Don’t choose it

No work life balance. Mid management biases. Not compassionate towards staff. Task oriented. Can’t find anything good there which has happened. Those with substance will not stay there Long as too many old school learners there. Not able to teach, you can work there. If you speak up , you will not be liked. No democracy

Pros

Nil

Cons

Many

Shift up or ship out

9 years since I left ITE as a student, the rapid changes in the world outside are slowly rendering the national education system in Singapore of which ITE is a part of, obsolete and irrelevant at most levels. Stop making students chase grades on a piece of paper and micromanaging their life. If you truly care about their future, don't pull wool over their eyes about how the job market is all roses and good jobs are guaranteed when so many high paying jobs are given away to foreigners by the government and employers addicted to cheap foreign labor.

Pros

Slow pace of life for you to decide what you wanna do after leaving ITE

Cons

Long history of students involved with bad company, societal bias against ITE graduates

IT system is a dinosaour

The IT DD and is sleeping and doing anything about the slowness in the network for the whole ITE or the donkey old systems like still using Lotus Notes apps in this era. Talk about IoT and new technologies for donkey years but nothing done year after year.

Pros

Stay and have pop corn and watch politics because all are too free and nothing to do.

Cons

Everyday too many korean dramas. Do not get involve.

ITE is a very people oriented organisation

My main job function is to impart knowledge and skills in mechanical engineering to young school leavers. This is the part I enjoy most in my job. The job also requires me to advise my students on their performance and career paths. I am able to bond with my students and find fulfillment in my work. ITE is a very people-oriented organisation and it takes care of its employees well.

Pros

Job security

Cons

Key performance indicators

Best job in Town

I have been with ITE since 2005 and its my first job. I must say that i became a true matured working adult at this place. A great working environment with a great team of colleagues. A normal day starts with mass workout, variety of exercises and games. Work culture has been always on a positive note. Hardest part of job is managing the expectations of students. Most enjoyable part is just waking up to get to another day at work.

Pros

Nice people

Cons

Long hours on certain days

good salary for long hours

very enriching job, and meaningful because of the students that we worked with. However the demands of the management may be too ambitious sometimes. Great thing is that we have to undergo and complete a compulsory 100hours of learning every year, so that keeps the employees well informed of new technology.

Pros

free courses

Cons

ambitious targets, long hours

Looking forwarded to school

A typical day consist of lesson planning and delivery from 0-800-1700hrs. Theory and practical lesson covers about 24-30 hours weekly, the rest of the working hours, covers extra- ciriculum, adminsitrative work, marking, field trips and exchange program for students. Best part of the job is seeing improvement and motivated students. I lack no opportinuty to be creative with lesson to keep students interested. Most challanging part of work is dealing with students who are in denial. Some parents are becoming difficult to handle. Management expecting impossible often, thus feeling suffocated in the authoritarian management. Work life balanced. Little over-time is expected and work load manageable.

Pros

Job satisfaction

Cons

Too many "red tapes" on daily work system.

Conducive environment to work in

Teaching is enriching but administratively demanding. Takes up much time in handling students' issues which an administrator can handle. Involve in students; projects, local CCAs and overseas trips

Challenging industry to meet the industry demand

Great exposure to the healthcare industry and understand the challenges faced working in national headquarter. A very different culture from my last job, enjoyed working with younger generation. Aware of the great shortage of nurses and allied health professionals globally and the challenges of making these jobs appealing to the young.

Nice colleagues

It is a joy to teach the students. The teaching hour is about 20 to 22 teaching hours. There are a lot of administrative work but manageable.

Fun workmates that make time goes fast.

Come to work have a bread or coffee. Ask my co worker how is their evening. Replenish office stocks like photocopy paper, ink catridge, stamps, labels. Ask my supervisor if there are any pending jobs that I can help. I learned to communicate with clients via emailing and on the phone. Learn how to set up a successfull event. Most tiring is during event day when we admin crew must set up. Run up and down . Fetch heavy boxes that has water bottle and event materials. But overall I learnt a lot. How to set an event. How to manage unhappy participants. How to work under pressure. How to communicate well and how to use office items.

Pros

A lot of free food.

Cons

Long hours and low pay.

Social calling

This job requires passion, compassion, patience in dealing with students. 70% of the time and energy is spent on student management, 20% of the time on admin tasks and 10% on actual teaching. ITE offers great work life balance and job security, however the culture is characterised by red tapes and bureaucracy. The greatest satisfaction of the job is to see the students achieve small successes in gaining experience, skills and confidence to help them build a better future.
