Workfare Training Support (WTS) Scheme was introduced in 2010 to help older (35 years old and above), lower wage Singaporeans (earning not more than $1,700 per month) upgrade their skills through training, thereby improving their employability, upgrade to better jobs and earn more. As announced during COS 2013, WTS will be enhanced to cover a wider pool of workers (those earning not more than $1,900 per month), and to provide support to employed Singaporeans who sign up for training on their own. The range of courses covered under WTS will also be increased to include over 2,000 additional good courses outside the WSQ system.
If you are 35 years old and above, and earning not more than $1,900 per month, you can benefit from these enhancements.
The enhancements to WTS will take effect from 1 July 2013.
