More Mid-Careerists Gain from Professional Conversion Programmes amid COVID-19

by Pace Staff Singapore Pace Academy

Despite the economic turmoil this year due to the sudden outbreak of the COVID-19, more employers are onboarding new people who have completed Professional Conversion Programmes (PCPs). Employers are also preparing current employees for new roles and challenges.

More companies are participating in the PCPs by joining hands with the Continuing Education and Training (CET) providers in Singapore. Many professionals are benefitting from this. They are getting to interact with industry experts and gain domain knowledge from them.


Reskilling is happening because most professionals want to take up new roles which they have been longing for. Some of them also want to serve their present organisation but in a better way to grab employers’ attention.


PCPs are much needed during this critical time as businesses are trying to regain their form. Professionals are also trying to acquire new skills to land new jobs that are rewarding for their career.


During the pandemic, along with the existing professional training programmes, the Singapore government has launched SGUnited Jobs and Skills Package. The whole purpose of the package is to train people in industry-relevant skills and make them job-ready. During learning, there is an additional benefit of $1,200 monthly as allowance.


Results have shown that if you have the right mindset and expectations, nothing can stop the transition with these programmes. 


If we are talking about professionals, then we must also consider the fresh minds who are graduating this year. Before you become a part of the corporate world, try training with the SkillsFuture Work-Study Programmes.


Starting from the fundamentals to the industry insights, you get it all from the industry-centric training. Students during their college degrees do not have the opportunity to dive deep into a particular subject. A computer engineering student might be interested in learning cybersecurity seeing the scope of growth with it. It is not possible for him to focus on the subject solely during his tertiary education. When he enrols for a certification programme, he gets trained by mentors and industry experts.


Learning to use new technologies will help you apply for bigger companies. Employers look for a positive approach with versatile skills.


There are some common benefits both professionals, and fresh graduates enjoy when they apply for certification.


Common Benefits


  • Flexible timing without disturbing your daily schedule
  • Use of interactive ways like presentations, webinars and group discussions during the training
  • Courses are shorter in length, unlike regular degree programmes
  • Topics relevant to the industry
  • Industry immersion programmes to understand the domain in a better way
  • Affordable course fees


Learning with multiple benefits must be considered by all. Professional Conversion Programmes and other adult education courses are now also online. You don’t need to worry about your health and safety during this pandemic. Get in touch with a CET provider in Singapore, and get the best learning experience.
