SINGAPORE - Those interested in a first-hand experience of pre-school jobs can join a traineeship programme launched today.

They will get two weeks of on-the-job training, receive allowance of at least $4.50 an hour and a "completion incentive" of $200 if they attend at least 75 per cent of the programme. They also receive another $300 if they go on to take up a job in the pre-school sector.

Through the programme, trainees can have a better understanding of the job requirements, while pre-school operators can gauge trainees' job suitability before offering them positions, said the Singapore Workforce Development Agency (WDA) and the Early Childhood Development Agency in a joint statement.

Those interested in the scheme can find out more through the WDA career centres co-located at the community development councils.
