SBL Scheme

The SBL Scheme (Skim Bantuan Latihan)

For programmes/courses under the SBL Scheme, prior approval must be obtained from the Council's Secretariat. Under the scheme, employers are free to identify their own training needs and formulate training programmes to retrain and upgrade their employees’ skills in line with their operational and business requirements. Training can be conducted either on-the-job, off-the-job or a combination of both to suit the requirements of enterprises.

Training programmes can be carried out by their own trainers or where there is a lack of expertise, by external trainers. Where local expertise is not available, enterprises can also engage qualified trainers from overseas. To qualify for training grants, training programmes must be structured and have :-

  • Specific training objectives.
