Skillsfuture Mid-career enhanced subsidy (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.
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.
Table 1. Enhanced Course Fee Subsidies for SSG-supported Courses
|Type of Course||Non Professionals, Managers & Executives (PME) level courses||Professionals, Managers & Executives (PME) level courses|

|Certifiable-skills Training Courses||Up to 90% of course fees, capped at S$25/hour||Up to 90% of course fees, capped at S$50/hour|
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.
