A Rise in Employment Rate and Salary for Private School Graduates!

TMC Academy is excited to share the great news that 1 in 2 private education institution (PEI) graduates found full-time permanent employment within 6 months of graduation, according to the annual PEI Graduate Employment Survey 2017/18 results released yesterday (10 April 2019) by the Committee for Private Education (CPE).

The survey was done with 10,176 graduates who had completed their full-time external degree programmes in PEIs between May 2017 and April 2018. TMC Academy was one of the 27 PEIs that participated in the survey.

On top of the rise in full-time employment rate, survey results show that there is an increase in median gross monthly salary – from S$2,550 (2017) to S$2,650 (2018).

Preparing our Graduates to be Career-Ready

As a pioneer in the setup of Industry Advisory Boards, TMC Academy acknowledged the importance of imparting not only knowledge, but practical skills that students can put to use in their future career. This includes soft skills like interpersonal, time management and leadership skills, which are developed through the participation in external events and activities organised by our industry partners.
