Start by helping your students discover their interests and aspirations. Encourage them to attend school programmes and events offered by the polys.

Poly education focuses heavily on practice-based learning and hands-on training, so it is important for students to be comfortable with such a learning style.

All polytechnics adopt the GPA system for grading, so your students need to be disciplined to maintain a consistent GPA throughout their three years of study.
