On 20 August 2016, the first Education Consultation event was held at OnePeople.SG premises in Toa Payoh.
Aimed to give the students a sense of direction and knowledge of what to expect after graduation, and to also link them with the relevant organisations to consider various academic and/or career options, the event attracted close to 20 attendees, including students from secondary and tertiary education levels.
ISCOS was privileged to have Ms Stephanie Wu Qiong from CompassLoft, Ms Nuraidah Thani from the Youth Employment and Advancement Hub (YEAH), Ms Wendy Leong from Singapore Institute of Retail Studies (SIRS) and Ms Christy Chung from Ngee Ann Polytechnic as key speakers for the event. All panellists shared very useful information on the academic and career opportunities to be explored by the students. The attendees were all ears during the panel discussion and actively participated in the Q & A sessions.
The Education Consultation is an initiative under the Yellow Ribbon Fund-ISCOS Fairy Godparent Programme (FGP).
