Support for Students with
Special Education Needs (SEN)

 

Vision for SEN Support in Ngee Ann

An inclusive community that promotes a culture of openness, understanding and mutual support to students with Special Education Needs (SEN). At Ngee Ann Polytechnic (NP), we want you to have a holistic education experience and campus life, attain useful life skills to be independent, and gain meaningful employment after graduation.

Counselling Service

At NP, we care for our students and we want to journey alongside with you. Our counsellors can provide you with confidential and professional counselling.

Financial Assistance

In March 2014, a SEN Fund has been set up by the Ministry of Education to allow polytechnic students with physical, hearing or visual impairment (PI, HI or VI) to have equal access to their institutions’ programmes and services, as well as learn to be independent learners and workers. You can tap into the SEN Fund to purchase Assistive Technology (AT) devices and support services.
