ITE Values


What are the Desired Outcomes of ITE Education?

The Desired Outcomes of an ITE Education are attributes that ITE and its three Colleges set out to inculcate in our students upon completion of their post-secondary technical training. These outcomes define the common purpose for our lecturers, drive our policies and programmes, and help us to determine how well our VTE system is functioning.

The unique 'Hands-on, Minds-on and Hearts-on' ITE education will equip students with the latest technical skills and knowledge to contribute effectively in the workplace and develop them as confident graduates responsible to their family, community, and nation; possessing sound values such as integrity, respect for others, and civic-mindedness.
