Settling In Programme for 1st timer helpers
The Settling-in Programme (SIP) in Singapore is a compulsory program for foreign domestic workers who have recently arrived in Singapore to work. The program is designed to help these workers adjust to life in Singapore and to familiarize them with the country’s culture, laws, and customs. The new helper needs to attend SIP within 7 days of her arrival in Singapore excluding Sundays and public holidays.
Attendance of SIP if mandatory for helpers who have never worked in Singapore before. The program consists of a one-day workshop that covers a range of topics, including Singapore’s culture and social norms, employment laws and regulations, personal safety and security, and the resources available to foreign workers in Singapore.
During the workshop, participants will also have the opportunity to interact with other foreign workers and to ask questions of the trainers and facilitators. At the end of the program, participants will receive a certificate of attendance.
The SIP is an important part of Singapore’s efforts to integrate foreign workers into the country’s workforce and society. It helps to ensure that foreign workers are aware of their rights and responsibilities and that they are able to navigate the challenges of living and working in a foreign country.
