Education and Career Guidance (ECG)

Education and Career Guidance (ECG) is about nurturing student’s self-awareness, equipping them with the knowledge, skills, and values to plan proactively for their future. The school journeys with the students as they work towards their goals and offers up to date information on institutions of higher learning and career options through regular talks, workshops, and career counseling to explore their personalities, interests and work skills. This enables our students to explore viable education options and find meaningful work that aligns to their self-determined goals and aspirations. Once they discover purpose in their work, the motivation for learning comes, which promotes mind-sets with a future orientation.

ECG Key Programmes / Experience

The school designs age-appropriate ECG programmes for students going through the different stages of career awareness, career exploration, and career planning. Foundation to these phases is the development of one’s self-identity. This involves clarification of interests and values, understanding one’s strengths, developing abilities, and formulating life roles in the context of one’s life experiences.
