Student Life

Temasek LEADership Programme

At Temasek Polytechnic, we believe that talent is there to be nurtured, and every student is given opportunities to achieve their personal best.

The Temasek Leadership Programme (Temasek LEAD) is a talent development programme that aims to groom our high-performing students into leaders with vision, character and heart, beyond academic pursuits.

Our unique approach is crafted to stretch the potential of our high-performing students. In Temasek LEAD, students can expect to embark on an exciting journey of self-discovery and holistic development to attain the following four key areas of leadership:

  1. Personal Leadership
  2. Team Leadership
  3. Community Leadership
  4. Global Perspectives

Temasek LEAD students can look forward to participating in programmes such as:

  • Overseas Academic

    Head out on study trips, academic competitions and internships – overseas! This will expand your academic horizons, hone your cross-cultural sensitivities and give you insights into global industry developments that are relevant to your course of study.

  • Local and Overseas Adventure Expeditions

    Push yourself to the limits and overcome your boundaries to build your resilience, determination, self-awareness, teamwork and leadership skills while backpacking, canoeing, trekking, white water rafting and more in the great outdoors!

  • Learning Journeys, Dialogue Sessions and Symposiums

    Visits to parliamentary sittings, and participation in ministerial dialogue sessions and symposiums will expose you to diverse socio-economic environments that develop your perspectives on national policy formulation and global issues.

  • Personal Development

    To succeed in life, half the battle is won when you know how to write a good résumé and have the skills to be confident during interviews. Gain the knowledge and equip yourself with all the extra advantages that will come in handy when the time comes for you to apply for scholarships, universities and jobs.

  • Local and Overseas Community Service Projects

    It’s important to be responsible global citizens in a connected world. Make a difference to your community through volunteer work or head overseas and help teach English to Cambodian children, install solar lighting for a village in the Philippines ... the possibilities are endless!

In order to provide Temasek LEAD students with the best experiences possible, the programmes and activities are continually assessed, and may be subject to change. For enquiries regarding Temasek LEAD, email:
