The Ministry of Education will be increasing the availability of career guidance to students to help them better handle the fast-changing education landscape and job market.
Each junior college will have one education and career guidance counsellor, while every two secondary schools will have one.
Education Minister Lawrence Wong said that the number of student welfare officers in schools will also be doubled to better support vulnerable students.
The increase in counsellors and welfare officers will be implemented in phases, starting January next year.
MOE said it will also increase the number of middle- and senior-level positions for allied educators in order to nurture various domain expertise and strengthen professional leadership.
