SINGAPORE - In a novel move, Institute of Technical Education (ITE) students are being trained to teach their fellow students financial planning, in a bid to give the students a lift in life.

After completing a 14-hour course conducted by lecturers from the Singapore Management University (SMU), these ITE students become trainers, running roadshows or workshops for their fellow ITE students.

A total of 42 ITE students have been trained since the programme started in the three ITE campuses this year. Another 30 are expected to be trained next year.
