Both schemes of training lead to relevant ITE certification.Traineeship training comprises 2 components, namely, on-the-job training (OJT) and off-the-job training. OJT is provided in-house by the employer at the work place. For off-the-job training, the trainee attends classes at an ITE College once or twice a week. The employer pays the trainee a monthly salary for the full duration of traineeship.For full-time institutional training, the student will attend full-time training conducted at an ITE College from Mondays to Fridays and participates in extra-curricular activities. Also, the student will have to pay his/her own course and other related fees.
A trainee who successfully completes his/her Traineeship will receive the relevant National ITE Certificate (or Nitec), and a letter to recognise that the trainee has had relevant work experience in the company. For full-time institutional training, the student who successfully completes the course will receive just the relevant Nitec certificate.
If your employee meets the entry requirement for the course applied for, your company may apply to ITE to sponsor your employee to attend a Traineeship course. This may be subjected to Ministry of Education's approval. Do note that employers will not be eligible for training funding from SSG and ITE will also not be liable should the work permits not be renewed during the period of the training. As announced by the Ministry of Education, course fees for non-citizens are differentiated and shall apply to trainees who are not Singapore Citizens.
