Employment Support Programme | SPD - Singapore


Employment Support Programme


    Employment gives people with disabilities financial freedom and a sense of self-worth when they are a contributing member of the society. A number of our programmes are geared towards preparing people with disabilities for employment and they are supported by our Employment Support team that consists of employment support specialists, trainers, occupational therapists, assistive technology specialists and social workers.


    Through the Employment Support Programme (ESP), we help people with physical disabilities as well as hearing and visual impairments secure open employment. In addition, job support of up to at least six months is provided to ensure that clients whom we have placed in open employment are able to adapt and cope with the job and working environment.


    Courses on improving employability are also available. We offer training in computer skills with WSQ certification, general administrative skills and phone skills, in addition to work preparation training.


    Eligible applicants will undergo vocational training and employment planning assessments.
