Schools may hire full-time Infocomm Technology executives



From July 2007, schools will have the option to engage full-time Infocomm Technology (ICT) Executives.
The ICT Executives will provide schools with professional ICT support and additional technical expertise to handle the increasingly sophisticated ICT implementation in schools.
The ICT Executive will manage the implementation of ICT projects in schools, assist the Head of Department (Information Technology) [HOD (IT)] in IT planning and introducing new ICT solutions that support teaching and learning. He will also execute daily ICT operational and administrative duties, such as procurement and inventory management.

With the support of the ICT Executive, the HOD (IT) will have more time and space to work with other HODs and teachers in integrating ICT with the curriculum. This will create an engaging learning environment for the students, as they are exposed to technology and communication tools in their lessons to access and manage knowledge.

MOE will provide a grant of $20.7 million for schools to engage additional ICT support staff, including ICT Executives.

Depending on their needs, schools will have the flexibility to tap on the grants provided for engaging additional ICT support staff, be it ICT Executives or any other forms of ICT support required such as in-house IT trainers or Technology Assistants.


The IT Masterplan in Education was first launched in 1997. It seeks to harness ICT in schools to equip our young with essential learning skills, creative thinking skills and communication skills that will help prepare them for the workplace of the future. It also seeks to make learning more engaging for students through the integration of ICT in the curriculum.
IT support for schools has been centrally provided as part of the IT Masterplan since 1999.
The support includes helpdesk, desktop support, network/server management, asset management and the provision of a Technology Assistant for every school.
In 2006, a study to review ICT support required in schools found that with the drive towards more ICT integration in the curriculum, school ICT projects are getting increasingly sophisticated and require greater technical support.
