Education and Career Guidance
SRJC offers a systematic, rigorous, and research-based Education and Career Guidance (ECG) programme as part of CCE. ECG guides students in making informed education and career choices, and is premised on MOE’s ECG developmental model of career awareness, career exploration and career planning.
At the class level, Civics Tutors facilitate ECG discussions to raise awareness of “Who am I?” (work interest, work skills, work values); the exploration of “Where am I going?” in terms of their preferred occupations and their industries; and “How do I get there?” through exploring the various academic and non-academic requirements that prepare them for work.
At the individual level, students chart their education and career goals, guided by Career Decision Wheel (Amundson & Poehnell, 1996). SRJC has adapted this wheel and applied it to design meaningful experiences for students to systematically explore internal and external factors influencing career aspiration, as well as the world of work.
At JC2, students' exploration of possible education and career pathways are enhanced by two annual Symposia: The SR Career Symposium sees more than 30 professionals and practitioners sharing their expertise and experiences. The SR Higher Education Symposium allows students to explore the higher education landscape and the factors in choosing a programme of study at the university.
At the end of JC1, students can choose to take up the SR Industry Experience, which raises industry awareness with work attachments in various industries ranging from hospitality to law to the arts. SRJC's list of partners include Hilton Singapore, Orchard Hotel, Ho Wong Law Practice LLC, Singapore Academy of Law, The National Gallery and NParks.
ECG enables SRJCians to learn, driven by the imagination of the possibilities for their futures.
