SGUnited Traineeships and Mid-Career Pathways Programmes

Important Notes

1. No application fees are required for participation in the Programmes. 

2. Development Plan - Host companies are required to declare all cost-cutting and retrenchment measures taken over the last six months, and to submit a development plan for every traineeship and mid-career position to SBF for assessment. SBF will then review and approve the application based on criteria set forth by Workforce Singapore (WSG). As these are traineeship programmes, host companies are required to follow strictly the development plan that has been developed for each trainee. 

3. Agreement between host organisation and trainee – Upon SBF’s approval of the application, host companies may source for and offer the approved traineeship/ attachment to their selected candidates. To formalise the traineeship/attachment, an agreement will be signed between the host company and the trainee. SBF is not a party to the signed agreement. Trainees should carefully evaluate the terms and conditions of the agreement before signing them.
