This course is for professionals looking to pivot into the green sector or pursue a career in sustainability.

This programme is offered under SCTP to support mid-career individuals wishing to acquire emerging and industry-relevant skills.

It aims to improve employability and facilitate pivoting to job roles in the thriving green sector, particularly in built environment, transport and systems.

The course is a train-and-place programme that is available on a part-time or full-time format that ranges across four months in total.

  • Skills and training advisory prior to course enrolment helps trainees select suitable courses that match their strengths and interests
  • Employment facilitation services and career advisory to enhance trainees’ employment prospects
  • Hats off to the pioneering SCTP learners in "The Future of Smart Building and Smart City"! Their capstone presentations were a testament to their remarkable grasp of technical concepts, especially considering their varied backgrounds (not all in sustainability or built environments). 4 months later, their knowledge has exploded! You're all an inspiration.

    I first met this group of aspiring sustainability professionals at our company visit and where we had engaging discussions of the operations at PLQ together with my colleagues Cecilia Soh and Joelle Chen. They were able to take all the information and articulate it eloquently through their capstone project and even suggested potential solutions that similar to the initiatives we are exploring with our professional consultants. I wish them the best as they embark on their green journey!
