A WORD FROM OUR CEO

Welcome to ITE, where we bring your future workplace to our campuses. 

Going from school to embarking on a career is a very big transition. We try to make this transition smoother by designing our curriculum and programmes with you in mind. To prepare you to be ‘Career-Ready, Life-Ready and World-Ready’, we build your future workplace within our campuses.

The authentic learning facilities within our campuses are co-created with our industry partners to mirror their latest technologies and work processes. This is liken to bringing the workplace into our campuses. At the same time, we create opportunities for our students to immerse and work in the companies through internships. Learning takes place at the workplace. In a nutshell, this is what we proudly call the Workplace@Campus, Campus@Workplace learning approach.

At ITE, we embrace technology and real work scenarios in our lessons on a larger scale. Adding to our list of authentic learning facilities, we have a new Digital Delivery Centre, which will equip students with the latest technologies in the built industry, an Intelligent Flexible Manufacturing Hub that incorporates Cyber-physical Systems, cobots and digital twins, and a Cyber Range Lab with an Attack Traffic Generator to simulate cyber-attacks for training purposes.

In Singapore, ITE is recognised for playing a key role in skilling the Singapore workforce. Globally, we are seen by many as a global leader and pace setter for career and technical education. ITE received the Singapore Quality Award with Special Commendation – the pinnacle award for organisational excellence in Singapore – for the second time in 2018.

But we want to do more than just impart technical skills. We want our graduates to be able to hit the ground running, and build a good life for themselves and their families. So, we provide you with opportunities to pick up values and other competencies such as communication, problem-solving, digital literacy, service orientation and a global mindset.

Today, we offer close to 100 courses at three state-of-the-art Colleges. These courses are grouped in career clusters – Applied & Health Sciences, Business & Services, Design & Media, Electronics & Info-Comm Technology, Engineering and Hospitality. Our industry-recognised certificates in these skill areas have helped graduates and adult learners enjoy better job prospects and career progression. 

We have 14 Work-Study Diplomas (WSDip). The WSDip is modelled after Germany’s and Switzerland’s dual-learning approach where learning is at both the companies and on campus. WSDip trainees will work, learn and earn at the same time. The curricula and training are jointly developed and conducted by the companies and ITE.

Whichever skill area and course you choose, we assure you that you will get the skills and competencies you need to secure good employment and make progress in your career and life. We wish you all the best as you discover the ‘joy of doing and learning’ at ITE.
