About Career Conversion Programme (CCP) for SME Executives

The CCP for SME Executives helps PMETs to reskill and take on new job roles in SMEs, while supporting SMEs to recruit and train the right talent for their organisations.

In addition, the CCP helps PMETs to acclimatise to a SME working environment and acquire the necessary foundational skills in various business functional areas such as human resource, finance, administration and operations, sales and marketing. For PMETs joining from non-SMEs, the CCP will help them to adjust to the SOPs and processes in SMEs, which may differ considerably from a non-SME work environment, requiring multi-tasking and taking on enlarged job scopes.

Programme Details

Newly-hired PMETs will undergo a 3 month programme, which includes a 3-day workshop and structured On-The-Job Training (OJT) at the hiring SME.

Objectives of the 3 Day Workshop

Day 1

PMET hires will learn techniques to help them acclimatise to the SME working environment

Day 2

PMET hires will learn foundational skills in various key business functional areas necessary to operate effectively in an SME environment

Day 3
Joint session between PMETs and their SME supervisors to facilitate interaction and alignment of work expectations, including job descriptions, job tasks and expected deliverables
