SINGAPORE: GCE ’N’ and ’O’ level school leavers can look forward to over 2,300 scholarships and awards, and three new courses offered by the Institute of Technical Education (ITE) next year.

In a news release, ITE said it is collaborating with leading industry and government agencies to offer the scholarships and awards.

Its partners include the Singapore Economic Development Board (EDB), which is providing sponsorship to more than 100 students pursuing courses in precision engineering.

EDB’s National Precision Engineering Study Award (NPESA) and the National Precision Engineering Scholarship (NPES) will cover school fees and monthly allowances, and also provide opportunities for a fully paid overseas attachment.

Corporate partners that ITE is working with include Rolls—Royce Singapore, which will award five scholarships per year to ITE students in the National Institute of Technical Education Certificate (Nitec) in Aerospace Technology course.

This scholarship comprises sponsorship of school fees, monthly allowances, and employment with Rolls—Royce Singapore on graduation.

Among the new courses to be offered next year is Nitec in Floristry —— the first of its kind to be offered at a learning institution in Singapore.

The other new courses starting January 2013 are Nitec in Electronics (Broadband Technology & Services) and Nitec in Fashion Apparel Production & Design.

These new courses are among the 59 Nitec, 43 Higher Nitec and 25 traineeship courses offered by ITE for post—secondary education and training in 2013.

ITE said application for its full—time courses will be open from Monday, 17 December 2012 (from 2:30 pm) to Thursday, 20 December 2012 (5 pm).

Secondary school leavers who have taken the GCE ’N’ level examinations in 2012 can submit their applications for full—time Nitec courses at the ITE website: www.ite.edu.sg.
