Great news for all Singaporeans aged 25 and above! The SkillsFuture Credit, a $500 credit given to individuals to support them in taking control of their lifelong learning journey, will start in January 2016.
You will receive a letter soon informing you how to activate your account. Do be patient as there are 2.5 million Singaporeans but only one Singpost.
A few key points that you need to know about this SkillsFuture Credit:
- Elementary 1
- Elementary 2
- Elementary 3
- Business Japanese
- Basic Business Japanese
If you are an Intermediate level or Pre-advanced student, we are trying to get the courses approved, but this is subjected to WDA / SkillsFuture’s approval. I will update again on this blog.
Three simple steps to follow if you want to utilise your credit:
There are two options in submitting your claim:
a. 30 days before the course start date if you want to credit to Bunka OR
b. 90 days after the course start date if you want to credit to your bank account.
If you are thinking of learning the Japanese language, do consider using the SkillsFuture Credit as a stepping stone. Mastering a language, like all other skills, takes time, discipline and hard work.
Bunka will provide you with a system to shorten your learning curve, a conducive environment to practise the language and most importantly, connect you with like-minded friends so that your learning journey will be fun and interesting.
Do not hesitate to contact our Admin team if you have any questions about the SkillsFuture Credit.
