A McKinsey report on Education to Employment, highlighted a paradox of two global crises – high youth unemployment rate and shortage of workforce with critical job skills (Ref 1). In 2013, the global youth unemployment rate was 12.6% – in real numbers, this meant 73.4 million young people were not gainfully employed. This rate is expected to increase to 12.8% in 2018. At the same time, the McKinsey report revealed that 58% of employers surveyed thought entry-level new hires did not have the necessary skills they needed. Such dilemmas are raising serious concerns for many governments. The Institute of Technical Education(ITE), is the leading education and training school for vocational skills in Singapore. Every year ITE educates and trains more than 25,000 students across 3 colleges in areas such as Aerospace and Marine Technology, Engineering Design and Manufacturing Technology, Hospitality Services, Service Innovation, and more.
