Mr Ong Hua Han: To ask the Minister for Social and Family Development (a) what is the mean duration that special education (SPED) school students remain in employment after completing the School-to- Work (S2W) Transition Programme; and (b) what is the average salary of students who complete the programme.
Introduced in 2014, the School-to-Work (S2W) Transition Programme provides customised training pathways and internship opportunities to help work-capable Special Education (SPED) graduates transit into employment.
71% of SPED graduates placed into employment through the S2W Transition Programme between FY2018 to FY2021 remained in employment as of end 2022. Based on CPF contributions, they had earned an average monthly salary of $1,100, across those who do part-time and full-time work.
