There are sufficient opportunities for graduating polytechnic students who want to work and for those who want to further their studies. Acting Minister for Social and Family Development Chan Chun Sing said this to the first batch graduating Singapore Polytechnic (SP) students this year.
"All of you should have no fear that you would not be able to get a job," he said on Thursday speaking to 340 graduates. He added that success in life depends not just on individual talent and hard work, but on the opportunities that society has given to them.
This year, a total of 5,898 graduates from SP will receive their diplomas over 15 sessions. More than 230 of them are also part of the polytechnic's pioneer batches from digital animation, international business, material science, visual effects and motion graphics, and perfumery and cosmetic science courses.
SP's ceremony marks the start of the polytechnic graduation season, which will take place over the next few weeks.
