Industry Skills Credit

In the spirit of supporting our students to further develop their employability and industry skills, SCWO is introducing an Industry Skills Credit scheme to help overseas undergraduates and postgraduate students of Islamic Studies enhance their competencies in the ever-changing job market. 

Adapted from the SkillsFuture Credit initiative, this scheme supports successful applicants with a one-time training credit amount of $500, on a reimbursement basis, to attend suitable courses offered under Myskillsfuture portal that are approved and deemed suitable by SCWO. To allow for more students to have the opportunity to empower themselves, each student is able to tap on our Industry Skills Credit once throughout their studies.
