EDUCATION & CAREER GUIDANCE
Objective of Education & Career Guidance (ECG)
To prepare Newtowners for the world beyond secondary school life
Upper Sec ECG Fair:
– To showcase the changing landscape of the world of careers
– To share the significance of having the right mindset, values and skills in preparing for the future
– To inspire students to be forward-thinking and resilient in responding to future challenges
The school organises an annual Upper Sec ECG Fair for all Sec 3-5 students, where speakers from post-secondary education institutions as well as various industry partners are invited to provide insights on the ever-changing world of work. Students get to choose the talks they would like to listen to and this provides them the ownership over their own learning.
Sec 3 Work Attachment Programme:
– To allow students the opportunity to appreciate the myriad of different jobs available in the various sectors
– To provide students the first-hand experience in the working world
– To develop life skills and good working habits
Selected Sec 3 students can take part in the Work Attachment Programme, where they will be attached to partner organisations for a period of one to three days. Before the programme, they will be provided with training and a mentor who will also guide them throughout their work attachment experience. Students who are keen on the programme should indicate their interest when the work attachment programme details are released.
