Skills Development

At ACMI, we provide vocational and language courses for migrants living in Singapore to improve and expand their skillsets holistically. These courses aim to equip them with practical skills that they can apply in their everyday life or cultivate an interest that they may not have had the time to pursue previously. Through attending these courses, migrants also forge bonds with like-minded individuals, building additional pillars of support in the community.

The courses span over two semesters – the first in-take in January and then in July. Stay tuned in October for the announcement on registration of courses for 2023, semester 1.
