Work-Study Post-Diploma (Specialist Diploma in Hospitality Business Management)
School of Hospitality
My experience as a participating student of the SkillsFuture Work-Study Programme (WSP) has been a fulfilling and thrilling one. However, during the learning process, I felt like I was on a roller coaster ride, where I faced ups and down at both work and school. Despite difficulties encountered, I am glad that the course has given me the exposure which I needed and it has nurtured me to be a disciplined and responsible individual.
Having to juggle both studies and work at the same time can be rather stressful and tough. However, I believe this was where my time management skills became useful in helping me cope with the workload and achieve work-life balance. I had to make sacrifices such as giving up my sleeping time and my social life. But these sacrifices and hard work were worth it. What I have received in return was a greater version of myself in terms of interpersonal skills, good grades, industry experience, and certification.
These elements are very important in the future regardless of whether you are joining the workforce or pursuing further studies. It is a skillset that we have to accumulate in order to stay relevant in this fast-paced and competitive society.

Specialist Diploma in Career Counselling,
School of Management and Communication
When I first signed up for the 6-month Specialist Diploma in Career Counselling (SDCC), I was apprehensive, yet excited. On one hand, it could be a suitable career transition for when I retire in the coming years and on the other hand, I was also concerned if I could juggle between work, coursework and of course, the exams.
Looking back, I am glad to have made that move and pursued this course! All the time poured into doing research and managing my time well in order to meet deadlines were all worth it, as I am now better-equipped to commence my journey as a career coach.
I jumped in almost immediately after completing the specialist diploma in July 2020, and adapted quite quickly thanks to what I have learnt. Aside from my full-time career in SCDF as a Senior Assistant Director in the Human Resource Department, I have the privilege of being part of the Public Service Career Coach Network and provide career services to fellow public officers.
The entire journey, from taking up the course to conducting career coaching, has been an enriching and fulfilling adventure. Through engaging people and building rapport, they became willing to share their experiences and thoughts with me, allowing me to apply the skills acquired from the course to guide them in charting their own career development pathways.
This opportunity has allowed me to realise my career interest and goal as I prepare myself for the next phase of my career.

Diploma in Engineering (Electrical and Electronics),
School of Engineering
The first step towards something new is often the hardest. However, it is also the most rewarding when you master a new skill. Since the start of our nation’s SkillsFuture initiative, I have been motivated to move out of my comfort zone to acquire new skillset and knowledge.
It was a difficult decision but I have definitely made the right choice to join RP’s Part-Time Diploma in Engineering (Electrical and Electronics).
I strongly believe that lifelong learning is the best way to exercise the mind, self-reflect and stay young. By seizing every opportunity to expand our knowledge and by upskilling ourselves, we will be ready to face technology disruptions and other challenges. Steve Jobs shared wisely: “Learn continually – there's always "one more thing" to learn!” Award-winning author Brian Herbert penned the following about learning, “The capacity to learn is a gift; the ability to learn is a skill; the willingness to learn is a choice”.
I am blessed and grateful to have met many knowledgeable and helpful lecturers such as Mr Rajendran, Mr Vincent Tey, Mr Tony Tan, and Mr Kelvin Loo. They have always been generous with their time, helping and enlightening us, which is very valuable to part-time students.
I am proud to graduate from RP with a wealth of knowledge. I am future-ready!
