3NT Elective Module 1
The 3NT Elective Modules (EM) aimed at providing a holistic learning experience for the Normal Technical (NT) students by exposing them to various post-secondary education courses as well as raise their awareness of the demands of careers in various industries like Food &Beverage, Beauty & Health as well as ICT.
This is in line with the school’s mission to ‘Shape Character, Ignite Passion and Promote Innovation,’ to prepare our students to become citizens of the future.

Learning journeys were also part of the learning experience to allow them to see real life application of what they have learnt. For students who had signed up for the Beauty Therapy module, they were treated to a trip to the Mirror D'International Hair and Beauty Training Centre to see for themselves what career opportunities were available if they chose to specialise in the field.
