3.		 Can WSDip applicants choose the company they want to work in?
		 Applicants can choose from a list of participating companies during the WSDip intake exercise.
   However, they must attend interviews conducted by the company and be employed by the
   company, before starting WSDip Programme.

4. 		 What do employers look for at the selection interview for WSDip applicants?
		 Like most recruitment processes, it is important for WSDip applicants to show good work attitude
   and passion for the job. Being interested in the company and displaying willingness to add value
   will help the applicant as well.

 As this is a Diploma-level programme, employers also expect applicants to be strong in knowledge and
 skills learnt from previous Nitec / Higher Nitec courses.

5.		Can Nitec / Higher Nitec students of non-feeder courses qualify for WSDip courses that they
     really like?
		 It is possible for Nitec / Higher Nitec students of non-feeder courses to be accepted in WSDip
   courses that they really like. However, approval is on a case-by-case basis and the employer has
   to say yes as well.

		 If the applicant is accepted, he / she will not get the sign-on incentive.

6.		 In the scenario where the intake period seems quite far off from the Operationally Ready
     Date (ORD), what can prospective WSDip students do in the meantime?
		 If waiting time for the next intake period is long, those who are interested can try to get jobs in
   areas related to the course, in order to better understand job expectations.

7.		Is there a bond period after the WSDip? If yes, how long is it?
		 Most companies do not impose a bond period after the WSDip. For those which do, bond periods
   typically range from 1.5 to 2 years. However, this information must be shared with applicants
   before the start of the course.

8.		 How will WSDip trainees be assessed in the course?
		 The trainees will be graded by the company and ITE. At ITE, we may require the trainees to go
   through an in-course assessment and a written test after a module.

9.		 Can WSDip graduates apply to progress to local universities?
		 WSDip graduates can apply to related full-time or part-time degree programmes in the National
   University of Singapore, Nanyang Technological University, Singapore Institute of Technology or
   Singapore University of Social Sciences, subject to the admission requirements of the university.

10. Will WSDip graduates get more pay and a higher job rank?
		 As Diploma holders, WSDip graduates can generally get more pay and higher job ranks that poly
   Diploma graduates enjoy.
		 However, it is only fair that companies do so after seeking good work performance as well.
   With a Diploma, graduates are likely to get career advancement and increased responsibilities
   in time to come.
