Developing Manpower

Businesses in partnership with the other maritime organisations, can promote and benefit from manpower development.

Today’s maritime industry is driven by ever-changing technology and sophisticated business models. This requires a steady stream of highly-qualified professionals to maximise performance and growth.

Maritime-related businesses, in partnership with the Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA), tertiary institutions and other organisations, have developed many initiatives to support manpower development, the ‘software’ of the shipping industry.

From continuous development and training programmes to postgraduate studies, scholarships to sponsorships, attachment programmes to professorships, Singapore offers a wide choice of quality manpower development initiatives, many of which are funded or supported by the MPA. Businesses can tap on the Maritime Cluster Fund (MCF) which supports or sponsors a variety of programmes to develop maritime expertise.

There are also other scholarship schemes that sponsor talented students who want to join the maritime industry.

Make use of Set Sail!, a MPA publication, to learn more about all these manpower development initiatives and resources your organization can tap on, in order to meet your talent needs.
