Education Trust Fund / Temasek Cares – Academic and Life Skills Coaching
Helping Malay/Muslim ITE students to succeed in their studies at ITE
Partner: Yayasan MENDAKI
With the support of Temasek Cares, Yayasan MENDAKI has started a mentoring programme to help equip Malay/Muslim students with academic and life skills. Known as the Education Trust Fund / Temasek Cares – Academic and Life Skills Coaching, the programme targets to serve 60 students from the three colleges of the Institute of Technical Education (ITE).
The aim of the mentorship programme is to enable more Malay/Muslim students to do well in their studies and obtain their National ITE Certificate (NITEC). Through a series of focus group discussions, MENDAKI discovered that Malay/Muslim students in ITE need more motivational and academic support. The mentorship programme was established to meet this need.
Under the programme, one trained coach will be provided for every two students so that each student receives optimal attention. In addition to providing academic support, the coach would also serve as role model, friend, and above all, a mentor.
