Enhanced Training Support
The Enhanced Training Support for the Tourism Sector was introduced as part of the Stabilisation and Support Package announced by Deputy Prime Minister Heng Swee Keat on 18 Feb during the Budget 2020 statement to help mitigate the economic impact of the COVID-19 outbreak.
The time-limited Enhanced Training Support encourages employers in the tourism sector to leverage on downtime by sending workers for selected sector-specific training programmes in the next three months.
The Enhanced Training Support for the Food Services and Retail sector was unveiled by Mr Chee Hong Tat, Senior Minister of State, Ministry of Trade & Industry and Ministry of Education on 19 March 2020. The training support duration was further extended to cover eligible courses that start before 1 January 2021. This will provide sustained support for employers to upskill their workers as they prepare for recovery.
Eligible employers will receive:
Absentee Payroll (AP) support at 80% of hourly basic salary capped at $7.50 per hour, and
Enhanced course fee support at 90% of course fees
