New scheme to help 300 mid-career PMETs enter biomedical science sector over the next year

SINGAPORE: A new professional conversion programme (PCP) has been launched to help mid-career professionals, managers, executives and technicians (PMETs) join the biomedical science sector, which is still seeing growth despite the pandemic-induced economic downturn.

The 18-month PCP for Advanced Biopharmaceuticals Manufacturing Professionals and Executives is set to benefit 300 PMETs over the next year, said the Economic Development Board (EDB) and Workforce Singapore (WSG) in a joint press release on Wednesday (Aug 26).

The new scheme will replace the Attach-and-Train programme for biologics manufacturing – which was launched in November 2018 and has helped 185 people enter the sector so far – and go beyond biologics manufacturing to include specialisations in pharmaceuticals manufacturing, and cell and gene therapy.
