Course Overview

With Large Language Models (LLMs) demonstrating remarkable capabilities across a diverse range of tasks, we have introduced the LLM Application Developer Programme (LADP), a strategic Generative AI initiative in collaboration with SGTech, to help companies accelerate their adoption of LLMs. In this course, participants will be equipped with the fundamental knowledge and skills in prompt engineering, which is an emerging field in artificial intelligence (AI) that specialises in creating and refining prompts, to effectively leverage LLMs.

Participants will develop their LLM-powered applications using low-code platforms with the aim of deploying them in their workplace. LADP is designed based on our award-winning AIAP model. Participants will undergo our 2-phase apprenticeship model (Deep-skilling phase and Project phase) where they will be equipped with the required know-how to build and deploy LLM-powered applications in their workplace.

Target Audience

Each company can send up to 4 working professionals per team with an interest in solving problems using LLM. Companies can send multiple teams.


  • Existing problem statement(s) from the participant’s workplace with plans to deploy the LLM-powered application
  • Endorsement from the participant’s reporting officer
  • Depending on participants’ problem statements and skillsets, appropriate development tools will be recommended

Eligibility, Terms and Conditions

Entry to LADP is subject to the following criteria:

  1. Singapore-registered companies or public agencies
  2. Participant MUST be a Singaporean or Singapore PR
  3. Participating companies/organisation must have their own Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud Platform (GCP) or other company approved platform


LADP’s objective is to equip participants with the knowledge and skills in prompt engineering, including Zero-shot Learning, Few-shot Learning, ReAct, and RAG, to build deployable LLM-powered applications with appropriate development tools that effectively address workplace problem statements.

Participants are required to have their problem statement(s) from their respective companies, and, through LADP, develop deployable LLM-power applications to address the problem statement(s). There are two phases in LADP: the Deep-skilling phase and the Project phase.

Deep-skilling Phase – 4 weeks

Participants will undergo asynchronous, self-directed learning using the e-learning materials developed by AISG’s AIAP Team to equip themselves with a strong theoretical understanding of critical concepts in LLM, including Prompt engineering techniques and Agents.

Duration: 4 weeks
Total Expected Self-Learning Hours: 8 Hours
Delivery Mode: Asynchronous learning

Note: Participants do not need to report to AISG during the Deep-skilling phase. Participants are expected to independently manage their schedules to fulfill the learning requirements.

1Introduction to Natural Language Processing (NLP) and Large Language Model (LLM)
2Prompt Engineering Techniques, including Zero-shot, Few-shot and Chain-of-Thought
3Concept of Agents, including ReAct, and Retrieval Augmented Generation (RAG)
4Ethics And Governance: Responsible development of LLM-powered applications
Project Phase – 12 Weeks

Participants will build LLM-powered applications to address their respective company’s problem statements. AISG Mentors will provide project consultation sessions, leading to the deployment of the LLM-powered application as the end goal. Knowledge transfer sessions will also be conducted at the start of the Project Phase to equip participants with the hands-on knowledge they need to kick-start their LLM project.

Duration: 12 weeks
Total Expected Working Hours for Project: 120 hours over 12 Sprints
Consultation Hours with AISG AI Mentors: 6 mandatory consultations (up to 2 hours per consultation)
Delivery Mode for Knowledge Transfer Sessions: Physical at AISG’s office
Delivery Mode for Project Consultation Sessions: Physical or Virtual Meeting

Note: Participants do not need to report to AISG during the Project phase. Participants are expected to independently manage their schedules to complete the projects.


  • Knowledge and skills in prompt engineering and usage of appropriate development tools to build LLM-powered applications
  • Deployable LLM-powered application crafted to address the company’s problem statement
