Industrial Attachment Programme
Elements of Business Skills (EBS) was introduced to N(T) students as an elective subject in 2008. It aims to equip students with basic knowledge, skills and values relevant for the service industries, namely, retail, hospitality and tourism. The teaching approach emphasised is on applied hands-on learning in the real world. The EBS IEP is a partnership initiative between Serangoon Garden Secondary School and various companies to provide authentic learning opportunities for EBS students to gain knowledge, skills and values beyond the classroom.
The main objective of the programme is to give our students the chance to get a real-life experience of how companies in various industries, such as food & beverage, service and labour, are run. The students would be able to apply the skills learnt in the classroom to their work if they take up jobs in these industries in the future. They would also get the opportunity to learn life skills at the workplace such as punctuality, respect for supervisors and colleagues, perseverance to complete the task at hand, and taking responsibility for their actions and decisions.
