Financial Literacy Collaboration with partners

Partnership - LEAP
Leadership: Essential Attributes & Practice (LEAP)

TPsmart programme is a LEAP 2 Module for TP students. This subject focuses on leading others and enhancing team effectiveness. Students learnt to adopt a Win-Win approach when making decisions, develop empathic listening skills, bring out the positive team synergy and understand how to manage one’s finances, which affects interpersonal relationships.

LEAP is Temasek Polytechnic’s 3-year leadership and character development programme for all TP students. Since its inception in 1997, the LEAP programme uses leadership principles as the framework to enable TP students to develop leadership skills that embrace values as the core foundation for their credibility and influence.

Service, Enrichment, Achievement and Leadership (SEAL)

TP students earn SEALS points when leading and facilitating financial literacy workshops for secondary schools.

SEAL points can be added to the student's university application to display leadership qualities and holistic capabilities. Each year the total points scored will be recorded in the SEAL system. The points will culminate into a final year grade at the end of three years of CCA involvement.
