IBF Training Programmes
The Institute of Banking and Finance Singapore (IBF) is an industry association set up to foster and develop the professional competencies of financial practitioners in Singapore. IBF works closely with the Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS), the financial industry and financial training providers to equip financial professionals with skills to progress in their careers. IBF accredits financial sector training programmes and offers professional certification for financial practitioners.
These programmes receive training subsidy from the Financial Sector Development Fund - IBF Standards Training Scheme ("IBF-STS") and Financial Training Scheme ("FTS") and are also eligible for SkillsFuture Credit (subject to eligibility criteria).
Financial professionals and individuals looking to enter the financial industry can attend IBF accredited training programmes to equip themselves with the relevant financial skillsets recognised by the industry. Individuals can also seek IBF Certification (find out more

About the Financial Service Tripartite Committee
The Financial Sector Tripartite Committee (FSTC) is set up to help workers in the financial services sector uplift their skills and capabilities as Singapore prepares to move into its next phase of development towards an advanced economy and inclusive society with a future-ready workforce.
The tripartite collaboration aims to bring together the MAS, NTUC, as well as the unions and businesses to co-own and co-drive the development of the Financial Sector Manpower Plans under the SkillsFuture initiatives. The FSTC plays a critical role in pushing out programmes and initiatives to help ensure the continual and steady stream of quality jobs made available for Singaporeans, and that the financial sector workforce is well-equipped with the skillsets needed as the financial landscape evolves and transforms. Companies in the sector can look forward to receive the necessary support from FSTC in strengthening their capabilities to enhance jobs and business models, while workers in the sector will be given the opportunities to continue to learn and train for the future.
