AIC is now a WSG Programme Partner for the Early Childhood Care and Education Sector

Asian International College (AIC) has been appointed by Workforce Singapore (WSG) as a Programme Partner for the Early Childhood Care and Education (ECCE) sector, with effect from 1 Jan 2012 until 31 Mar 2015. The funding level for AIC to provide ECCE teacher education is the same as that accorded to the ECCE Continuing Education and Training (CET) Centre:

  • 70%-90% WSG Course Fee Funding for ECCE WSQ Full Qualification courses (Certificate and Diploma programmes) - up from 50%
  • 70%-90% WSG Course Fee Funding for ECCE WSQ Continuing Professional Development (CPD) modular units - up from 25%-45%
  • Trainees who are self-sponsored and not working are now eligible for funding as well
  • Students who attain their first WSQ qualification will be eligible to apply for the CET Qualification Award (CQA) of up to $1,000 cash from WSG
  • 90%-95% Course Fee Support for Singaporeans aged 35 years and above earning up to $1,700 monthly, under the Workfare Training Support (WTS) scheme

To receive the higher course fee support, a low wage worker only needs to bring his/her NRIC and WTS/WIS notification letter to AIC to sign up for training.

  • Employers who send their low wage workers for WSQ courses at AIC can also receive the higher course fee support shown in Table 1. In addition, they can claim a higher Absentee Payroll to cover the salaries of their low wage workers when they are away at training (Table 2).
