Career Guidance

Career guidance and planning for gifted and talented youth is vital given their multiple potential. Career guidance in RGS is embedded in the co-curriculum programme and seeks to provide students with value-based guidance which emphasises choosing a career that fulfils one's gifts aligned to personal values.

The Career Guidance programme provides the following

  • Engage students in planning and setting goals for school work and career ambitions
  • Provide information on the required qualifications and desirable competencies of various occupations across industries
  • Provide information on courses of studies in both local and overseas institutions of higher learning
  • Present a variety of career choices through talks at the annual Career Fair Day
  • Provide opportunities for job shadowing (internship or mentorship) in various industries through the Work Experience Programme (WEP)
  • Provide information about the evolving nature of work in the present and near future

Work Experience Programme

Work Experience Programme (WEP) is an opportunity for Year 3 and 4 students to connect with or "shadow" a business professional (mentor) who has specific knowledge about an occupation or career. Students observe responsibilities and tasks associated with the mentor's career and have the opportunity to ask questions about the knowledge, skills, and level of education required for the job. While the purpose of WEP is to gather career related information and a chance for students to expand their networking contacts, it also allows the girls to become aware of trends in the field, and see the working world for itself. Some features of the programme

  • Conducted during the June and December school holidays for a duration of 1 to 4 weeks
  • Developing on-the-job skills and competencies for effective and competitive workforce performance.
  • Upon satisfactory completion of WEP and evaluation of WEP supervisor, students will be eligible for a certificate of participation upon graduation at Year 4
