APSN Delta Senior School

About Us

APSN Delta Senior School (DSS) is an in-house Approved Training Organisation (ATO) with SkillsFuture Singapore (SSG) since 2008, an Approved Test Centre (ATC) endorsed by International Computer Driving License (ICDL) since Sep 2011 and WPLN Test Centre endorsed by British Council since Feb 2020. Our students are equipped with the relevant skills, knowledge and attributes through Workforce Skills Qualifications (WSQ) training which helps to prepare them for work readiness and open employment. The WSQ is a national credential system that trains, develops, assesses and certifies skills and competencies for the workforce. As a continuing education and training (CET) system, WSQ supports the SkillsFuture movement to:

  • Promote recognition of skills and competencies to facilitate progression, mastery and mobility
  • Promote holistic development of the workforce through technical and generic skills and competencies;
  • Support economic development by professionalising skills and competencies to drive industry transformation, productivity and innovation efforts and
  • Encourage lifelong learning.

Training programmes developed under the WSQ system are based on skills and competencies validated by employers, unions and professional bodies. The WSQ programmes are funded and quality-assured by SkillsFuture Singapore (SSG), which awards the WSQ certifications.

Every student who qualifies for the certification track at APSN DSS will have the opportunity to attempt and obtain the Statements of Attainment (SOA) for all the modules offered in one of the following four WSQ vocational training programmes provided at APSN DSS:

  • Hotel and Accommodation Services
  • Food & Beverage
  • Retail Operations
  • Horticulture

Students are assigned to one of the four vocational training programmes based on a rigorous profiling process conducted by staff (trainers, psychologists, social workers and occupational therapists) with the aim of preparing them for a career in the industry that suits their strengths and skills.

APSN DSS has put in place the following framework of progressive periods of work attachment to facilitate students’ transition from school to work. The maximum age for students to complete the WSQ programme is 21 years old.

  • Year 1 & 2 – School-based Vocational Training
  • Year 3 to 5 – 150 Hours of On-Site Training (OST) and after OST, students will be mapped according to their abilities to the Work Experience Programme (WEP) or Customised Work Experience Programme (CWEP)

However, students who require a longer runway to strengthen their readiness for the workplace are placed in the LEAD programme. The LEAD Programme provides a progressive competency-based curriculum that covers various aspects of students’ development. This includes life-skills
development through vocational training and other key learning areas like Numeracy and Literacy to develop students to be competent in terms of knowledge, skills and character. The focus of the LEAD Programme is shown below:

Learning Areas:

  • Literacy
  • Numeracy
  • Fitness and Health (includes community-based training)
  • Personal Management
  • Work Skills Training
  • Computer Skills Training
  • LIFE curriculum
  • Mobility Training/ Adapted Self-Defence
  • Fundamental Skills Training/ Work Skills Levelling Training

APSN DSS also provides various platforms for students to be socially responsible citizens who can contribute to their families and community. There are multiple opportunities within the curriculum for students to apply and showcase their strengths, abilities, talents and gifts.
