Vocational Programme aims to prepare students to attain nationally recognized vocational certification so that they can be gainfully employed upon graduation.
The school offers a two-year ITE Skills Certificate (ISC) programme in Baking, Food Preparation and Housekeeping Operations (Accommodation). In the first year, students go through a minimum of 140 hours of off-the-job-training within the school which are offered by ITE-approved trainers in industrial-standard facilities. The second year involves at least 528 hours of on-the-job-training (OJT) in industrial worksites so that students can learn in authentic settings. Apart from hard skills training, Vocational Education targets to imbue students with skills, knowledge and attitude which will enable them gain and sustain employment, through goal-setting, problem-solving and life-long learning.
The curriculum is holistic with time allocated to Workplace Literacy & Numeracy, Physical Education, Performing Arts and Co-curricular Activities, the latter to instill stronger discipline and teamwork through uniform group activities.
At the end of the two years, students who meet the entry requirements can progress to pursue another two-year ISC in Baking Practices or Hospitality Services. This programme includes 750 hours of off-the-job-training in school and 250 hours of industrial experience (OJT). Skills coverage is broader and deeper, strengthening the students’ confidence as they advance to their post-graduation options.
