Key Milestones in ITE's Transformation

The Institute of Technical Education (ITE) was established as a post-secondary institution, under the Ministry of Education (MOE), to take over the functions of the Vocational and Industrial Training Board (VITB) in April 1992.

Since then, ITE has transformed itself to become the principal provider of Career and Technical Education in Singapore.  We continue to strive for excellence and became the first Education Institution to win the Singapore Quality Award (SQA) in 2005 and the SQA (with Special Commendation) (SQA SC) in 2011. In 2017, we celebrated our 25-year journey of ‘Inspiration, Transformation and Excellence’ and introduced Work-Study Diploma (formerly known as Work-Learn Technical Diploma) as another progression pathway for our graduates.

In 2018, we became one of only two Public Agencies to receive the SQA SC for a second time.
