Sheltered Employment Training

The Sheltered Employment Training (SET) is a one year programme aimed at preparing individuals with mental, physical and/or intellectual disabilities for employment. Clients are assigned to small groups with job coaches who focus on punctuality, work ethics, independent living, communication and social skills.

The objective of this initiative is to offer a simulated working environment and possibly to move towards sheltered employment and eventually to open employment. Clients have the opportunity to receive hands-on training in different tasks such as back office work, assembly of products, packaging material, dismantling of electronic devices and more. Participants are continuously monitored and informally assessed by job coaches who use different home grown assessments to record improvements and level of productivity. Job coaches are entrusted to carry out a professional assessment of each client to determine the development process during this experience. Job coaches are also requested to provide recommendations on diverse training according to the client’s needs and work preferences.

Eligibility criteria

  • Registered persons with disability who are willing to enter the labour market.
