Event description
A small group, hands on workshop, designed to provide our young participants with the right preparation and confidence

About this event


  • Professional coaching by an experienced Interview Skills and Communication Skills specialist
  • Small group (8 pax maximum), highly hands-on session
  • Learn by practical application and practice
  • Experience a mock DSA interview
  • Receive a personalised report and video recording post-workshop


As Interview Skills specialists, we are best positioned to give your child a helping hand to master the art of tackling interviews, and to handle such high stress moments confidently. The DSA-Sec program includes an interview for shortlisted applicants and for most children, this will be the first time they are experiencing an interview. An interview is a highly niche situation, one that is never replicated in our everyday life. Set them up for success by giving them the right preparation and to build their confidence in tackling not just the DSA interview, but for any interview they will face in the future.

This workshop is uniquely developed to be a highly practical and hands on workshop that will allow the trainer to coach each participant in a very comprehensive manner. It is designed to provide each student the opportunity to not only learn interview skills, but to actually put the skills to use and to have an experiential mock interview which will be recorded for the participant's own review and practice post the workshop.

This workshop will be run by Discovering Potential's founder, Hwang Siew Ling, who has extensive experience training students for their DSA interviews. Siew Ling is an Interview and Career Coach, and she is a Certified Advanced Behavioural & Career Consultant, as well as a Certified Practitioner of Neuro-Linguistic Programming. Siew Ling's full CV can be found here.

C. Kho: I can learn about the types of questions the interviewer might ask and i can practice how to answer the questions and get feedback to improve. The trainer was engaging and made the workshop fun to attend

A. Ong: The best part was the group interview at the end because we got to learn from each other's mistakes and learn how to improve on our own mistakes

A. Karthik: The best part was the feedback given at the end as I now know my weaknesses and how to improve them.

C: It was useful because it was very detailed


W.L. Goh: Siew Ling provided fantastic guidance and interview tips to my son. This enabled him to perform with a lot of confidence during his interview with Raffles Institution for Math DSA Domain. He was given a Confirmed Offer by the school! 

C.J. Slatter: The online course for P6 students was very useful and engaging.

M. Tew: We had a session of DSA coaching with Coach Siew Ling. Coach Siew Ling is a very pleasant and warm person. My daughter had gained many benefits from her guidance. She lead and taught my daughter to be more confident in answering questions. We will definitely want to have a session with her again in the future when an opportunity arises
