Trade agency International Enterprise (IE) Singapore recently signed agreements with the five Singapore polytechnics to increase overseas internship opportunities to their students under the Young Talent Programme (YTP).
The YTP offers funding for international job attachments and aims to develop and attract young talent to meet the needs of local companies with operations abroad. With the new agreements, more Singaporeans will be able to acquire skills and experiences necessary to work overseas.
Acting Minister for Education Ong Ye Kung said in a speech that the YTP helps to expand students’ educational experiences and gives students a global perspective that extends beyond Singapore.
