Students of Crest Secondary School and Spectra Secondary School will soon have the opportunity to take on more skill-based subjects.
As part of a new qualification called the Institute of Technical Education (ITE) Skills Subject Certificate (ISSC), students can take two of five new skills subjects.
The Ministry of Education projects that about 300 to 400 students per cohort will take the new ISSC subjects, which include mechanical design and automation, culinary and restaurant operations, retail and e-commerce, Internet of Things applications, and mobile Web applications.
The new certification aims to provide students with a more broad-based curriculum that widens exposure to different industry growth areas.
