Traineeship programme for early childhood sector to be launched
The Singapore Workforce Development Agency (WDA) with the support of the Early Childhood Development Agency (ECDA) will be launching a Traineeship Programme for the Early Childhood sector this Saturday.
It'll allow jobseekers who are interested in the Early Childhood sector to have first-hand experience of jobs offered in the sector.
Trainees will undergo a short-term traineeship programme with pre-school operators for up to two weeks (80 hours) of on-the-job training in early childhood skills.
They will receive training allowance for the period of traineeship.
In addition, they will receive incentives of up to $500 if they complete the traineeship programme and continue to remain in the sector.
The Traineeship Programme for the Early Childhood sector enables pre-school employers to "open their doors" to jobseekers who are interested to find out more about the Early Childhood sector.
Through the programme, both pre-school operators and trainees will have the opportunity to assess suitability for positions such as pre-school teachers, infant educarers and para-personnel.
WDA and ECDA will facilitate placement of candidates under the Traineeship Programme.
