The HRDC is mandated to establish linkages between the education, the training system and the work place to take appropriate measures to reduce mismatch between demand and supply of human resource.
It is in this context that the HRDC had launched the lower six placement programme in 2007. This project has undoubtedly helped students to boost their self-confidence, improve their communication skills and make them aware of the different workplace culture and practices.
With a view to complement the lower six placement project, the HRDC has now initiated the Career3 project which is a series of talks targeted to secondary level students comprising 3 main components namely Think Career, Developing Employability skills and CV writing and Interviewing techniques.
