The Global Ready Talent Programme (GRT) was launched on 10 October 2019 by Mr Chan Chun Sing – Minister for Trade and Industry. Through the GRT, the ministry aims to build a pipeline of global-ready talent for Singapore enterprises through exposing more Singaporeans to internships and overseas work opportunities. The Association has been appointed by ESG as one of the programme partners.
Under the GRT programme, Singapore enterprises can tap funding support to offer local and overseas internship placements to students from the institutes of higher learning (IHL). Companies can receive up to 70% funding on the monthly internship stipend.
As a programme partner, SLA would facilitate internship placements and evaluate companies who want to participate in the GRT - Local and Overseas internships for IHL students.
