Programme

CCP-S Programme Structure

Mandatory Component 

Trainees will need to undergo a sustainability training programme to be selected from WSG pre-approved list. On top of the training programme, The Company are required to conduct On-the-Job Training to ensure the trainee applies the sustainability knowledge in their role. A half-day networking session will be conducted by SBF to allow the trainees to gain a better perspective of sustainability from their peers and encourage the sharing of sustainability practices. 

The optional mentorship (separate fee applicable) will be available to the company that requires an industry expert to guide trainees on their sustainability plan. 

 
Optional CCP-S Mentorship (Separate Fee Applicable) 

The optional 3 half-day CCP-S mentorship chargeable at S$800 (before GST) aims to provide advice to trainees on the fundamental information, knowledge, and skills on sustainability (e.g. Carbon management, Compliance requirements, etc). 
This advisory will help trainees to kickstart their company’s sustainability journey through guidance and discussion on their action plans for their sustainability projects. 

The CCP-S’s Mentorship Council was formed in July 2022. The primary roles of the Mentorship Council are to establish mentors’ selection guidelines, guidelines for mentors to provide mentoring sessions, assessment or performance guidelines for mentors, provide technical advisory where applicable and review the list of mentors and the effectiveness of the mentorship programme.
