There is no need to raise a PO or do GeBiz Evaluation for ApLM@ITE. Schools can register directly through the application link (https://for.edu.sg/iteaplm), on a first-come-first-served basis and seek the Principal’s approval for the courses. ITE will then require a formal confirmation from the school through an email, copied to the Principal, indicating that approval has been sought. After the students’ completion of the module, ITE will bill the school.
When the schools are unable to fulfil the minimum class size, they can consider the following options:
• Combining their classes in the school and have a range of ApLM@ITE classes to fulfil the minimum class size required.
• Combining ApLM@ITE classes with other schools taking the same module to fulfil the minimum class size. Schools can register for modules indicated “merged class” and these smaller slots of 9-11 pax will be combined to form a class of at least 18 students.*
• Spreading students with irregular attendance across the ApLM@ITE classes so as to reduce the possibility of the class size falling below 18 participants. Schools are advised to ascertain students’ interest and participation before registering the places with ITE for ApLM@ITE, and ensure that the number of students attending an ApLM@ITE class adheres to the number of students registered and confirmed with ITE (as far as possible).
*Depending on the SMM at that point in time, if students are not allowed to intermingle, please check with ITE should there be problems meeting the class size requirement.
If there are changes to the confirmed attendance lists submitted to ITE due to unforeseen circumstances such as student transfers from/to other schools, medical reasons, please inform ITE as soon as possible so that necessary arrangements could be made and ITE trainers can be updated of the changes before course commencement.
Schools are to ensure that there is a minimum of 18 participants for the ApLM@ITE classes after the changes. No swapping of students among the classes registered is allowed upon class commencement.
Schools should inform ITE at least one week before ApLM@ITE class commencement of such cases and provide details of the affected students and date and time to be excused so that ITE trainers can be updated and are able to advise whether this would affect the students’ attendance and in-course assessments.
Affected students could also remind ITE trainers on the first day of the course so that alternative arrangements for in-course assessment can be made if required.
Any cancellation can only be made for unforeseen circumstances at least one month before course commencement.
Schools are advised not to sign up for ApLM@ITE if the course dates coincide with school events or examinations of the relevant classes as this would affect the attendance of the ApLM@ITE. There will be no make-up lessons for ApLM@ITE missed and attendance will be marked accordingly for such cases.
Schools will receive reporting instructions and course guidelines from ITE at least one month before course commencement. Accompanying teachers deployed could be briefed of these instructions and course guidelines. It is advisable to have accompanying teachers if the ApLM@ITE class is a merged class with other school(s).
Schools may wish to deploy subject teachers as the accompanying teachers to better support students’ on-site learning. For example, a PE teacher could be accompanying students attending the ApLM@ITE “Fitness for Life” to provide better follow-up in school, upon completion of the module.
Schools are reminded that for any out-of-school activities, teachers are responsible for the learning outcomes as well as safety of the students. Schools are advised to refer to the guidelines on school safety at: http://intranet.moe.gov.sg/schoolsafety.
Students who attended at least 2 out of 3 days and passed the in-course assessment(s) will be awarded the following certification. The digital certificates will be issued through email within two months from the ApLM@ITE end date.
• Certificate of Completion (with commendation): Attained 80 marks and above for the in-course assessment(s)
• Certificate of Completion: Attained 50 - 79 marks for the in-course assessments(s)
No certificates will be issued to students who do not meet the above requirements.
