Education and Career Guidance (ECG)


The Education and Career Guidance programme at CHIJ Katong Convent centres on exposure and experience in order to link the secondary school experience with post-secondary school experiences as well as the world of work. It comprises:

  • ECG lessons conducted during curriculum time
  • visits to selected post-secondary educational institutions e.g. polytechnics, ITEs
  • talks by representatives from these institutions
  • talks by representatives from work sectors (usually parents or alumni)
  • work attachment opportunities e.g. at F & B establishments, KK Hospital, Zoo
  • Advanced Elective Modules (AEMs) at the polytechnics, ITE Modules
  • ECG Fair in school at the end of Term 1

Some activities are planned for a whole level and some are voluntar y. Students will be informed of available opportunities in due course.

Over the 2-year lower secondary and 2-year upper secondary segments of schooling, each student will receive bite-sized ECG information which will progressively inform them about the different pathways open to them and prepare them to make sound decisions about their future.

For Students

Here at CHIJ Katong Convent, we aim to give you the best possible head-start to your personal development, post-secondary & future career preparation.  We endeavour to ensure that your ECG experience will enable you to make informed decisions about your combination of subjects as you move from lower to upper secondary, and available post-secondary options.

For Parents

Here at CHIJ Katong Convent, we aim to give your daughter the best possible head-start to her personal development, post-secondary & and career preparation.  We ensure that her combination of subjects enables her to feed onto a wide range of post-secondary options that suits her best.
