Tech Immersion and Placement Programme (TIPP)


The Tech Immersion and Placement Programme (TIPP) aims to convert non-ICT professionals, into industry-ready ICT professionals. They will be placed into tech job roles, after undergoing an immersive training course, or mentorship and coaching programme, delivered by industry practitioners.

Through the immersive training courses or mentorship and coaching programme, trainees will build an impressive portfolio of ICT projects. They also get to interact with leading experts in the respective fields, to help them prepare for roles in the ICT industry such as web developers, agile software developers, mobile app developers, user experience designers, and data analysts.

Trainees who completed the course/programme will be provided with job placement facilitation by the TIPP partner. Placement into company job roles generally include the following:
  • Full Time Employment (Permanent, Contract work or Working for Equity);
  • Change of job role to a relevant tech role.

Eligibility Criteria


The programme supports Singaporeans such as:
  • Non-ICT professionals including mid-career switchers without ICT background and interested in a tech career;
  • Current ICT professionals interested in upskilling in preparation for new tech positions; and
  • Fresh graduates from STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) background or other disciplines, with a passion to join or build a tech start-up.
Trainees are expected to seek job placement upon completion of their training courses or mentorship programmes.
