Career switchers using SSG subsidy can enrol in software development courses
Professionals hoping to switch to software development careers can tap a training scheme that will have places for 100 mid-career workers over two years. The SkillsFuture career transition programme run by SMU Academy and Amazon Web Services (AWS) is scheduled to start in September and covers topics such as programming and cloud computing. The training content is curated by SMU Academy and SkillsFuture Singapore (SSG) based on the skills required by emerging technology job roles. Besides classroom learning, trainees will be able to visit AWS offices in Singapore, participate in networking sessions with cloud engineers and attend panel discussions. They can also receive career advice and job search help from SMU Academy. SMU Academy Executive Director Jack Lim said Singapore’s tech sector is experiencing unprecedented growth, creating a high demand for skilled professionals.
