Got 3 tracks: internships, apprenticeships, and sponsorships for further studies.
Mr Alvin Tan said, “the financial sector offers good jobs and rewarding careers for polytechnic graduates.”

Internships: Get Job-Ready Like a Boss
First up, internships for poly students.

They’ll even fund 80% of your monthly internship stipend, capped at S$1,000 per month for up to 12 months!
