Step 1: Developing a marketable skill (FREE)
Before you actually start your online business, you first need to develop a skill that can be marketed and sold. Some hobby cooks or home bakers may have already naturally picked these up. But even if you don’t have any experience in the kitchen, it’s easier now more than ever to pick up the skills you need!
Besides simply learning from online recipes and guides, you can also make use of your SkillsFuture Credits to sign up for relevant courses, taught by professional trainers to the same standards as a culinary diploma. Simply visit the SkillsFuture website
and browse the many courses eligible for SkillsFuture Credits. All Singaporeans aged 25 and above have $500 opening credit available to them, and those aged 40 to 60 by December 2020 have an additional $500 credit claimable for Career Transition Programmes, which also includes certain food services diplomas.
