The SGUnited Mid-Career Pathways Programme was introduced in July 2020 as part of the SGUnited Jobs and Skills Package. It will provide 14,500 traineeships and training opportunities for mid-career jobseekers to gain meaningful industry-relevant experience that will better position them to take on employment as the economy recovers. Under the programme, individuals can choose either an attachment or a full-time training course.

The SkillsFuture Month 2020, held from 17 July 2020 to 16 August 2020, will feature a series of mostly virtual and a few physical events. These events will cater to Singaporeans at different stages of their careers and life, and share more about the range of training opportunities for jobseekers, especially mid-careerists, who have been affected by the economic impact of COVID-19. Organised by SkillsFuture Singapore (SSG) and various partners, the SkillsFuture Month supports the efforts of the National Jobs Council.
