The Integrated Work Study Programme (IWSP) is an integral and compulsory applied learning component, which provides students with the opportunity to integrate what they have learnt in the classroom with what is practised in the real world, and vice versa. It comprises two integrative parts: i) work and ii) study. The work component refers to a work attachment that students undergo in various organisations, whereas the study component refers to the integration of knowledge and practice, as well as the development and the application of innovation skills. The study component also includes the ongoing development of career skills. The IWSP is a key learning platform that contributes to the inculcation of the SIT-DNA in every student.
The IWSP consists of 2 parts:
1) IWSP (Career Skills)
2) IWSP (Work Attachment)
IWSP (Career Skills) is a prerequisite requirement for IWSP (Work Attachment). Students must complete and pass IWSP (Career Skills) before they are allowed to embark on IWSP application for the work attachment.
IWSP (Career Skills)
Students are required to complete a set of five blended “Career Readiness Micro-Modules”. They serve to impart complementary skills to prepare students in navigating the IWSP application and the workplace - to have a growth mindset and be self-directed in their career development. The micro-modules include: Zoom workshops, e-learning materials and assessment tasks that students are required to complete.
