Singapore to finance practicing over 4,000 preschool instructors


SINGAPORE, March. 16 — Singapore sets aside a fund to aid practicing over 4,000 pre-school instructors within the next three year, Acting Minister for Community Development, Youth and Sports Chan Chun Sing stated in Parliament on Tuesday.

Based on his statement, the town-state’s Labor force Development Agency will, underneath the Labor force Abilities Qualifications program, subsidize as much as 90 % of coaching course costs and supply companies by having an absentee payroll subsidy as high as 80 % from the employee’s salary.

Besides, the federal government will even provide scholarship grants and teaching honours as much as almost ten million Singapore dollars (8.two million U.S. dollars) within the next 2 yrs, to draw in new instructors and encourage existing ones to upgrade their professional qualifications.

“Our efforts have experienced some results,” stated Chan, foreseeing that employment within the sector increased by 25 %, while attrition fell from 15 to 13 percent this past year.[db:内容2]
