SINGAPORE: Close to 450 National Institute of Education (NIE) students graduated with their teaching qualifications on Friday (Jan 16).

They are the first batch of graduates this year, with some receiving their Postgraduate Diploma in Education - a programme that prepares university-degree holders to become school teachers.

Education Minister Heng Swee Keat, who attended the graduation ceremony, also presented awards to graduates with outstanding academic achievements.

He also advised the graduates to keep honing their craft as teachers, not only for the benefit of their students, but also in the spirit of lifelong learning: "On a day-to-day basis, it means that you stay inventive, you weave different areas of knowledge into your lessons, you stay alert to your students' social-emotional developments, and you help your students discover how their lessons apply to the real world."
