CCP for SME Executives


About Career Conversion Programme (CCP) for SME Executives

The CCP for SME Executives helps PMETs to reskill and take on new job roles in SMEs.

In addition, the CCP helps PMETs to acclimatize to an SME working environment and acquire necessary foundational skills in various business functional areas such as human resources, finance, admin and operations, sales and marketing. For PMETs joining from non-SMEs, the CCP will help them to adjust to the SOPs and processes in SMEs, which may differ considerably from a non-SME work environment, requiring multi-tasking and taking on enlarged job scopes.

The programme also benefits SMEs by providing salary support for SMEs to reskill jobseekers in new job roles. This enables SMEs to access a wider pool of jobseekers.

Programme Outline

Newly hired PMETs will undergo a 3-month programme, which includes a 3-day workshop and structured On-The-Job Training (OJT) at the hiring company.
