School-to-Work Transition Programme

The School-to-Work Transition Programme was jointly-launched by MSF, MOE and SG Enable in 2014. The programme aims to provide a supporting 'bridge' for students to make the transition from school to workplace, by facilitating suitable job training pathways for potential graduands from Special Education (SPED) students who have the potential to work. The programme begins in the student's final year of schooling and extends for up to one year after the student graduates.


Open Door Programme

The Open Door Programme (ODP) aims to encourage employers to hire, train and integrate persons with disabilities. ODP-registered employers can apply for grants and employment support services. Click here for more information on the ODP, or please email opendoor@sgenable.sg or call 1800-858-5885.


Enabling Employment Credit (EEC)

The Enabling Employment Credit (EEC) is a wage offset scheme to support the employment of persons with disabilities (PwDs).

The EEC will be paid to employers of local employees with disabilities aged 13 and above, and earning below $4,000/month. In addition, employers who hire a PwD who have not been in employment for the past six months will receive an additional wage offset for the first nine months of employment.


Inclusive Business Programme

This programme supports inclusive businesses by directly allocating them HDB shop spaces when at least 20% of their employees are persons with disabilities. In addition, inclusive businesses that are SMEs will enjoy a 30% rental discount for their first three years of tenancy, with the option of renewing for another 3 years.
