Community of Practice for Job Coaches in Disability Sector
The Community of Practice (CoP) is a platform for disability job coaches and employment specialists (who provide job support for persons with disabilities) to learn and collaborate with one another, as well as strengthen their competencies, with the aim of delivering better employment services to persons with disabilities and employers.
In each session, held once every two months, CoP members will discuss cases and challenges faced, share best practices and learn from their counterparts and other experts, including overseas practitioners - on finding solutions that provide strong and sustainable employment support for persons with disabilities and employers.
If you would like to share your experiences and learn from other sector professionals, join us as a CoP member by completing the form here.
If you have any queries regarding CoP, please email us at email@example.com.
In-House Job Coach Programme
Unlike job coaches who are typically from social service agencies, in-house job coaches are identified from within organisations that hire persons with disabilities and bring with them strong industry knowledge. They support the beneficiaries' integration at work, and help them with interpersonal skills and career planning.
We encourage employers to hire their own in-house job coaches or identify them within their organisation, so as to build their in-house capability to support the integration of employees with disabilities at the workplace.
Discover more about the integral role that in-house job coaches play in strengthening their organisation's disability-inclusive hiring efforts for growth and sustainability.
Ms Cha San San, a Service Manager in Shangri-La Singapore's Human Resources (Training) department, is among the many who have taken part in our pilot programme to train in-house job coaches. Ms Cha attended trainings such as the Advanced Certificate in Supported Employment, to equip herself as an in-house job coach to better support her colleagues with disabilities.
Read The Straits Times article (6 Dec 2021) to learn more about Ms Cha's experience as an in-house job coach.
SG Enable offers training and training subsidies for in-house job coaches. Employers who are interested to learn more can email firstname.lastname@example.org.
