Journey into the world of the MBTI® tool in Singapore’s education sector
At CPP, we focus on providing a holistic development approach for the education sector – while it is important to focus on helping students to be better, it is equally important to support the development of teachers as well. Thus, we have worked extensively with both students and educators from the education sectors across all levels, from Primary Schools to Universities.
For the Students:
- Career/Major Exploration – Finding a passion
The Strong Interest Inventory® and Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® provide insights to students about their interests, personality type and personal styles. They also identify the top 10 occupations students are most likely to find satisfying—as well as provide important information to guide their decisions. Detailed reports also identify specific careers, courses, internships, and activities for them to explore.
- Learning Styles/Study Skills/Time Management – Education Success
A whole range of factors can influence students’ academic performance, from not being challenged to simply taking classes that don’t match their true interests. The Strong Interest Inventory® and the Myers-Briggs® assessments can go a long way towards providing students with a better understanding of their interests and personality—getting them excited about school and finding the most effective way to prepare and manage time during exam preparation.
- Character & Leadership Development / Project Work Management – Social Emotional Skills
Interpersonal skills have become more important in the holistic development of our students. The Myers-Briggs® assessments can guide students to improve their relationships, develop leadership skills, and even reduce misunderstanding/conflict with classmates,teachers and others.
What could be better than helping students find their passion or succeed in school?
How about the teachers who educate the students? What support can we give them?
For the Educators:
- Teaching Styles / Curriculum Development – As a teacher
The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® allows teachers to gain insights into various approaches to understanding learning styles of different students, and how their personality type influences their teaching styles. With this insights, they can then adopt a more effective teaching methodology that works for different students. It also allows them to identify and understand the learning challenges faced by specific students.
- Career Guidance – As a career advisor / counsellor
By leveraging on the Strong Interest Inventory® and Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® (MBTI®) instruments, the teachers or career counsellors would be able to conduct a more structured and concrete career conversation with their students and provide guidance in their education options or career choices.
- Team & Leadership Development – As a team member / school leader
An effective and functional team is critical to the success of an organization. Explore the suite of CPP’s team development instruments to devise the most effective developmental program for the team and the school leaders.
