“One ITE System, Three Colleges”
To set off a new wave of transformation, ITE adopted a “One ITE System, Three Colleges” Education and Governance Model, as announced by the Minister for Education at ITE Graduation Ceremony on 12 October 2004.
ITE campuses were further enhanced and renamed as Colleges under the new Model. Its first Regional Campus at Simei, ITE College East, was the first instalment of the “One ITE System, Three Colleges” System. The other two mega-campuses, ITE College West and ITE College Central, replacing ITE West Network and ITE East Network, would open in 2009 and 2011, respectively. ITE College West would be sited at Choa Chu Kang and ITE College Central at Ang Mo Kio.
by the “One ITE System”, ITE Colleges would have
greater autonomy to run their operations and deploy their resources, consistent
with ITE’s corporate vision and strategic goals. Each College would
be able to respond to the market and carve out its own niche, while offering
ITE’s trademark courses in Engineering, Business Studies, Info-Communications
Technology and Service Skills. There would be greater innovation, diversification
and competition, which could help develop Colleges of Excellence in technical
education, in teaching and student development.
