Food Services: PCP for Food Services Executives
Reskill your competencies to take on new jobs
What is it?

As part of the Adapt and Grow initiative to provide greater support for mid-career Professionals, Managers, Executives and Technicians (PMET) jobseekers, the Workforce Singapore Agency (WSG) has developed a new Professional Conversion Programme (PCP) for Food Services Executives.

The PCP for Food Services Executives aims to attract new entrants and help mid-career PMETs re-skill with the necessary competencies to embark on a career in the Food Services sector. It will include a structured training plan to facilitate and enhance the employability for those looking to switch their careers and take on jobs in the Food Services sector.

The PCP for Food Services Executives will also help Food Services companies tap on additional sources of manpower and meet their manpower needs by providing mid-career switchers with an opportunity to enter the Food Services profession. Through structured classroom and OJT, companies are also able to align training according to their specific business needs.
