What is MCES?
The SkillsFuture Mid-Career Enhanced Subsidy supports and encourages lifelong learning and helps Singaporeans stay responsive to a changing workplace. Recognising that mid-career individuals may face greater challenges in undertaking training, the Government has implemented this programme to encourage mid-career Singaporeans to upskill and reskill.
Who is it for?The SkillsFuture Mid-Career Enhanced Subsidy is for Singaporeans aged 40 years old and above.
Eligible individuals will receive higher subsidies of up to 90% of course fees (See Table 1.) for over 8,000 SSG-supported courses with effect from 1 October 2015.
Existing SSG-courses that are already subsidised at 90% or higher will continue to be subsidised at the current levels. These include SSG-supported courses for non-PME level courses conducted at SSG CET Centres, as well as SSG-supported courses for eligible individuals under the Workfare Training Support Scheme.
