In Singapore’s economy, new trends have surfaced, such as the creation of hybrid jobs, where workers need to have the skills to perform two to three roles at the same time.
Jobs will also be increasingly digitalised, and data analytics and artificial intelligence will also play a bigger role in the future workplace.
To prepare its students for these trends, the Institute of Technical Education will introduce new courses in fields such as data engineering.
These modules can range from an introduction that teaches them how to consume data at an individual level, to specialised modules that teach them to develop software and algorithms.
Starting this year, every ITE student will also have to undertake a compulsory three- to six-month internship.
