NTUC Union Training Assistance Programme (UTAP)

UTAP — What is the Union Training Assistance Programme?

UTAP is a training benefit for NTUC members to reduce their cost of training. This is to encourage more NTUC members to go for skills upgrading.

Under this scheme, NTUC members can enjoy 50% off course fees after subtracting the portion of course fees that are government-subsidized. Below is a table illustrating clearer how UTAP subsidy will factor into course fees.

Illustration:

WSQ Certificate in Workplace Safety & Health
(a) Full Course Fees (before Subsidy):*$1,000
(b) Less Government Subsidy (e.g. 90%)-$900
(c) Course Fee Payable (after Subsidy):$100
(d) Less UTAP Funding (50% of Course Fee payable after Government Subsidy):-$50
(e) You Pay:$50
*course fees are only for illustration purposes and may be subjected to changes

Important to Note:

  • ​Only NTUC Ordinary Branch (OB), General Branch (GB) and OB/UCLUB members who are paying $117/year will be eligible
  • 50% UTAP subsidy is capped at $250 annually for NTUC members aged 39 years old and below
  • 50% UTAP subsidy is capped at $500 annually for NTUC members aged 40 years old and above
  • UTAP is only eligible for courses attended between 1 July 2020 to 31 December 2022

Who can apply for UTAP?

Only Ordinary Branch (OB), General Branch (GB) and OB/UCLUB members who are paying $117/year will be eligible. However, the following criteria must be met to be eligible for the subsidy:

  1. Paid-up NTUC membership before course commenced, throughout whole course duration and at the point of claim
  2. Course by training provider must be supported under UTAP, and training must commence within the supported period

  5. Application must be submitted within 6 months after course completion
  6. You must not be blacklisted by SSG for training grants

Trainer Anandan is friendly and knowledgeable in his teaching in the food safety course. He is approachable and easy going and therefore we don't feel tense at all. Thank you sir! Strongly recommned to attend his classes. He should continue teaching this course at a higher level. He is also a trainer in aircon servicing and car maintenance.

Ashley is very friendly and clear in her teachings. She gives a lot of real life situations to emphasize the importance of food hygiene and safety.However, Peter who tested the practical part was unreasonable and scolded me when I tried to explain myself for not taking back the plate of cucumbers that I sold to the customer.

Attended the Food Safety & Hygiene Level 1 course at Toa Payoh on 19 Jan 2024. The class was handled by SHIRLEY WONG (ASHLEY). Thoroughly enjoyed the class. Shirley was not only very clear in her delivery of the course material, but she was a very engaging instructor. Whilst communicating the seriousness of food safety and hygiene, she managed to bring humour and lightness to the class which could otherwise have been boring.Thank you Shirley !!

Attended Food Safety Course Level 1 on 4 Jan 2024 and I enjoyed the class throughly. Our trainer - Anandan S/O Ganesan was very knowledgeable and he delivered the training in a very fun and interactive manner. He made the class very interesting and shared real examples which made it easier for individuals to understand with zero knowledge base.The customer service - Ms Alene was very helpful and responsive to my queries. Enrolling for this course was fuss free and she even provided the step by step in submit course claims using skills future credits. I will definitely recommend Coursemology to my circle of friends.Thank you once again for making my learning journey today a fruitful one.

Attended the Food Safety Course Level 1 on 18 Dec 2023. The trainer Mr Loo Hee Jin is very professional and helpful. At times he explained in Mandarin to enable some non-english speaking learners to understand better. Staff at the Reception Desk are very helpful too. Environment is cosy and hot home-made barley drinks are provided during tea-breaks. Recommend this training school at Toa Payoh Central. Thank you.
