Skillsfuture Festival - Singapore population is estimated to reach 6.9M by 2030, 1 in 4 Singaporean will be aged 65 and above.
Regardless of the economy, people will still visit doctors when they are sick, and the older a person, the more the ailments require professional care.
Thus, healthcare is a recession-proof industry, healthcare employees enjoy greater job security, as well as career advancement in this growing sector. Interestingly, there are thus also lots of job openings in the healthcare sector.
As a Caregiver, you can work in various levels of healthcare positions available in Hospitals, Nursing Homes, Community Care, Homecare, Healthcare Assistants, Senior Care Associates, Freelance Caregivers, and most require academic excellence and long years of studies to be certified fit to practice, eg, Doctors, Nurses, Physiotherapists, Dietitian, etc. However, there is one level that has the most job openings and requires only a 5 weeks of full-time study or 3 months of part-time study (specifically, the WSQ Certificate in Healthcare) to be eligible to work as a Healthcare Assistant in any healthcare facility and also join home care agencies to work freelance caregivers. SKILLSFUTURE FESTIVAL is the best opportunity to level up your skills and job position.
