ITE opens new in-house training academy for more than 2,600 staff

The Institute of Technical Education (ITE) launched the ITE Academy, a new in-house centre to train more than 2,600 staff across the three colleges.

Housed at the ITE headquarters and College Central at Ang Mo Kio, the centre, with a capacity of 340 people, has 10 training rooms, two computer labs and a Harvard-style lecture room, among other facilities.

The Academy aims to strengthen the institution's expertise in vocational and technical education, and enhance staff training in four areas - in leadership, pedagogy, professional and executive development and organisational sharing.

The centre which is already in use since January, is expected to draw 2,688 staff this year.
