Education And Career Guidance
Education and Career Guidance (ECG)
Education and Career Guidance equips students with the necessary knowledge, skills and values to support decision-making throughout the various stages of their education. This will provide them with the means to effect a successful transition towards post-secondary education and career options, and facilitate their learning and skills development throughout their lives. It is an important step to ensure that our students remain competitive in the global economy, and lead productive and meaningful lives.
The objectives of the PRCS ECG programme are as follow:1. Enable the students to explore viable education and career options through the provision of accurate and comprehensive information.
Students will be guided to use the MySkillsFuture portal to support their exploration of post-secondary education and career options. More information on the online portal can be obtained here.
Students can also look forward to an annual ECG carnival that is organised by the school, where they will have access to information on the various post-secondary education and career options. Upper Secondary students will be given opportunities to participate in organised visits to various post-secondary education institutions and the Lifelong Learning Exploration Centre to further buttress their consideration for future career options.
Secondary Two students will undergo preparatory briefings on subject combination matters at the beginning of the year. They will also be given opportunities to visit MOE-organised ECG Fairs at appropriate junctures throughout the school year.2. Nurture the student’s self-awareness, self-directedness and life skills for continuous learning and training.
The school puts in place structures and processes to help students develop these competencies. At the start of each year, students set goals for themselves, which are aligned to the school’s desired student learning outcomes (DSLOs). These are reviewed after each semester under the guidance of their home-tutors. School structures such as the reading and self-study periods also inculcate self-motivation in continual and independent learning.
The school also conducts workshops for the graduating students on skills related to areas on interview, resume-writing and grooming.3. Inculcate an appreciation for the value of all occupations and how they contribute to the well-functioning of society.
The school invites guest speakers from a wide range of occupations to share their experiences with the students during the ECG carnival, assembly programme and the annual Speech and Prize-Giving Day. When possible, information on the latest industry trends and labour market outlook will be disseminated to students through the ECG lessons.4. Equip our students with skills and means to positively engage their parents and other career influencers.
For many of the key programmes stated above, opportunities are provided to allow students to engage their parents. The DSLO goals are reviewed and shared with parents during Parents-Teacher Meetings (PTM). Parents are invited to attend the Subject Combination briefings with their child in the Secondary two cohort. Students are also encouraged to share with their parents about their learning experiences during ECG lessons.
