Funding Support for Non-SMEs

If your Company’s annual sales turnover of more than S$100 million OR employment size is more than 200 workers you are qualified under this category. If you wish to send your employees (Singapore citizen or permanent resident) for WSQ training, you can enjoy the 70-90% course fee subsidies, you can enroll directly with TaF.tc. You will only need to pay the net fee (course fee after SSG’s grant). We will apply the WSQ funding on your behalf
