sets and growing their potential, regardless of their starting points.
