Innovation and the spirit of creativity are alive and well. Therefore energy should be harnessed to be used for creative purposes.

This was the underlying message of the presenters yesterday when the Council for Technical and Vocational Education and Training (CTVET), and the unit responsible for Secondary School Competency Certificate Programme (SCCP) hosted two fairs at the Arthur Chung Convention Center.

What is the SCCP programme about?


The Secondary Competency Certificate Programme (SCCP) seeks to improve students' attendance, reduce school dropouts, shore-up equity and enhance quality and relevance in the area of technical and vocational education at the Grade 9 and Grade 10 levels.

The competency-based modularized programme is designed with strong emphasis being placed on what students can do in the workplace after completion of training.

The SCCP also serves as an alternative pathway for the acquisition of knowledge, skills and desirable attitudes that will prepare students for further training and/or the world of work.
