Student Consortium

Student Consortium leads in the review and enhancement of existing programmes and in development of new programmes in the face of the changing local and educational landscape and the need for a responsive, relevant and an academically rigorous programme to prepare our student teachers to meet the demands of the 21st century classroom.

Another key function of the unit is to enthuse, encourage and facilitate the holistic development of our student teachers. The unit also provides counselling support and oversees the growth and development of student clubs and leads in the planning, development and management of the compulsory service learning programme, the Group Endeavours in Service Learning (GESL) and the Meranti Project, which aims to help student teachers to build better self-awareness and deeper commitment towards the teaching profession.

Student Consortium is led by Associate Dean for Programme & Student Development, A/P Chow Jia Yi, together with Dr Tan Soo Yin, Assistant Dean for Student Development & Counselling. The three programme Assistant Deans (PGDE, Diploma and Degree) are also involved in aspects of programme development that impact their particular programmes. The unit is also supported by two Managers, Mrs Jessica Tan-Wong (Senior Manager/Student Development) and Ms Nurfilzah (Manager/Student Life) and their teams.
