Ha ha ha, guess what I just found out. MOE is asking me for my ‘O’ level results to ensure that I am qualified to do learning journey tours after I have been vocationally trained for the tours and been doing them for schools for at least 3 years. This is so funny because I am 64 years old, talk obviously like an educated person, possess a degree and have probably thrown away my ‘O’ level certificate.
So much for all that talk by MOE Ministers about how important skills and vocational training will be for future work and jobs. They should really talk to their bureaucrats first and convince them that there is more to learning than ‘O’ levels.
I might just boycott MOE and let them tell me that I am not qualified so that I can go to the press with my story and let everyone see how stupid the Ministry can be.
PS: On a more serious note, I don’t think any Ministry should ask any senior citizen (over 60 yrs) for ‘O’ or ‘A’ level certificates for any skills or vocational jobs. It is a form of discrimination.
