National Council of Social Service


The National Council of Social Service (NCSS) is the coordinating body for over 450 social service agencies in Singapore. With the charter to improve the lives of the disadvantaged in Singapore, it aims to provide leadership and direction in social services, enhance the capabilities of social service organisations and promote strategic partnerships for the sector.

During the course of studies, scholars will be given opportunities to participate in training and developmental programmes and engage regularly with sector leaders. Such initiatives will enable them to hone their professional and leadership skills, leaving them fully equipped to make a great impact as a leader in the social service sector.

Potential Career Path
Upon graduation scholars will be deployed to work at one of NCSS’ 450 social service agencies, and they can expect to be rotated across agencies to experience working in different areas/domains during their tenure. 

Scholars can also look forward to development support during their employment, to allow deepening of practice skills and leadership development, and through the postings, scholars can acquire breadth of sector knowledge and depth of practice experience.
