What is the difference between workfare income supplement and workfare training support?

Workfare is and has always been a key pillar of Singapore's social security landscape and there are two schemes. There's the workfare income suppolement and the workfare training support scheme. I want to know more about the differences between these schemes and the qualifications for these schemes andtheir benefits.
