Education and Career Guidance (ECG)


Our Goal

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. 

Programme Overview


  •      ECG lessons conducted during curriculum time 
  •      Visits to selected post-secondary educational institutions e.g. polytechnics, ITEs 
  •      Talks by representatives from these institutions 
  •      Work attachment opportunities 
  •      Advanced Elective Modules (AEMs) at the polytechnics, ITE Modules 
  •      ECG Fair in school at the end of Term 1 
  •      Career Seminar for graduating cohort

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.

The Work Attachment Programme enhances students' awareness of themselves and the world of work, instils good work attitudes and values, and creates a greater awareness between their career interests and strengths. Participating organisations work closely with the school to craft a meaningful work experience for the students during the week-long attachment, which includes the working hours and the type of work given to the students. In 2019, the students were attached to Orchard Hotel, Pat's School House, Tan Tock Seng Hospital and Nook and Cranny.


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.
