Design Thinking Academy (DTA)

The Victoria Cedar Alliance (VCA) Design Thinking Academy had its roots in a small committee set up in 2011, comprising teachers from Cedar Girls’ Secondary School, Victoria School and Victoria Junior College. Through research conducted during study trips, workshops and courses, the committee developed a curriculum that would equip VCA students with the knowledge, skills and dispositions of a social innovator.


In 2016, the VCA Design Thinking Academy was officially launched during the Victoria School 140th Anniversary Gala Dinner.


The VCA Design Thinking Academy continues to hold regular workshops to equip Singapore teachers with facilitation skills in teaching Design Thinking.
