Applied Learning Programme 

The Applied Learning Programme (ALP) was introduced by MOE to help students connect academic knowledge and skills with the real world.  Students would be able to appreciate the relevance and value of what they are learning in the academic arena and to develop stronger motivation and purpose to acquire knowledge and skills.


The ALP plays an important role in CPS

1.  Equip pupils with Personal Learning Devices (PLDs) as a technology enabler to deliver the school and applied learning outcomes
2.  Provide pupils with a connected learning experience, enhanced by the integration of ICT using their PLDs in authentic learning settings and by harnessing coding that enables computational thinking for problem solving
3.  Inculcate habits and values of learning with PLDs into our pupils, thereby developing their 21st Century Competencies and Digital Literacy Skills
Orientation Stage for P5 to P6 – Orientation to Future Learning
1.  Continue pupils’ technology-enabled applied learning journey with production-centered learning and by leveraging digital media and communication elements to engage and influence
