PROGRAMMES FOR
PRE-TERTIARY YOUTHS

Drawing on our experience working with schools since 2015, TAC offers two key Education & Career Guidance (ECG) programmes designed to introduce pre-tertiary youths (secondary school, JC and IP/IB) to the world of work, encouraging them to begin thinking about their career motivations and what makes a meaningful career. To date, TAC has partnered more than 30 secondary schools and JCs to provide our programmes to their students.

(FOR CAREER EXPLORATION)
DAY X

Short for a day of exploration, Day X is TAC's flagship career exploration programme for pre-tertiary youths. Designed as a one-day workshop, Day X helps youths to develop foundational yet practical perspectives about the world of work as they begin to make sense of what a "career" is about.

  • Type: Career Exploration

  • Duration: ~4-5 hours

  • Ideal use: Cohort-wide "career day" (e.g. for all Sec 2 students in a school)

  • Key features: Hands-on activities to let participants try out and experience what working can be like; exposure to diverse professions (up to 6 different professions)

(FOR CAREER MENTORING)
MISSION X

Short for a mission of exploration, Mission X is TAC's career mentoring programme for pre-tertiary youths. As a sustained programme (not one-off), Mission X is a scaffolded and structured programme to help youths build meaningful relationships with relatable role models who can support them to explore and discover meaningful careers. As Mission X is a resource-intensive programme and we may have limited capacity, we will prioritise youths from more challenging backgrounds and/or schools with a similar focus.  

  • Type: Career Mentoring

  • Duration: ~8-10 hours (best over multiple sessions, e.g. 5 x 2 hours)

  • Ideal use: After-school programme for high-needs youths (e.g. Gear-up)

  • Key features: Relatable role models as mentors, strong mentoring emphasis on increasing motivation and identifying possible post-secondary options; fieldtrips to post-secondary education institutions (e.g. polytechnics and universities)

  • Type: Professional Development

  • Duration: ~3-4 hours

  • Ideal use: Staff development workshops for teachers

  • Key features: Industry sharing by professionals in diverse fields and insights on youth aspirations; hands-on activities to develop practical ECG resources
