Welcome to an exciting learning journey with ITE.
We are a post-secondary institution providing career and technical education for youths and adult learners. We celebrated our 25th Anniversary in 2017. Among the many achievements in the last 25 years, we take pride in our holistic and unique approach to learning that is ‘Hands-on, Minds-on and Hearts-on'.
Our programmes and curriculum are designed to impart relevant industry skills, values and life skills, such as communication, decision-making, digital analytics and literacy, and a global mindset, to prepare our graduates to be ‘Career-Ready, Life-Ready and World-Ready’. We offer close to one hundred courses at our three state-of-the-art Colleges. The courses are grouped in career clusters closely aligned with industry needs – Applied & Health Sciences, Business & Services, Design & Media, Electronics & Info-Comm Technology, Engineering and Hospitality.
You may wonder : How would learning and life be like at ITE?
Well, learning in ITE is innovative and fun. We have recreated your future workplace within our campuses. Just look at the many interesting and authentic learning facilities, which we have set up with industry partners. Among them, we have a Paramedic Simulation Lab equipped with an ambulance simulator capable of replicating different vehicular motions; an Aerospace Hub with a hangar housing real aircraft, including a Boeing 737; a sound-proof Soundstage for theatrical film-making and television drama production; and Amber West and Delicatessen – a student-run restaurant and café respectively – where you can learn to prepare exquisite Asian and fine-dining Western dishes, and European-styled patisserie.
And we bring learning to actual workplace, by exposing all our students to internships in companies, which last between three and six months. You will be able to experience work life in industry and apply your skills in real-work situations. The experience will be invaluable in preparing you for your transition to work, and help you in your future career choices.
Learning is not just about acquisition of industry-relevant skills. This is why we also offer many rich and diverse learning experiences beyond the classroom to maximise your talents and potential. These include Leadership Programmes; the Global Education Programme for overseas attachments and exchanges; performing arts, sports and recreational activities; service learning and environmental programmes; and educational and career guidance programmes. Our experienced and caring lecturers will partner you in your learning journey. Even after you graduate, we offer a varied range of continuing education programmes to help you update, upgrade and deepen your skills. From 2018, we will offer new Work-Learn Technical Diploma Programmes with industry.
You have made the right choice. Through our practice-oriented programmes, modern and innovative facilities, as well as a nurturing environment, we will bring out the best in each and every one of our students.
We wish you the best in your enriching journey of learning and discovery at ITE.
With warm regards
