Earn-Learn Diploma Of SP In Port Management And Operations


Port Management

Under the ‘National Skills Future’ initiative, a one-year diploma course in port management and operations will be developed by PSA International (PSA) and Singapore Polytechnic (SP) which will be an  earn-and-learn programme (ELP).  This is the first of its kind specifically designed for the Singapore port industry.  The ELP will be launched in June, 2016.

Students will benefit from full-time employment, a structured learning framework in the disciplines of engineering, information technology and maritime business and career advancement pathways.  The co-operative venture will equip future port professionals with work-ready knowledge, industry-relevant competencies and skills through comprehensive, hands-on training.  It would also enhance Singapore’s status as a global hub port with the expansion of Pasir Panjang Terminals and eventually the development of Tuas megaport.

The ELP collaboration is a key component of a five-year memorandum of understanding (MOU) signed recently by PSA and SP.

Established in 1954, SP has 10 schools that offer 48 full-time diploma courses for close to 16,000 students. SP adopts a proven creative teaching and learning framework and offers students a holistic, authentic and industry-relevant curriculum, innovative and vibrant learning spaces and enriching overseas programmes.
