What are Applied Learning Modules (ApLMs)?
Applied Learning Modules (ApLMs) were introduced by the Ministry of Education (MOE) to enrich the secondary school curriculum with more applied learning options. Taught by polytechnic staff over a span of three days, ApLMs are modules or subjects in applied areas, such as entrepreneurship, news reporting, market research and human resource.
Students will be given the opportunity to apply the knowledge they learn during the programme to practical real-life scenarios, and discover their individual strengths and interests.
Why should I sign up my students for ApLMs?
Your students will get to:
- Experience polytechnic life in advance – our ApLMs are conducted in the same way as all our other regular diploma courses
- Acquire new skills and knowledge not taught in secondary schools
- Discover and explore their passions and interests beforehand, enabling them to make informed decisions about education and career plans after graduation
- Enhance their Holistic Development Profile which will give them an edge over their peers when applying for diploma courses under the Polytechnic Early Admission Exercise (EAE) and Direct Admission Exercise (DAE)

What is the cost?
Students will need to pay $25 per ApLM, which can be paid from their Edusave Accounts. MOE will subsidise the remaining course fees – up to $225 for every student per module – subject to students meeting minimum attendance of 2 out of 3 days.
