Hi guys I would like to ask how to increase the chance or showing better portfolios for me to apply the PCP physiotherapy course ? I failed it twice and to be honest I work as a Fitness Trainer for about 1 year plus and decided to try and applied it again for next year. Worst case about my situation is that I don't have any science related field diploma to apply to course but rather diploma in Electrical and Electronics Engineering ( Specialise in Biomedical Electronics). Does working as a therapy assistant for 1 year and above helps acing myself for the interview and application ?

If you can get shortlisted for the interview, the school results does not matter already. You really need to do well in the interview to get a spot in SIT Allied Healthcare.

Since you had been through the interview twice, you should know what they are looking for.

They are looking for critical thinking (thinking out of the box), compassionate and passionate personnel.

Go try and clock voluntary work to showcase, it will help you.

What I mean is I didn't get the interview twice. So I am not sure what the interview is and what they ask for ? Sorry for the misunderstanding 😅

If you did not get the interview, means your results are not good enough to be shortlisted. You will need to back it up with relevant job experience and voluntary work to show your passion to serve as a Allied healthcare worker.

Sorry, I do not have any recommendations. You can try jobstreet.

I was reading the PCP website, it says you will need 1 to 2 years of relevant work experience to be considered. So immediate goal for you is to get that Therapist Assistant job first.

For voluntary work, SG is now facing an aging population and lots of talk about dementia. So you can reach out to organisations or homes with these and ask if they looking for volunteers. They always require volunteers.

Good luck and wish you all the best.

Aside from results, you will have to draft an application statement on why you want to go into the programme. A sustained volunteering stint, preferably in a community hospital/hospital/ healthcare setting, will be advantageous for you as you get to see what you will eventually deal with. They are looking for certain traits to be admitted to the programme, having some volunteering experience in said areas will help you draft that statement letter provided you had reflected on your experiences instead of a "going with the flow" mentality.

A therapist assistant role will most definitely help as well, again, provided you have learn something from it and managed to reflect it both in writing and in the interview.

There's still a little time until Feb or march where the application opens and closes to pick up those experiences which will assist you in the application. Good luck.
