The Ministry of Education created the Teacher Work Attachment Plus programme last year with the aim of getting teachers to learn new skill sets, bring fresh perspectives to the classrooms, create space for teachers’ personal growth, and enable them to better connect theory with practice.
This year, more than half of the 150 teachers sent out on attachments to sectors such as manufacturing and environment since January this year have completed their stints.
MOE said about 80 teachers have completed their stints, which last between two and four weeks.
Current attachment opportunities for teachers range from sectors such as aerospace and programming to sustainability and data analytics.
