Bottom line is: Once no more gahmen funding they will let u go.
agreed. the govt funding is 50% of salary and no CPF contribution requirement. can you imagine the amount of cost incurred to convert to full time, including CPF contributions?
trainee: ~2.5k (OCBC pays 1.25k only)
full time: ~3.8k (OCBC pays 4.44k with CPF)

don't forget, they also hired for the GTP. so traineeship is EXTRA hires. they have already fulfilled their talent quota. trainees are like interns, used for short term only.
