The past year has changed the job market in Singapore dramatically, with digital transformation gaining significant traction across almost all sectors. To help professionals keep pace, SAP and Temasek Polytechnic have introduced a seven-month training initiative under the SGUnited Mid-Career Pathways Programme — Company Training (SGUP–CT) for mid-career job seekers.

If you are looking for a job in the Infocomm Technology (ICT) sector, this SkillsFuture-funded training will help you build new capabilities and boost your employability in the hottest growing industry not just in Singapore, but also globally.  

The world’s largest provider of enterprise application software, SAP, and one of Singapore’s leading institutions of higher learning, Temasek Polytechnic, have collaborated to offer this training to help you leap into the workforce of the future.

With SAP-specific qualifications, you will be even better placed to enter this new industry with skills and knowledge that are in high demand.

Did you know that 77 per cent of the world’s transaction revenue touches an SAP system? Being the software market leader, its technology innovations help countless organisations, from small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) or start-ups to global companies, improve and streamline business processes and operations.

What does this mean for a job seeker?

SAP skills such as data analytics and financial accounting can help you stay in demand and dramatically increase your employability across a wide range of industries. SAP is proud to be recognised by Great Place to Work® as the top three Best Workplaces in Asia 2020.

SGUP–CT includes short modular courses with a combination of instructor-led and self- paced e-learning sessions.
