Our Approach

We are currently looking for students with Special Educational Needs (SEN) enrolled in polytechnics in Singapore. In this 4-week programme, participants will explore various career paths together with like-minded peers & have access to flexible learning tracks to learn more about in-demand skills while receiving mentorship under professionals. On top of that, participants will have an opportunity to participate in the Inclusive Champion Competition & win attractive prizes. 

A graduation ceremony to award certificates for the completion of the programme will be held on the last day of the programme.

The TomoWork Talent Accelerator Programme

TomoWork encourages employers to leverage on diversity in the workplace & empowers Persons with Disabilities (PWDs) to achieve gainful employment. Through the Talent Accelerator Programme, we offer the opportunity for unemployed PWDs to gain a better understanding of their talents through exciting corporate-sponsored projects & curated learning experiences to secure better job opportunities in the digital sector.

After launching TomoWork in September 2019, we have completed three runs of our Talent Accelerator Programme. The most recent batch occurred from March to May 2021 & was held in collaboration with Temasek Polytechnic.

Singapore, 24th March 2021 Sumitomo Life Insurance (Sumitomo Life) and Temasek Polytechnic (TP) have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to launch a digital talent accelerator programme dedicated to persons with disabilities (PWDs).

TomoWork's A.B.L.E. Webinar Series

At TomoWork, we believe that Abilities, Belonging, Leadership, Empowerment (A.B.L.E) are the key success factors in achieving the goal of an inclusive workplace. We embarked on the TomoWork A.B.L.E. Webinar series at the height of COVID-19, when we were seeking stability in a time of uncertainty. We felt that this was a crucial time to foreground the importance of Diversity & Inclusion by opening up a dialogue on how Persons with Disabilities & Corporates can work in tandem to build inclusive ecosystems.

Going forward, we want to ensure that we uplift everyone as we recover, rebuild, and reach new heights.
