Of some 12,000 college exams contributing to the Higher School Certificate (HSC) each year, only 2 000 to 3 000 are vying for a state scholarship. "The MES has made this suggestion to the Ministry of Education for there to be an HSC Academic and HSC Pro in parallel. We hope that it will meet the needs of those who want to pursue their tertiary education, while their HSC Pro has already formed for the workforce, "said Lucien Finette, director of MES at a presentation of HSC Reduces Pro, Tuesday, March 19.
In 2014, the MES choose the sector of information technology and communication (ICT). A growing sector in Mauritius. College students will be trained to integrate after college. And once fully inserted, the Pro HSC concern other sectors of the economy.
The college HSC Pro will opt for two or three main topics, including the Cambridge International Technological ICT in a mandatory work placement for two to four weeks in the first and second year during the holidays and one or two subsidiary subjects, as well as the Alternative to General Paper. During internships, college students will be supervised by officers of Mauritius Institute of Training Development (MITD).
