Temasek Cares – Special Needs Building Capability Project
Building capabilities of the Special Needs sector in Singapore
Partner: National Council of Social Service (NCSS)
The Special Needs sector provides services to people with physical, sensory and intellectual disabilities as well as those with mental illness. To meet growing demand, the sector needs to train more therapists and early-intervention teachers.
As part of its efforts to build the capability of the Special Needs sector, Temasek Cares is partnering with the National Council of Social Service (NCSS) to offer Study Awards and Training Awards to attract new talents and to upgrade the skills of existing workers.
Temasek Cares Study Awards are available for the following programmes: Study Award for WDA (Workforce Development Agency) Professional Conversion Programme for Therapists, Study Award for Therapists (New Entrants) and Study Award for Early Intervention Teachers. More information on the awards, including contact information are available at www.ncss.org.sg.
