Designers need to deepen both technical craft skills as well as broaden skillsets in adjacent domains such as business, innovation and technology to function effectively within design and/or non-design sectors. You can tap into the SkillsFuture Study Award for Design (SFSA) to support your professional development needs to deepen or broaden your design skillsets.
The SkillsFuture Study Awards will equip Singaporeans with the skills needed to benefit from quality jobs created by our economy. As Singapore continues our transition to an innovation-driven economy, new skills and competencies among Singaporeans will be in demand. Jobs are also evolving with new functions and existing ones requiring updated skillsets. The SkillsFuture Study Awards encourage Singaporeans to develop and deepen specialist skills needed by future economic growth sectors or in areas of demand. It also supports Singaporeans who already have deep specialist skills to develop other competencies. These skillsets are articulated in the Skills Framework for Design which can be found here.
Each successful award recipient will receive a monetary award of $5,000, on top of existing Government course fee subsidies, to support their skills acquisition journey. No bond is required.
