How many student development tracks must a student get involved in during their course of training in ITE College East?
Each student must register and actively participate in at least one CCA, under one of the eight tracks, during their course of training. We also strongly encourage students to make full use of the developmental opportunities by participating in the variety of enrichment programmes offered through any of the other 8 tracks. Enrichment programmes will also score you participation marks that can be accumulated for translation into GPA Advantage Points.
When and how can students apply for the development programmes?
CCAs: Students may apply for CCAs during the orientation week (in January and April). CCA booths will be set up to help students gain a better understanding of the demands and commitment. Alternatively you can also sign-up online through the ITE Student Portal (iStudent).
Enrichment Programmes: Students can apply for the programme of their choice online through the ITE Student Portal (iStudent) or by visiting the Student Development Centre where a team of officers will be at hand to guide and advise you on the various programmes available.
If students miss the application period during the orientation week, where and how can they apply?
You can enrol in any of the programmes even if you miss the application period during the orientation week, via the ITE Student Portal, as long as there are vacancies.
How are new programmes announced from time to time?
Announcements on new programmes and activities are posted regularly on the ITE College East website, broadcast over the in-campus TVs and displayed on the notice boards that are located around the campus.
