    Singular or Plural

    Dear Teacher,

    Grateful if you could advise whether the singular and plural forms of "institution" in the following sentence are correct:

    The successful candidates are mainly deployed on duties of supervising the education programme in institutions or to head the education section in individual institution.

    Thanks a million!

    With best wishes,
    Ily

    "programmes in institutions" is right; in the second case you can say either "in AN individual institution" or "in individual institutions."
