Claim SkillsFuture Credit on SKLS Courses
SKLS Korean Language Courses have been approved by SkillsFuture Singapore (SSG) for SkillsFuture Credit!
Students may claim SkillsFuture Credit for eligible SKLS courses on or after 1st December 2016.

All claims made will be paid out from SSG to the school directly.
