Overview

Introduction

Changi Airport is widely recognised as one of the world’s best international airports. Singapore Airlines is also one of the top airlines in the world. Building on our strengths as an air hub, Singapore has developed a leading aerospace industry that includes maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO), manufacturing and other aerospace-related services. 

Today, there are over 100 aerospace companies in Singapore. We possess nose-to-tail capabilities that include airframe maintenance, engine overhaul, structural and avionics systems repair. These core competencies, coupled with our commitment to quality and safety, have made Singapore a recognised one-stop solutions provider for airlines’ maintenance and repair needs. 

This SkillsFuture Earn & Learn Programme (ELP) for the Aerospace sector is an 18-month work-learn programme that aims to equip participants with relevant skillsets and knowledge needed to support the aerospace industry. Upon completion of the programme, participants will be awarded the WSQ Specialist Diploma in Aerospace certification.

Target Participants

Singaporeans or Singapore Permanent Residents who are fresh Polytechnic graduates from relevant full-time aerospace/engineering-related courses of study and aspire to pursue a career as a Licensed Aircraft Engineer (LAE) may apply.

Please see ‘Eligibility Criteria’ for more information. Working adults in the aerospace industry who wish to pick up specialised skills and knowledge should consider our non-ELP courses like the Diploma in Engineering (Aerospace).

Career Opportunities

ELP participants will join established aerospace companies as a Trainee Aircraft Maintenance Engineer and progress through the programme to become a Junior Aircraft Maintenance Engineer1.

Upon successful completion of ELP, participants may look forward to wage increment and role expansion in their workplace, subject to their work performance.

1 Job titles may vary from companies.
