Allied Educators work with teachers to nurture and develop every child in school by raising the quality of interaction with every child. They will support the teachers in the application of innovative pedagogies to instruct and interact with each pupil. They will also facilitate discussion groups as well as engage the pupils in their project work. Teachers will also involve allied educators in the delivery of enriching programmes and activities outside the classroom. The allied educators will also build rapport with the pupils to help them improve their self-confidence, self-esteem and sense of independence.
The 3 types of allied educators are as follows:
- School Counsellor who provide social and emotional support to students;
- AED (Learning and Behavioural Support) who guide the learning of students with special educational needs; and
- AED (Teaching and Learning) who provide teaching and learning support and assist with pastoral care and Co-curricular Programmes.
Allied Educators are key members of our school team, and together with our education officers and executive and administrative staff, we strive to ensure that the Singapore education system remains one of the best in the world.
So join the Ministry of Education as an Allied Educator, for a rewarding and fulfilling career in the provision of holistic education to every child.
Please look out for announcements on recruitment exercises on this space.
