The Institute of Technical Education’s (ITE) mission is to create opportunities for students and adult learners to acquire skills, knowledge and values for employability and lifelong learning through a “Hands-on, Minds-on and Hearts-on”. Our approach is similar to the Institut Paul Bocuse’s educational philosophy of learning in an authentic environment, encouraging the enterprising spirit, as well as developing the person holistically.


Annually, ITE takes in about 25% of secondary school graduates annually, and has a student population of about 28,000.
Total of 98 programmes in the following schools :

  • Applied & Health Sciences
  • Business & Services
  • Design & Media
  • Electronics & Info-Comm Technology
  • Engineering
  • Hospitality


The participation in the Alliance by Institut Paul Bocuse provides ITE students the opportunity to be exposed to different cuisines and food cultures, and cultivate a global mindset in working with a diverse workforce for their career.


I was honoured to participate in the 10th edition of the Alliance Culinary Seminar in Kuala Lumpur, in September 2018. It was a great experience and an opportunity to expand my horizons while meeting new friends and industry partners globally. I received a deeper insight to Malaysian heritage and cuisine, and had a great exchange of culinary trends, cooking techniques and knowledge with fellow participants. This interesting cross exposure with different cultures, histories, and languages of other participating countries, which I am excited to continue to explore and experience, has given me the motivation to continuously upgrade myself, both personally and professionally

Honestly, I couldn’t believe that three months was over in a blink of an eye. It was a happening three months where I made some really good friends, and even learned new skills. I appreciate the people who have supported me, and not forgetting my school, ITE, which arranged this wonderful experience. Lastly, I want to thank you IPB for the constant encouragement and care
