Google launches Skills Ignition SG: a Grow with Google program to help 3,000 Singaporeans
Singaporeans have built one of the most competitive economies in the world. But right now, the country’s workers are facing a challenging outlook. There are fewer jobs available, while the jobs that are available require different skills. COVID-19 means more people are working from home, more roles are reliant on technology, and more small businesses are adopting digital tools—trends that we know will continue beyond the pandemic.
Today, in partnership with several government agencies, Google is launching Skills Ignition SG: a Grow with Google program that will help 3,000 Singaporeans and permanent residents get the skills they need for changing technology and a shifting job market.
Learning skills, building experience
Skills Ignition SG has two elements. One is a six-month vocational course for mid-career job seekers, designed to teach them skills in digital marketing and cloud technology and give them the chance to earn professional certificates recognised around the world. The second element is a ‘place and train’ program, where participants will do three months of online training before moving on to six months of work experience with employers. learn more
