CCP for Food Services Industries

Eligible for SkillsFuture Credit*

The Food Services industry has evolved.

Food Services operators are adopting quick-service formats, online delivery services, cloud kitchens, and hybrid model with a combination of physical stores and cloud kitchens. As Food Services companies continue to innovate in their business models and automate their processes further in their transformation journey, career opportunities at various job levels have been significantly enhanced.

What is CCP & how does it help your business?

Finding the right people with the right skills is hard, but training them and retaining them is even harder. Turnover in the F&B industry is high, and that’s costing companies a lot of money and lost opportunities!

Workforce Singapore (WSG)’s Career Conversion Programme (CCP) for Food Services Industry is part of the holistic support provided to food services companies train and upskill existing workers, as well as attract new entrants and facilitate mid-career switchers into the sector. 

Food service companies are encouraged to review, optimise and value-add to their PMET and non-PMET jobs such as Restaurant Managers, Supervisors, Cooks/Chefs, Service Crew and Kitchen Assistants in order to create higher quality jobs to sustain business growth and retain current local employees. 

This programme is applicable to new and current employees in PMET and non-PMET roles!
