PROGRAM

What are Training Hours In LemmeLearn?

We run a 3-hour-training from every Tuesday to Friday. This is subject to revision by the Center.

How long does the program last for?

This all depends on the ability of the student when (s)he comes in. We are in the midst of streamlining our program to lead students towards a paid internship within 12 months. After the assessment, we will identify whether that student falls under our 12-month Internship Track.

Where will my child be trained at?

Pre-training will be held on the 1st Floor of Secawan Hutton Cafe. On-site training will be held at our various partner companies, ranging from F&B, Office, Retail and Manufacturing Factory. Find out more here.

Bakery and Urban Farming are two potential settings we are in discussion with for On-site training. More sites to come!

My child is very different from everyone else. Can he fit in?

If your child is accepted into LemmeLearn’s vocational program, we will ensure that we personalize your child’s goals to meet their needs.

The LemmeLearn team brainstorm every single student to ensure that each student makes step-by-step progress towards vocational and functional living independence.

Why do you place my child at so many different sites?

We have found that growing up, many young adults with special needs have missed out on opportunities and experiences, limiting their skills and knowledge. The first three to five months, we try to place them at different sites to help them :

  • Socialize with different people
  • Try a variety of different tasks
  • Assess their own areas of strengths
  • Gain awareness of their own job likes and dislikes

Your child will be able to explore new skills and strengthen existing ones in different work sites and identify which fits them best.

When will my child get to focus at a specific work/skill area?

Usually after three to five months, the LemmeLearn team together with the child and his family, will decide on areas of strength/interest and discuss an area of focus to project for the future.

What happens if I am unable to afford to pay for the entirety of the fees?

You may sign up for our sponsorship program to have a percentage of your fees sponsored. Please take note that everyone signing up for sponsorship must be prepared to go through an interview with LemmeLearn and their sponsor to explain their financial needs and show proof of income.

Does LemmeLearn guarantee employment at the end of the program?

If your child has been accepted onto our 12-month Internship Track, we do see your child all the way to their paid internship and provide guidance, liaising with the company until your child is off the LemmeLearn program.
