This programme supports the Singapore Furniture Industry Council’s (SFIC) 2025 industry roadmap which aims to establish Singapore as the Asian hub influencing tomorrow’s urban living. Over the past few years, the furniture sector has undergone substantial change. More furniture retailers and manufacturers are investing in e-commerce solutions to better serve their consumers and diversify sales risk as a result of shifting consumer tastes and purchasing patterns. The creation of furniture is also shifting toward being more environmentally friendly, using more readily available and recyclable materials.
SFIC, through its training and skills development arm SFIC Institute, is the programme partner of Workforce Singapore (WSG) for the CCP for Furniture Industry Talent. Career Conversion Programme for Furniture Industry Talent enables employers to hire and train new hires without relevant prior experience through a structured 3 to 6-month long On-the-Job Training (OJT)* to facilitate their conversion into the furniture industry.
