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.
