ENHANCE TRAINING SUPPORT PACKAGE (ETSP)

The Enhanced Training Support Package (ETSP) is part of the Stabilisation and Support Package and Supplementary Resilience Budget. The ETSP will be time-limited to cover eligible courses in selected sectors starting before 1 Jan 2021. This is to help selected sectors tide over the economic impact of COVID-19, and to help them position themselves for subsequent recovery.

Asian Culinary Institute (ACI), a CET institute of Nanyang Polytechnic, has been appointed as an approved training partner to provide training for Food Services, Retail and Tourism sectors during this challenging period, to equip them with skills to help them raise their capabilities. This will be a good opportunity to train and upskill.
