DBS apprenticeship programme to hone students' banking skills

SINGAPORE: DBS will be launching a structured three-year apprenticeship programme to prepare polytechnic students for technology roles in the bank.

Developed in collaboration with Temasek Polytechnic and Nanyang Polytechnic, the DBS FinTech Apprenticeship Programme will take in 20 students this year for a start, with plans to scale up and benefit more across all five polytechnics.

The DBS FinTech Apprenticeship programme is a three-year course that provides students with practical knowledge and industry experience to prepare them for technology roles in the financial sector.

Graduates will undergo a final technology hackathon to formally apply for direct placement in one of their permanent roles.

This new programme also contributes to Singapore's effort towards building a robust pipeline of local fintech talent as outlined by the National Financial Services Industry Transformation Map 2025.

“As a key employer in Singapore, DBS remains committed to developing a robust pipeline of local talent for the banking sector, particularly in growth areas where finance and technology intersect," Jimmy Ng, Group Chief Information Officer and Head of Technology & Operations at DBS said.

“Our collaboration with Temasek Polytechnic and Nanyang Polytechnic diversifies the pathways polytechnic students can take to enter the exciting world of banking and finance."
