Introducing the revamped ACTA (5th Version)

IAL is introducing the revamped ACTA (5th Version) featuring greater emphasis on knowledge acquisition through reflective practice and active learning. Unlike the current ACTA (4th Version), the revamped ACTA at IAL is delivered as an integrated curriculum (cohort intake).

 

How does the launch of revamped ACTA (5th Version) affect you?

+  Are you new to ACTA?
  • Commencing April 2014, if you are pursuing ACTA with IAL, you will be required to enrol into the revamped ACTA (5th Version) programme.
  • At IAL, the revamped ACTA will be delivered as an integrated curriculum (cohort intake). This means that learners will not be required to select the modules or sequence of learning. Learners will benefit from gaining peer support in their learning from the same group of classmates throughout the course.
  • If you have in-house courseware developer responsibilities, you are advised to further your learning by taking 2 development modules (Develop Curriculum and Instruction for Adult Learning Programme + Develop and Review Competency-based Assessment) from the Diploma in Adult and Continuing Education (DACE) upon completion of the revamped ACTA (5th Version).
  • If you are a first-time applicant of ACTA, select Version as “5th Version - Cohort” in Course Schedule page for Advanced Certificate in Training in Assessment.

+  Are you a current ACTA learner?
  • If you have completed one or more of the current ACTA (4th Version) ‘CU’ Competency Units as at 1st April 2014, there is no need to transit to the revamped ACTA programme, and you will be able to continue your current programme uninterrupted. However, you will be required to complete your qualification before 31 December 2015.
  • After 31 December 2015, the current ACTA (4th Version) will cease to be offered at IAL. If you wish to pick up your lapsed pursuit of the qualification and embark on the new ACTA (5th Version) programme at IAL, you will have to take up the entire new programme, as the programme is delivered in an integrated and non-modular format.
  • If you are a current ACTA learner who has completed one or more of the Competency Units previously, select Version as “4th Version - Module” in Course Schedule page for Advanced Certificate in Training in Assessment.

+  Are you a current holder of the ACTA qualification?
  • You have already met the WSQ Adult Education qualifications requirements and there is no need to transit to the revamped ACTA programme. However, you are encouraged to keep updated with the latest developments in the Training and Adult Education field.
