Quote from SMS:

“We recognize that this disparity arises from several key factors. Many employers lack an understanding of the unique hurdles faced by people with disabilities. Additionally, there is a lack of coaching and mentorship available to support their early career development. Moreover, social welfare challenges and limited exposure to the working environment during their teenage years contribute to this discrepancy.

Through thorough research, we have identified that teenagers with disabilities do not engage in part-time employment to the same extent as their peers who don’t have a disability. Consequently, they may not possess the necessary skills to navigate common workplace challenges, such as receiving feedback, handling criticism, and managing professional interactions. Early intervention is paramount. By equipping teens with workplace skills and experiences from an early age, we empower them to face these challenges with confidence, paving the way for successful employment in the future”

In addition to the Accelerator School Programme, they have successfully launched the Empowered Programme in September 2023. This programme is designed to empower individuals with disabilities to nurture ambition and achieve their true potential.
