12 p. 

In 1964 singapore had a population of 1,844,200. Education is free for the 6 primary years. Successful students attend an academic secondary, a secondary commercial, or a secondary technical school. A 2-year preuniversity, a polytechnic, and a teachers' college are also available. Unsuccessful primary students receive 2 years additional work at a vocational school and, if successful, apply for admission to a vocational institute. The University of singapore and the nanyand University offer professional courses, and a polytechnic offers degree courses in civil, electrical, and mechanical engineering, architecture, and accounting. Secondary technical schools which provide instruction toward school-leaving certificates include courses in woodwork, metalwork, technical drawing, building, engineering practices, and engineering science. Secondary vocational schools provide 2 years of education with 50 percent in practical subjects. The one vocational institute provides a 2-year trade course and evening classes with full-time courses. Technical teachers are trained in the technical department of the teachers' college. Apprenticeship programs in the shipbuilding and repairing, and air and transport trades are developed under a noncompulsory government scheme. In-industry training at all levels is emphasized by the management of most firms. Vocational training is an integral part of economic development planning, and a vocational institute of engineering and one of manual and applied arts and building are planned. (jm)
