Parents Engagement 2014 [Industry Visit]: Discover Your Child's Future in Infocomm

Dear Parents 

Infocomm is a critical enabler in many key economic sectors such as banking, hospitality and healthcare. How to translate your child's interest and aptitude in technology into a leading edge career in the infocomm field? What are the student talent management programmes initiated by the government and industry players that your child can tap on?
In 2012 and 2013, SST collaborated with IDA to run the "Discover Your Child's Future in Infocomm" programme for parents and we received positive feedback from parents.
In conjunction with the Digital Citizenship Week, SST is please to once again collaborate with IDA to bring the programme to you to look into the above. In this half-a-day workshop, IDA will present to you an update on the current infocomm landscape in Singapore, and the career possibilities for your child in this field. This is followed by a visit to one of IDA's industry partners, IBM, where you would have the opportunity to interact and learn what IT professionals in IBM do.
