Education and Career Guidance

What is ECG?

Education and Career Guidance (ECG) is about equipping students with the necessary knowledge, skills and values to make informed decisions at each key education stage for the successful transition from school to further education or work, and hence to manage their career pathways and lifelong learning throughout their lives. Through ECG, social-emotional competencies and qualities of proactivity, adaptability and resilience are developed to prepare students for the 21st Century.

MySkillsFuture Portal (www.myskillsfuture.sg/secondary)
MySkillsFuture Portal is a one-stop portal that empowers you to embark on a journey of self-discovery and make informed education and career choices.  It also aims to help students discover their identity through awareness, exploration and planning.


Quality ECG Counselling

ECG Counsellors are deployed to MOE Secondary and Pre-University Schools, and Post-Secondary Education Institutions (PSEI) started since mid-2015.

At PHS, our ECG Counsellor, Mr Christopher Tan guides students to make considered decisions based on their interests and strengths so they can contribute meaningfully to society through their future professions. In addition to providing individual and group counselling to students, she organises activities for a holistic Education and Career Guidance (ECG) experience.

If you have ECG related concerns and wish to meet with Mr Tan, he will be available in school every Thursday (Level 2, ECG room) or email him at ecgcounselling2016@gmail.com to make an appointment.
