Generation Singapore Launches GenAbled: Digital Bootcamp Training for Persons with Disabilities

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Generation Singapore and Inclus pave the way for inclusive careers in Cloud Operations through groundbreaking programme

Singapore, 21 December 2023 – Generation Singapore announces the launch of GenAbled – a digital training programme in Cloud Operations for persons with disabilities.

In line with the International Day for Persons with Disabilities, this marks a significant step to broaden career opportunities for persons with disabilities in high-value tech-heavy jobs that put them at the forefront of the digital economy.   

Demand-driven curriculum and dedicated job placement support

Generation Singapore is part of Generation: You Employed, a global non-profit that helps people achieve economic mobility through employment. Having started its operations in Singapore since 2018 and offering train-and-place courses for vulnerable job seekers such as mid-careerists, underprivileged women, and other needful segments, this is the first time Generation has broadened its offering to the community of persons with disabilities. 

Slated to commence in early 2024, the 3-month pilot training boot camp aims to equip persons with disabilities with the skills and opportunities to pursue a career in tech.

The curriculum is intentionally crafted to prepare learners for entry-level roles as Cloud Development Operations Engineers, including specialised knowledge to build, deploy, and optimise cloud-based applications.  Designed based on input from employers in the GetReadySG programme, which Generation has run with Microsoft, SkillsFuture Singapore, IMDA since 2022, this demand-driven approach ensures that learners graduate with comprehensive and relevant knowledge that will allow them to hit the ground running in their new job.

Accessible Learning Environment and Support

The programme welcomes all individuals without minimum educational qualifications.  To ensure training readiness, applicants will be screened by Generation Singapore and Inclus, a social enterprise focusing on skills-based hiring. The programme is funded by Enabling Academy, the disability learning hub by SG Enable. Learners with disabilities enrolling in the programme can receive up to 95% course fee funding to support them in training.

Learners are also provided with employability support, and job placement assistance post-graduation by Generation Singapore.  In addition, learners will receive mentorship support from tech industry professionals from Generation Singapore’s alumni pool, and access to subsidised counselling support in partnership with Eagles Mediation & Counselling Centre.

“Persons with disabilities often face unique challenges in accessing career opportunities, and this program aims to bridge that gap, offering a tailored approach to empower them in the field of technology. We are steadfast in our belief that employment opportunities should be accessible to everyone, regardless of background or circumstance, and this program is a testament to our commitment to inclusivity and diversity in the workforce. Ultimately, we want to create a supportive ecosystem that recognises and nurtures the talents of individuals with diverse abilities,” said Gloria Arlini, Chief Operating Officer at Generation Singapore.

“With digital skills becoming increasingly transferable and in high demand across different sectors, we encourage persons with disabilities to develop these skill sets to boost their professional development and support their personal growth. We are delighted to see Generation Singapore, a valued training partner, take substantial strides in improving the accessibility of digital programmes for the disability sector. This resonates deeply with our mission to unlock the potential of persons with disabilities through lifelong learning.” says May Koh, General Manager of Enabling Academy, SG Enable

“Inclus strongly believes in the collaboration of the Public, People and Private sectors in creating sustainable value and employment for people with disabilities. Through this collaboration, we aim to break barriers, challenge norms, add to the synergy between systems and pave the way for a more inclusive society that provides equal opportunities for people with disabilities. This programme will create more opportunities for people with disabilities who are interested in the field of technology and contribute to our mission to create a society where opportunities are accessible to everyone.” says Anders Tan, Founder of Inclus
