Education and Career Guidance
Education & Career Guidance
Education & Career Guidance(ECG) is about equipping students with essential knowledge, skills and values to make informed decisions for life post-secondary school.
Through the school’s ECG activities, we aim to help students:
- discover their interests, abilities and passion,
- learn more about the world of work and explore the many possible pathways,
- make considered decisions about their education and career plans, and stay on track to achieve them, and
- be a lifelong learner who is adaptable and resilient, and equipped with the 21st century competencies, values and skills.
1) MySkillsFuture Portal
The ECG Portal – MySkillsFuture is a valuable source of information and knowledge for students. By completing the surveys on the portal, students learn more about their interests, strengths and work values. The portal is also a guide to their post-secondary education. Students are able to learn more about the education landscape, and explore the Post-Secondary Education Institutions (PSEIs) as well as the courses offered by these institutions. They also learn about the world of work, acquiring knowledge of the Singapore Industry Landscape and the various job roles.
2) Collaboration with PSEIs
On top of normal ECG lessons, the school also works with various post-secondary institutions to give students more in-depth and firsthand knowledge of what education life is like post-secondary school.
- i) Temasek Polytechnic (TP) Open House
Our students attended the Temasek Polytechnic Open House in January this year. During the visit, student ambassadors of TP brought our students around the academic schools, sharing with them firsthand experiences of life as TP students. Our students also learnt about the projects that students from TP were engaged in when they visited the booths set up by the various schools.
- ii) e-ECG Fair 2020
From 3 to 5 June, a series of talks was conducted by representatives from TP who shared with our Sec 4 and 5 students information about the various academic courses in TP. Our students gained valuable insight about the courses that they were keen in.
3) Workshops by career guidance counsellors from Career Guidance Unit
In preparation for their EAE interviews, our graduating class students attended interview workshops conducted by career guidance counsellors from the Career Guidance Unit. During the workshops, our students practised how to answer interview questions in mock interview sessions. Through the sessions, our students gained confidence in their interview skills.
