Q1: What is SkillsFuture Credit?
As part of the SkillsFuture movement by the Singapore government, SkillsFuture Credit is funding provided to eligible Singaporeans to encourage skills development and lifelong learning. These credits can be used to offset fees for approved reskilling and upskilling training courses and career transition programmes.
Starting from January 2016, all Singaporeans aged 25 and above would have received an opening credit of S$500 in their SkillsFuture Credit account, accessible here.
All Singaporeans aged 25 and above as of 31 December 2020 would have also received an additional one-off SkillsFuture Credit top-up of S$500. These top-up credits can be used starting from October 2020, and will expire on 31 December 2025.
Singaporeans aged 40 to 60 (inclusive) as of 31 December 2020 are eligible to receive an additional S$500 in credits on top of the aforementioned one-off top-up. This is to support mid-career individuals by improving access to career transition programmes.
Q2: How much remaining SkillsFuture credit do I have?
To check your remaining SkillsFuture balance, you can login to the SkillsFuture Portal using your SingPass account.
Q3: What are the course fees?
All our digital marketing courses, with the exception of the advanced SEO course, are priced at $500 each.
