Total Defence Programme for Uniformed Groups

The Total Defence (TD) Programme for Uniformed Groups (UGs) aims to promote awareness of and participation in Total Defence among secondary school students in UGs. Refreshed in 2018, it creates more opportunities for secondary school UG cadets to participate in and lead Total Defence-related activities within their UG, school, and/or communities.

It will use the Appreciation, Application, and Advocacy model, with lessons designed to help cadets gain a deeper appreciation of Total Defence, put Total Defence into action, and be advocates for Total Defence as they earn the Bronze, Silver, and Gold Badges.

The refreshed 2018 edition of the programme will put greater emphasis on the changing nature of threats and challenges facing Singapore today. It also has a more flexible curriculum and will incorporate activities like the Guardians of the City II" Total Defence strategy card game to create a more meaningful and immersive experience for UG cadets.
