[사립학교 졸업 사회초년생들의 60%가 월 평균 임금 S$2,550 정규직으로 취업]

 

 

사회초년생들의 취업 설문조사를 통해, 사립학교 졸업생 10명 중 6명이 졸업으로부터 6개월 이내 월 평균 임금 S$2,550 을 받는 정규직으로 취업한 것으로 조사 되었다.

 

이는 NUS, NTU, SMU, SUTD, SIT와 같은 로컬대학교의 통계치보다 낮게 나온 비율로서, 최근 실시된 로컬대학교들의 취업 설문조사 결과에 따르면 졸업한 지 6개월 이내 월 평균 임금 S$3,325, 기술전문대학들은 S$2,517 로 나타났다.

 

사립학교 졸업 사회초년생들의 파트타임, 프리랜서, 비정규직 등을 모두 합하면 84.3%가 나왔다.

 

40개의 사립학교 조사 결과, ERC Institute 의 정규직 취업률이 71.4% 로 가장 높게 나타났고, 뒤 이어 SIM(Singapore Institute of Management) Global Education 61.6%, Curtin Education Centre 58% 로 나타났다.

 

TMC Academy 졸업 사회초년생들의 월 평균 임금이 S$2,650 으로 가장 높게 나타났으며, 뒤이어 SIM S$2,600, ERC Institute $2,550 으로 조사되었다.

 

본 설문 조사는 지난 7~9월에 졸업생 3,521명을 대상으로 CPE(Committee for Private Education, 사립교육위원회) SkillsFuture Singapore이 공동으로 진행하였다. 참여 졸업생들 중 2,109명이 SIM, 50명이 Curtin Education Centre, 14명이 ERC Institute, 12명이 TMC Academy 출신이었다.

 

SkillsFuture Singapore CEO Mr. Ng Cher Pong 본 설문조사가 각 교육기관의 퀄리티 비교 또는 인지도를 반영하는 것은 아니지만, 예비 입학생들의 보다 양질의 학교 선택이 가능하도록 하는데 목표를 두고 있다. “ 라고 전했다. SkillsFuture Singapore 은 또한, 18개의 사립학교는 응답자가 10명 미만, 23개는 20명 미만이었다며 수집 샘플 데이터가 ‘small group’ 이었다고 밝혔다.

 

본 설문조사 결과가 발표된 이 후, 몇 몇 사립학교 Kaplan Singapore, MDIS(Management Development Institute of Singapore), PSB Academy에서는 본 데이터가 주로 Full Time(*참고 : 학생비자를 받아야 하는 외국인 학생들은 Full Time 과정으로 입학) 과정 졸업생들을 대상으로 진행 되었으며, 표본 수집이 충분히 이루어지지 않아 정확도가 떨어진다며 TODAY 로 연락을 취해왔다.

SINGAPORE — Six in 10 graduates from private education institutions found full-time jobs within six months after graduating, drawing an average starting monthly pay of S$2,550, an inaugural employment survey has found.

The proportion was lower than statistics from the autonomous universities, including the National University of Singapore, Nanyang Technological University, Singapore Management University, Singapore University of Technology and Design, and Singapore Institute of Technology.

Based on the latest employment surveys from these universities, 80 per cent of their graduates found jobs within six months after getting their degrees, with the average monthly starting pay pegged at S$3,325. Fresh polytechnic graduates earned about S$2,517 per month.

Overall employment rate among the private education institution graduates surveyed, which included those holding part-time, freelance and contract jobs, was at 84.3 per cent.

Among the 40 private schools polled, the ERC Institute had the highest full-time employment rate (71.4 per cent), followed by Singapore Institute of Management (SIM) Global Education (61.6 per cent), and Curtin Education Centre (58 per cent).

Fresh graduates from TMC Academy drew the highest starting pay of S$2,650 per month. Those from SIM earned S$2,600 per month on average, while those from ERC Institute drew S$2,550.

Conducted by SkillsFuture Singapore and the Committee for Private Education (CPE), the survey polled 3,521 graduates from July to September. Of the group surveyed, 2,109 were from SIM, as compared with 50 from Curtin Education Centre, 14 from ERC Institute, and 12 from TMC Academy.

They made up about a third, or 32 per cent, of the alumni who graduated from full-time degree programmes between May 2015 and April 2016.

The graduate employment survey for private education institutions was among the measures introduced in October last year to better protect prospective students by making information more transparent.

Commenting on the survey results, Mr Brandon Lee, SkillsFuture Singapore’s Director-General for private education said: “Given the wide range of publicly-funded and private upgrading options available, I would strongly encourage every student to assess their needs carefully before deciding on the pathway they would like to pursue.

“The (CPE) will also continue to review its requirements periodically to ensure that consumers’ interests are protected and (private education institutions) meet minimum standards.”

SkillsFuture Singapore chief executive officer Ng Cher Pong added that the survey results can help students “weigh (employment outcomes) against the cost involved in pursuing external degree programmes”.

However, students should exercise caution when interpreting the results, said SkillsFuture Singapore, as it noted that some of the institution-level data was based on small sample sizes. For instance, 18 of the schools polled had fewer than 10 respondents, while 23 had fewer than 20.

“The survey is not intended as a comparison of the quality or value of the respective institutions, and should not be interpreted as such.  Instead, our objective is to enable prospective students to make better informed decisions about their education and career choices, with the key findings,” said Mr Ng.

Private schools approached by TODAY said that while the survey results serve as a reference for prospective students, it does not take into account the employment outcomes of certain segments of their student populations, such as graduates from part-time degree programmes.

“(Private institutions) have myriad differences in their programme offerings…different student profiles and success stories. This survey only focused on full-time graduates, which is just one part of many considerations by both student and parents,” said Mr Leon Choong, president of Kaplan Singapore.

Dr R Theyvendran, Secretary-General of the Management Development Institute of Singapore agreed, as he noted that the sample sizes were not a good representation of the private education landscape.

Dr Sam Choon Yin, dean of the PSB Academy, said that the school’s graduate employment survey, conducted yearly among full-time and part-time graduates from degree-level programmes, found that over eight in 10 found jobs within six months of completing their studies.

The schools interviewed said graduate employability remains a top priority, and that they will continue to strengthen partnerships with foreign university partners, Government agencies and the industry to enhance the quality of their programmes.
